The Porsche Carrera Cup UK held this weekend at the British circuit of Thruxton the third race of the season. The Spanish driver Víctor Manuel Jiménez was on the podium in both races, maintaining the third place overall with 92 points, fifteen points away from the second classified.


In this round, the Redline Racing driver has signed his highest rating so far, making the third fastest time and getting closer to the time of the pole. He had to invest almost twice around the rest of the grid, being the only pilot who didn’t participate in previous tests so he went out from zero. With the tires more used than his rival’s ones, Victor knew he would have to manage them very well to finish the race without problems. After a good start he remained in third place but in the last laps Oscar King made him go down to the fourth place, which wasn’t really a problem because the Spanish was a guest rider and didn’t add or block points.

In the second race the Spanish made another third place after Meadows and Webster, but this time it was just 3.9 behind the leader. “It was a good weekend and although we have suffered in the first race with an undriveable car because of the tires and the set-up which was not suitable to the state of the tires, the result has been positive. I feel stronger every time and I give each race a small step forward. In the second race I was able to keep pace with the leaders, with a less than four seconds difference with them and that means we’re improving. I’m very happy, I really enjoy each race and look forward for the next one.”

The fourth round of the season will be held on 7 and 8 June at Oulton Park.
