Daniel Cammish delivered a supremely controlled drive to snatch the “endurance” forty five minute encounter for Redline Racing, the second race of the Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain’s Spa-Francorchamps special.
Josh Webster led for half of the race distance for Team Parker Racing but it was almost entirely with another car in front of him, that of the safety team. An incident at Raidillon on the opening lap destroyed the G-Cat Racing machine of Thomas Jennings and In2Racing man Paul McKay was also a victim.
Once racing resumed, Cammish pounced and swept to a momentous victory. He, like race one winner Webster, realised the significance of a victory in front of the World Endurance Championship teams, commenting “This is the biggest race of my career, we had to deliver today and we did, so I couldn’t be happier.”
Behind, it was Webster and Michael Meadows (Samsung UHD TV Racing), who completed the podium order, the latter recovering from a disastrous first race of the weekend which he ended four laps down.
Webster’s teammate Stephen Jelley had a ding dong battle with Dino Zamparelli (Parr Motorsport) and Victor Jimenez (Redline Racing), the latter pairing enjoying a far better second weekend of the campaign.
In Pro-Am1 Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) delivered on his long promised form to take victory from Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) before the frankly terrifying sight of three cars bundling across the line: Mark Cole (Parr Motorsport), besting Jack Falla (Redline Racing) and Karl Leonard (Team Parker Racing) for third, fourth and fifth respectively.
Graeme Mundy earned a well deserved class victory in Pro-Am2 for In2Racing, with Asset Advantage Race Team man Ian Dockerill and race one victor Nerijus Dagilis rounding off the class podium ceremony. Tautvydas Barstys from Juta Racing and Peter Kyle-Henney from Parr Motorsport finished off the top five order.
We must now wait five weeks for our next dose of high octane action, around the picturesque Oulton Park circuit in June. Before this weekend, stalling Cammish’s momentum after Brands Hatch looked vital for his rivals to build up their own title charge. They certainly tried. Yet the ex-Formula Ford champion still leads the standings, so ultimately, they failed.
