Fewkes Sport Management drivers Danny Dwyer and Mikey Doble showed their class at Snetterton this past weekend (20/21 May), as they continued their respective 2023 Porsche Sprint Challenge GB and Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship campaigns with further success.
Basking in the bright Norfolk sunshine, Dwyer stamped his authority on the one-make Cayman GT4 series by taking a clean sweep of Amateur Category podium finishes, whilst Doble made a welcome return to BTCC points after producing a hard-fought display.
Hot on the heels of an encouraging debut last month, Dwyer – who drives for leading outfit Xentek Motorsport – emerged as one of the standout talents from the second event of the season as he claimed a podium finish in all three contests.
Continuing to reap the benefits of the structure that FSM has built around him, the former Ginetta GT Academy racer qualified fourth and then charged to a superb second in class in a frenetic opening encounter.
Races two and three would see Dwyer further showcase his race craft and overtaking prowess by producing virtuoso performances that netted him a brace of third place finishes. This ensured that he was never off the podium, and more importantly, now moves up to third in the championship standings.
In the BTCC, there was plenty to be happy about for CarStore Power Maxed Racing’s Doble as he made a welcome return to the points-paying positions.
Continuing his education in the UK’s premier motorsport series, Doble, who scored a sensational Independents’ victory on his debut, piloted his Vauxhall Astra to a career-best 16th in qualifying.
Remaining in the thick of the battle throughout Sunday’s three bouts, last year’s BMW Compact Cup and Ginetta GT5 Challenge champion, showcased his talent to those in attendance with a storming drive in the finale to tally his second points finish in just three events.
“It was extremely pleasing to see Danny achieve his first clean sweep of podiums and Mikey score another point-scoring finish in only his third BTCC race weekend,” said FSM Founder Will Fewkes.
“Danny has arrived in the Porsche Sprint Challenge full of confidence and has adapted well to the car. We’ve built a strong structure around him and I really feel that he can continue to challenge for the Amateur Category title as we head to Croft in July. It’s certainly all to play for and I know that he will only grow from here.
“Mikey meanwhile has adapted well to life in the BTCC. Very few drivers have claimed an Independent’s win on their debut, and to score more points again is extremely positive. His work ethic is brilliant and we will continue to set a competitive base for him to work from for the remainder of the year.”
