Emery, Seton Take Class Crowns As Simpson Equals Winning Record

Ryan Simpson, Geoff Emery and Aaron Seton crowned 2015 champs. Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Australia presented by Pirelli ended its 2015 season in sensational fashion with Aaron Seton and Geoff Emery claiming the Class B and Elite Class titles, Ryan Simpson equalling a series winning record and Dylan O’Keeffe claiming his first race win.

Simpson starred early in the day, winning the opening two races before young racer O’Keeffe claimed his first Porsche race win in the last race of the season – race three.

“I’m very happy and I couldn’t believe it when I crossed the line. I’ve been waiting all year to grab that first win and it’s great to have finally done it on the last race of the last round,” said O’Keeffe.

Simpson was thrilled to equal Matt Kingsley’s record of nine straight race wins and claimed the final Professional Class round win of the season from O’Keeffe and first time podium-getter Hamish Hardeman in third.

“It’s great to equal the record of nine straight race wins. It was tallying up there for a bit, but Dylan just pipped me there for the 10th win, which would have been good but wasn’t meant to be. It was still a great weekend with the round win,” said Simpson, who sealed the outright series win at the penultimate round at Phillip Island.

“The championship couldn’t’ have gone better. It went pretty smoothly and it was great to win it with a round to go. We had a few hiccups along the way, but we were winning enough races to rack up enough points.”

The fight for the Elite Class was won by Geoff Emery, taking the title in his first attempt. Emery capped the season with two race wins in class to win the Sydney round from John Karytinos and David Ryan.

“Winning the Elite Class championship was my goal all season. I wanted to win this one and tick that box. I’m very happy with the results. It’s a good, solid championship and it wasn’t easy to win, which was the best bit,” said Emery.

John Goodacre secured second in the Elite Class for the season from Tim Miles in third.

Seton was another driver to secure a title in Sydney, claiming the Class B crown on the final race of the season following a year-long on track tussle with Jaxon Evans.

“It been great racing with Jaxon this year; it’s been really close and we’ve been pushing each other all year. I can’t thank Scott Taylor Motorsport enough for this opportunity and obviously Jaxon for the great battle. Fortunately, we had the weather fall our way in race two with our tyre selection and it played our way.”

Evans placed second in class for the season from Jim Campbell.
