Josh Webster believes he has reached the pinnacle of his career to date after lifting the Porsche Carrera Cup GB crown at Brands Hatch.

Webster defeated double reigning champion Michael Meadows by nine points to lift the trophy in his first season in sports cars.

After taking maximum points in the morning’s opening race, Webster was passed on lap four of race two, but held position through treacherously wet conditions to score the points he needed.

“I’m absolutely ecstatic, I can’t believe it,” added Webster. “This is my greatest achievement for sure.”
