Esmee Hawkey podium success


Esmee Hawkey, Brand Ambassador for Porsche Centre South London, got her 2019 season off to a flying start with a second-place finish at Brands Hatch during the opening two rounds of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB.

Heavy fog delayed the start of the first race of the season, but Esmee was determined to set straight the misfortune in qualifying which gave her a starting grid position of fourteenth. Beginning the race on slick tyres she put in a marvellous drive, setting the fastest lap in her class in the process, moving up to finish in sixth place overall and second in class.

Esmee said: “I wasn’t happy after qualifying, so we had a lot of ground to make up. Race one was similar weather, but we went for slicks, as most people did, and went from fourteenth to sixth position with some great racing. I kept it clean and pushed every lap and we ended up second in class.

In race two I was disappointed in myself as I got a bad start and fell back behind my ProAm competitors, so instead of being second I was fourth. It was so close, and the lap times were so consistent but, unfortunately, we finished fourth. Overall though I’m really happy. We know what we need to work on, but we were quick enough to be racing up there so hopefully we can go for some race wins at Donington.”
