Cammish Claims Morning Win, Eastwood and Sharp Return to the Rostrum

by Lee Bonham

Dan Cammish and Redline Racing are seemingly firmly back in control of the 2016 Porsche Carrera Cup GB, after the reigning champion claimed a scorching victory this morning at Snetterton.

From pole-position Cammish scampered away from the rest of the field, as the chasing pack was led by his teammate Charlie Eastwood.

The Irishman is back to his best this weekend and he remained calm to claim his fourth podium, his first second position, of the season.

At the venue where he claimed a maiden podium in 2015, Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) returned to the rostrum from third on the grid.

At the front of the field truth be told it was a quiet race, with the main drama in the Pro classification caused by a contretemps between Dino Zamparelli (GT Marques) and Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing). Jelley was spat horrifically into the pit-lane entry on the run to the line on the final lap, but was thankfully unharmed in the accident. Zamparelli was able to continue and finish sixth.

In2Racing claimed a double podium again in Pro-Am1 but Euan was split from Dan by series debutant Greg Caton in his G-Cat Racing car. This year has been a a difficult one for the squad that joined the series last year, so podium success was much deserved.

Pro-Am2 was claimed by Peter Kyle-Henney in the Parr Motorsport machine. Ian Dockerill (Asset Advantage Racing) finished in second position and Thomas Jennings brought the aforementioned G-Cat Racing another podium. Tautvydas Barstys was fourth in his Juta machine.

So Dan Cammish appears on course for further success this afternoon at 03:25pm, however Charlie Eastwood and Tom Sharp are starring this weekend in Norfolk. More silverware for both, would be much deserved.
