Dan Cammish continued his winning streak by claiming the first victory of the Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain weekend at Oulton Park, as the qualifying top three remained in order to produce a Cammish, Nicholas Latifi (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) and Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing) podium. Michael Meadows’ weekend disintegrated and he dragged his Samsung machine home a lowly eighteenth.
Writer’s of The Big Book of Superlatives are said to be in strife, after former Formula Ford champion Cammish once again extracted the best performance possible from a Type 991 machine, on this occasion in Cheshire, not even allowing a mid-race safety car to detract from the job at hand: obliterating the opposition.
Latifi had every right to be immensely proud of his second position, looking ever more likely to be a race winner before the second half of the season. He comments, “I want to keep this momentum and get back on the podium. I should be able to do so with another strong starting spot tomorrow.”
Behind Jelley, Parr Motorsport man Dino Zamparelli is improving race by race, this time narrowly bested by Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) and besting IDL Racing rookie Tom Sharp, who put in another impressive display for the family team.
In Pro-Am1 and Pro-Am2, dreams unravelled as Karl Leonard lost out on the last lap in the former class to Jordan Witt, Redline Racing beating Team Parker. Witt summarises, “I just relaxed, got into my own rhythm and watched it all unfold in front of me.” Leonard fell off the class podium, completed by Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) and Jack Falla (Redline Racing).
In Pro-Am2, John McCullagh narrowly missed converting pole position to the race victory, Scott Marshall and GT Marques besting the Redline Racing man, an interview with whom can be found on The Checkered Flag tomorrow morning. Asset Advantage Race Team contender Ian Dockerill completes the podium list.
