Motorbase PerformanceThere was plenty of reason to celebrate last Saturday (27 November) when Motorbase Performance had a hugely successful night at the annual awards night for the Porsche Carrera Cup GB.

The big winners were pro-am1 champion Ollie Jackson and Motorbase boss David Bartrum, who both took away a road-going Porsche 911 to use over the next 12 months.

For finishing second overall in the championship, Michael Caine collected a cheque for £10,000, while Jackson won £7000 for his pro-am1 victory. The team then collected £7000 for winning the team's championship and George Richardson earned £1000 for finishing third in pro-am2.

David BartrumThen, to his surprise and delight, George was announced as the 'most improved driver of the season' and earned another £1000. "To be selected for this award is a truly unique honour and leaves me with a real sense of satisfaction after what has been an amazing year," said the teenager." As with every season, we have had our fair share of highs and lows, but to end the year like this is just like Christmas has come early for me!”

Team boss Bartrum was delighted to see his young charge celebrated. "All credit to Michael Caine and Patrick de Groot for working with George and helping to bring him on. We had a lot of awards to pick up and we got our Porsches!"
