PREVIEW: Cammish Leads the Carrera Cup Cavalry To Croft


Dan Cammish has only been beaten twice in the 2015 Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain and his rivals must aim to prevent the Redline Racing man further extending his massive championship lead this weekend at his home venue of Croft.

Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) and Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) are the only two men to have bested Cammish this year but on both occasions he tailed them home and both men have suffered from bad-luck through incident or penalty this season so far. A dominant weekend for both is not possible so one needs to assert authority over the other to lead the charge after Cammish.

Stephen Jelly is Webster’s teammate and has been unable to recapture his stunning qualifying form from Brands Hatch. He has pace and potential, the same of which could be said of Nicholas Latifi whose car resides next to Meadows’ in the Samsung garage.

Tom Sharp and IDL Racing have brought colour to the Carrera Cup of Great Britain and a podium in Yorkshire would be just reward for this hard working outfit. Ryan Cullen (G-Cat Racing) and In2Racing’s Dino Zamparelli both have single-seater pedigree yet neither has looked capable of stepping onto the rostrum thus far in 2015. The uniqueness of Croft coupled to its high speed nature and downforce dependent area of the Jim Clark section may well suit the pair.

In Pro-Am1, Juta Racing have returned with a bang and lead the standing with Ignas Gelzinis, formally of the UK Clio Cup. Redline Racing pair Jordan Witt and Jack Falla starred at Oulton Park and victory for either would not be unexpected this weekend.

Pro-Am2 remains too close to call yet Chris Dockerill and the Asset Advantage Race Team lead the way after a brutal second encounter in Cheshire three weeks ago. His nearest challenger is John McCullagh (Redline Racing) and you find an interview with the former Porsche Club Series champion here: https://www.thecheckeredflag.co.uk/2015/06/carrera-cup-gb-special-john-mccullagh-interview/

Qualifying takes place at 15:05 on Saturday with both races on Sunday, at 12:42 and 16:19 respectively. It remains a case of Cammish: Catch him if you can…
