That of course meant Dan Cammish was a dominant lights-to-flag winner at the head of the field, negotiating late race traffic and maintaining a run of four victories from the resumption of action at Snetterton two weeks ago.
Charlie Eastwood trailed his champion Redline Racing teammate for the duration, a role he has fulfilled ably post Summer break. The battle for third was the most engaging on track as the two Toms, Sharp and Oliphant, diced spectacularly. In the end it was the former who claimed his second podium of the weekend for IDL Racing.
Alessandro Latif made another poor getaway but was at least able to claim fifth for GT Marques, ahead of teammate Dino Zamparelli, following a weekend that has signposted the changing fortunes of the two drivers. One on the rise, the other on the way down to earth following a run of early season success.
In2Racing stars Euan McKay and brother Dan were back at the head of the Pro-Am1 contingent, but were joined in race two by class stalwart Justin Sherwood, bringing Team Parker Racing some much deserved silver-ware after a somewhat difficult season for the former class stars.
Mark Radcliffe was victorious in Pro-Am2 for Intersport and was this time able to keep that victory, having been excluded from race one for a technical infringement. It was not an easy success, having to charge through the class order following early race difficulties. Tautvydas Barstys (Juta Racing) went one better than his morning third with second in class and Thomas Jennings was again on the rostrum for G-Cat Racing.
So Carrera Cup GB now enjoys a four week break before the final two rounds of the season at Silverstone and Brands Hatch on the GP circuit. Title battles are starting to resolve and such dominance as witnessed this weekend is set to become the deciding factor across the classes. The Checkered Flag will feature interviews with class stars and analysis of the season so far over the break, so stay tuned for more Porsche content.
