Dan Cammish is set to return to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB in search of a third title as he reunites with Team Redline Racing.

Following the announcement that he would no longer be racing with Team Dynamics in the BTCC, Cammish heads back to the series that saw him take back-to-back titles in 2015/2016.

Cammish made his series debut in 2015 and made an immediate impact, taking eleven victories and a further five second places from 16 races. The following season would see the Yorkshireman achieve 12 wins on the way to his championship double.

In 2017 Cammish impressed on the world stage as he defeated 60 other drivers to take the win at the supporting race to the 24 hours of Le Mans. Despite another strong year he missed out on the title, ending his time in the series with 31 wins and 40 podium finishes.

A move into the British Touring Car Championship saw him upset the regulars, gaining 31 podium finishes in his three years in the series, including narrowly missing out on the championship in 2019.

Even during his time in BTCC Cammish retained his ties with Redline, assisting with driver coaching for the team.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have Dan [Cammish] back on the grid with us in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB this year. The BTCC’s loss is certainly our gain and we can’t wait to see what Dan can achieve this season,” said Simon Leonard, Managing Director.

“Dan’s run between 2015 and 2017 was simply fantastic, and he was competing at a different level to the competition. We have no doubt that he’ll be right back challenging at the front this year and adding more silverware to his impressive collection.” he added

The return of Cammish looks set to bring some intense battles for the new season, while the bulk of the grid is still yet to be announced, dominant 2020 champion Harry King will be doing his utmost to retain his title.

A delighted Cammish can’t wait to get the season going, “It is great to be returning to Redline Racing ahead of the 2021 Porsche Carrera Cup GB season. In a way it feels like I never really left, having worked for the team as a driver coach in recent seasons.

“I have a fantastic relationship with Simon Leonard, and the whole team showed me a lot of support throughout my time in the BTCC. I am thankful to Simon for the opportunity to return to Porsche racing in the highly competitive Carrera Cup GB and I look forward to the season ahead.”
