Dino Zamparelli, ignored in-spite of his tremendous qualifying performance by this author, brought himself and the GT Marques team firmly to the attention of the Silverstone crowds by winning round thirteen of the 2015 Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain.
Josh Webster of Team Parker Racing finished fourth and was de-throned. Samsung SUHD TV Racing man Michael Meadows lost the lead from pole position and then valiantly tried to hold onto his slipping title chances, before literally slipping off the road on radiator fluid from another car.
All names on a page though. All ultimately over shadowed. The 2015 Porsche Carrera Cup of Great Britain champion, drum roll and all, is Dan Cammish for Redline Racing.
Dan has dominated this year and a full interview with one of the most talented men in the recent history of the TOCA package, indeed national motorsport, will be live on The Checkered Flag later this week.
Races in a word? Zamparelli = Sublime. Cammish = Calm. Meadows = Misfortune. Webster = Controlled.
In Pro-Am1, Ignas Gelzinis continued his rise to the top of the tree, with a win for Juta Racing. He was followed home by Daniel McKay who continues to star for In2Racing and Redline’s Jordan Witt.
Then we come to Pro-Am2, whom appear to be back to their smash happy ways. Tautvydas Barstys and Ian Dockerill, Juta and Credit4Cars respectively, caused the most mischief and mayhem by colliding and dropping fluid at Becketts, nearly catching out the race leaders.
Ultimately it was another Juta car, Nerijus Dagilis who emerged victorious, from John McCullagh (Redline Racing) and G-Cat Racing’s Peter Jennings.
All of which sets us up nicely for the second race, a report of which will follow shortly.
