Guess Who? Cammish Victorious Again, Pro-Am1 Stars…

by Lee Bonham

Dan Cammish claimed victory in the second Porsche Carrera Cup GB race of the day at Snetterton, the Redline Racing driver further stretching his championship advantage.

Charlie Eastwood further added to his podium tally with another second position finishing result, and the Irishman has been Cammish’s closest rival this weekend. Mightily impressive bearing in mind his lack of Porsche experience.

Dino Zamparelli and GT Marques responded well to a difficult weekend with a podium in the finale, but the momentum the former GP3 man seemed to have gained at Croft has seemingly been halted in Norfolk.

Dan McKay was victorious in Pro-Am1 but that statement alone does not do justice to a tremendous performance put in by the In2Racing driver. He finished sixth overall, besting several Pro classification drivers. Euan McKay was an equally as respectable eighth and Sean Hudspeth was tenth in his chrome liveried Parr Motorsport machine.

Three Pro-Am1 cars in the top ten is a result not to be overlooked. It reflects the ever increasing quality within the class and the three named on the race two rostrum already look like promising GT driving stars.

Tautvydas Barstys returned to the Pro-Am2 rostrum with a victory for Juta Racing, Peter Kyle-Henney second in his Parr machine and Mark Radcliffe third for Intersport. Despite often attracting the wrath of this writer due to driving standards issues, the class this year has been remarkably professional for what is in theory a Gentleman’s category.

Onwards to Knockhill, where plans for the category’s 2017 campaign may begin to come to light. At Snetterton today the class battles have begun to settle and at the front of the field it is as you were. Dan Cammish is the man in charge. Dino Zamparelli can bounce back have no doubt. Further podiums beckon for Tom Sharp. Charlie Eastwood will spring a surprise or two as well. Not all to play for… But plenty of fun to have.
