Dan Cammish and Michael Meadows have thus far dominated the Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain weekend at the picturesque Oulton Park circuit, as the teams and drivers returned from a Spa-Francorchamps round packed with drama.
It was Samsung SUHD TV Racing driver Meadows who made hay on Friday, leading both morning and afternoon sessions from Redline Racing star Cammish. The former double champion was feeling optimistic, commenting, “This was exactly what we needed because it’s important to get off to a positive start here.”
Dino Zamparelli and Parr Motorsport appeared to have found form, Dino third in the first session, a position occupied by Nicholas Latifi in the latter contest, making it a Samsung one and three.
The story of qualifying is a little more convoluted. The key points: Cammish will line-up first for race one and Meadows will hold that position for the rolling start on Sunday.
Latifi’s upturn in form continues with a second position and third position grid slot for the races leaving him in with a shout of maiden Carrera Cup GB victory. Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing) will take third for race one and sixth for race two. Meadows holds a disappointing fourth for the first race. Reigning champion Josh Webster occupies the sixth and fourth spaced spots on the grid for rounds five and six respectively.
In Pro-Am1 Karl Leonard, Jordan Witt and Ignas Gelzinis occupy the top three class positions in both races for Team Parker, Redline Racing and Juta Racing respectively. Irishman Leonard stands out for taking fifth and eight overall for the two races.
In Pro-Am2, John McCullagh took pole for the opening race of the weekend and an interview with the former Porsche Club champion can be found on The Checkered Flag tomorrow morning. Peter Kyle-Henney has the position for the second race of the weekend,the Redline versus Parr Motorsport battle continuing with this duo too.
