Josh Webster clinched the Porsche Carrera Cup GB title after finishing second in a nail-biting season finale behind title rival Michael Meadows at Brands Hatch this afternoon.

The race ace from Mickfield, near Stowmarket and Debenham, had to hang on a wet track with slick tyres after the heavens opened mid-race.

Although Meadows passed him on lap four, Webster — in his maiden season in sports cars — kept his title rival in sight

Leader Dan Cammish dived into the pits for slicks when the rain came down, allowing the championship battle to play out at the front and Webster held on to second to take the title away from double champion Meadows.
