UK champions through the years
We have had some incredibly close battles, brilliant performances and miraculous personal journeys through the seven years of racing Panthers in SuperStock and here is a list of all the teams and racers that claimed the ultimate silverware.
2011 - Pertemps, John Wilson and Neil Scarborough
2012 - Pickfords, Dean Stoneman and Dean Paling
The first P1 SuperStock Champion of the Panther-era was Pertemps
pair John Wilson
and Neil Scarborough
. They recorded a 121-point tally, four higher than their nearest rivals Peters & May
in second despite not scoring in the final Grand Prix of the Sea of the season.
2013 - MBY Allam Marine, Andy Biddle and Tracy Blumenstein
2014 - GD Environmental Services, James Norvill and Charlie Parsons-Young
Three weekend victorious helped the Pickfords
pair of Dean Stoneman
and Dean Paling
to the title by an impressive 43 points with Pertemps
a further two points back.
2015 - Flying Panther, Nick Williams and Martin Robinson
2016 - Pertemps, Sam Coleman and Daisy Coleman
A condensed calendar in 2013 played in the favour of MBY Allam Marine
who held off late pressure to win the trophy ahead of P1 Marine Foundation
. American duo Andy Biddle
and Tracy Blumenstein
held the trophy aloft thanks to large points hauls from the opening two rounds.
2017 - Pertemps, Sam Coleman and Daisy Coleman
The blockbuster series saw GD Environmental Services
– James Norvill
and Charlie Parsons-Young
– notch a 278-point haul to claim top spot, ahead of second-placed IFX Racing
by 17 points, with the help of a resounding final round victory.
It was a close finish in 2015 as just six points separated Flying Panther
in first and second-placed Pertemps
. Big victories in the opening round in Scarborough
and a strong showing in Cardiff
helped lift Nick Williams
and Martin Robinson
in the Flying Panther
past the chasing pack.
What a debut year it was for the Pertemps
team of Sam and Daisy Coleman
as they were formidable in their pursuit of a title. Three Grand Prix of the Sea victories out of five was enough to see them beat Quantum Racing
by 47 points.
It came down to the final race of the season as a three-round series was won by Sam and Daisy Coleman
in the Pertemps
Panther. Their second successive victory didn’t end as comfortably as a year prior courtesy of Milford Waterfront
’s superb performance in the closing round.
