The Porsche Carrera Cup GB may be the only TOCA support category with the main title decided heading into the final races of the season on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit but as today’s qualifying session proved,it is the series most likely to spring a surprise during tomorrow’s two races at 10:35 and 16:17.
Not surprising though, is the man on pole position for race one. The champion Dan Cammish, unburdened of championship permutations, stormed his Redline Racing car to the front of the grid for race one and he sits second for the second encounter.
Tom Sharp and IDL Racing have been infrequent visitors to these Porsche reports but that looks set to change this weekend. The former Ginetta star has long had a successful Brands Hatch GP relationship and starred in qualifying to take a second position on the grid for race one and then a stunning pole position for race two.
This is sure to help him in his battle against GT Marques and Dino Zamparelli in the fight for the Rookie prize. Zamparelli is third on the grid for both races, proof if it were needed that his Silverstone success was no one-off.
The Pro-Am1 title fight is incredibly tight and that is reflected in the Saturday time sheets. Redline driver Jordan Witt leads Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) and IN2Racing’s Daniel McKay for round fifteen and for round sixteen that order is reversed for the top two. One of Gelzinis or Witt needs to take charge tomorrow to ensure glory returns to their camp.
Finally to Pro-Am2. Redline Racing again have an advantage thanks to class leader John McCullagh’s pair of pole positions. Juta driver Tautvydas Barstys is second and third for the penultimate and final rounds of the year, these positions a mirror of G-Cat Racing man Peter Jennings qualifying results.
So one day remains and four titles (including the Team contest) remain up for grabs. Buckle up. Brands Hatch promises an absolute blast across all categories tomorrow.
