Dan Cammish and Redline Racing made a dramatic entry or rather return to the Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain at Brands Hatch during the Easter weekend, scoring two sublime victories against some of the toughest competition in class history.
The BRDC SuperStar stated his intentions from lights out in the opening race of the year, wrestling the lead off of Team Parker Racing pole sitter Stephen Jelley by the culmination of a fraught opening lap.
Following a pair of safety car periods, the dominant Formula Ford of Great Britain champion of 2013 was an image of calm amongst a rapidly self-destructing Carrera Cup GB field. Successful negotiation of two safety car periods was followed by the slight relief of a race ended early due to a three car shunt in the dying laps.
The second race was completely different, with an intense game of cat and mouse played out between Cammish and Jelley. This time it was the Parker driver’s turn to withstand the
pressure following a pair of safety car interventions.
Yet Cammish’s tenacity paid off and he forced the tiniest of errors out of Jelley on the twenty ninth tour. The pair ran side by side into Surtees and Cammish successfully grabbed the lead and sailed to his twenty seventh win out of twenty eight races on the TOCA package and the Driver of the Weekend award.
Before we head to Spa in early May for the standout event on the calendar, Cammish should have the last word on such a successful weekend. “The success is great for my sponsors too, Nationwide and PPG. I would not be here without those guys and of course Tim Harvey who got me this drive.”
