Porsche Carrera Cup GB championship dominator Dan Cammish heads to Scotland with an ever growing series lead and the feeling that perhaps one racing gloved hand is already resting on this year’s trophy.
The Redline Racing driver once again doubled up at Snetterton with two controlled and accomplished drives. Speaking of his performance in Norfolk, the Yorkshireman comments “We had a really good car on Wednesday in the test, and then again on Friday I was really happy with it. In Saturday qualifying it was probably the best it’s been, so I was thinking ‘great, let’s keep this up’, but in the races I was chasing the car a little bit.”
Despite his slight lack of comfort in his Type 991 machine, Cammish once again delivered two tremendous races and further stretched his series lead. So how is the former Formula Ford GB champion looking ahead to the final three rounds of his season? “I want to be the champion this year and I think I’ve got the team and car behind me to do it. I’ve just got to stay clean and keep picking up podium finishes, as a DNF in this championship is a killer, it would unravel all of our hard work so far.”
The championship now heads to Knockhill, a venue renowned for close, competitive and no holds barred racing. Whilst Cammish must look to have one eye on staying out of any of that potential DNF causing carnage, qualifying is set to be crucial. One final quote from the man, with everything to lose in Scotland. “You can be the fastest car on track but still start eighth. Speaking to Tim Harvey and the people around me, the plan is just to go there and get through it, hopefully in one piece. Then again you could go there and have a perfect day, so we’ll have to see how it goes.”
