Michael Meadows has lit up the Porsche Carrera Cup GB title fight by snatching a double pole position at Silverstone for the Samsung SUHD TV Racing squad.
The two points these results give Meadows, means he closes to within 72 points of his title rival Dan Cammish. For the Redline Racing driver, this weekend has sadly not run as dominantly as previously.
A fourth and a fifth for the two races on Sunday, both televised as part of itv’s extensive BTCC coverage, still put him in the pound seat for title victory.
With the situation as it is, Cammish just needs to stay exactly where he is to be crowned Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion of 2015.
Brookspeed’s Jayde Kruger is the star turn of the weekend, his results a mirror of Cammish’s. At one point he appeared set for a stunning double pole but was ultimately usurped at the death of the session.
In Pro-Am1 it is Ignas Gelzinis who stands head and shoulders above the rest for Juta Racing. His grasp on the class title is strengthening and he will place himself perfectly to snatch the crown at Brands on his current form. Jordan Witt for Redline and Daniel McKay for In2Racing will likely jostle hard tomorrow, second and third respectively for race one and then reversed for race two, again behind the Lithuanian Gelzinis.
Peter Jennings for G-Cat Racing is the form man in Pro-Am2, two pole positions, one from Juta driver Nerijus Dagilis (who is third for race two) and one from Redline’s class leader John McCullagh. Third for race one is Credit4Cars’ Ian Dockerill.
A title will be decided tomorrow at Silverstone you sense. Cammish is doing just enough at the moment. The competition is ready to pounce if he slips but once. Glory on a knife edge. Race one is live at 10:15am tomorrow morning on itv4. Right now, that’s all the mind’s of Porsche racing fans, teams and competitors are focussed on.
