Knockhill 2015

UK’s fastest one-make series heads to Knockhill for rounds 11 & 12

Knockhill circuit might only be 1.3 miles long, but it crams a lot of excitement into its myriad of twists and turns.  There is quite a distinct elevation change for the drivers to contend with, too, and when you throw in the famously unpredictable weather, the fearsome Fife track is a thrill to truly master!

 

Set as it is on the side of picturesque Knock Hill, with stunning views down the Firth of Forth, the track is always a good setting to blow away the mid-season cobwebs and crack on with the balance of the Championship title chase.

 

As the 11 teams contesting this year’s record-breaking Carrera Cup GB arrive in Scotland for rounds 11 & 12, it is Redline Racing’s Dan Cammish (Leeds) who seems set to blow away his challengers once again. The Championship newcomer has set an impressive pace in his first season in the 460 hp 911 GT3 Cup race car, but he has had to push hard to pull ahead.

 

Breathing hardest down Dan’s neck will be Oxford-born two-time Carrera Cup GB Champion Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) and 2014 title holder (and Carrera Cup GB Scholar) Josh Webster (Stowmarket), who finished 1-2 in both of last year’s Knockhill encounters.

 

This pair has a real advantage in terms of knowing how the rear-engined Porsches handle here – and arguably also recognising where the rain will lay around the course should the skies inevitably darken. Another driver with an ace up his sleeve is former BTCC driver Stephen Jelley (who also raced in Carrera Cup in 2010 and 2011). Stephen (Leicester) lies third in the Championship at present, and is a man to watch this weekend.

 

Uniquely, the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship has three races ‘within a race’ – the pace-setters contend the ‘Pro’ category. ‘Pro-Am1’ is for drivers wishing to benchmark themselves against the best while gaining experience, and ‘Pro-Am2’ enables drivers to gain their first taste of Porsche racing and get familiar with the 911 GT3 Cup.

 

The two guys tussling for the lead of the Pro-Am1 category are Lithuanian Ignas Gelzinis and Nantwich-based Jordan Witt, and both will be revelling in the intensity of racing at Knockhill. In Pro-Am2, John McCullagh (Great Smeaton) and Iain Dockerill (Rochford) are closely matched, and John will arrive in Scotland with the momentum of a sensational drive from the back of the grid in the last race at Snetterton to clinch the category win.

 

The team standings also hang in the balance with little separating Redline Racing and Team Parker Racing. Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster and Stephen Jelley are just five points ahead of Redline Racing duo Dan Cammish and Jordan Witt. Consequently fans will enjoy thrilling non-stop action throughout the two Porsche Carrera Cup GB races this weekend.

 

After qualifying on Saturday (22 August) at 13.50, round 11 of the Carrera Cup GB will start at 09.00 on Sunday with round 12 later that day at 15.00 (23 August). Live coverage of Sunday’s action will be broadcast on ITV4.

Sutton and Meadows top Knockhill practice

Free Practice One

 

Former double Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion James Sutton (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) used his wealth of experience around the classic Scottish track to go fastest in the morning practice session. The 29-year-old Londoner overcame mixed conditions to edge out rivals Dan Cammish and Michael Meadows, who finished within a tenth of the Championship returnee.

 

The session was temporarily halted on two occasions as both John McCullagh (Redline Racing) and Chris Dockerill (Credit 4 Cars Motorsport) were involved in incidents that required red flags. Despite those interruptions, the 24-car field was able to gain more vital track time around the undulating 1.3 mile track.

 

“It was a bit of an eye-opener trying to deal with all the traffic,” Sutton commented. “The key thing was finding a clear lap, which was very tricky to do, so I’m not sure how representative that lap will be. The car felt great but the track was very slippery. I think we’ve got a few little things to work on but the test here on Tuesday morning will definitely stand us in good stead. It’s such a culture shock driving Porsches here because you have to adapt your driving style from what it was like at Snetterton.” 

 

The standout performance came from 24-year-old Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) who finished first in the Pro-Am1 class and fifth overall. The Nantwich-based driver’s time was faster than five of the Pro drivers. “The track was very greasy, especially in the first turn,” Witt said. “I have to admit that I had a few questions marks as to whether we had gone for the right set-up but we made a couple of changes before that last stint which seemed to come together really well. We were just trying to get the most from the used tyres.”

 

Another star performer was 24-year-old Daniel McKay (IN2 Racing) who was taking on a track he knows well from Legends racing. “I’m really happy with how that session went,” the Pro-Am2 driver stated. “I’m still getting used to the car and how it reacts which is always going to take some time but gradually I’m getting up to speed. Hopefully we will be able to continue that progress and take that form into the business end of the weekend. All in all though, I have to be happy with finishing twelfth overall.”

Free Practice Two

 

The winner of the last four Porsche Carrera Cup GB races at Knockhill, Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing), produced a superb performance to top the afternoon timesheets. The 27-year-old was on top for the majority of the session, which was also interrupted by two red flag periods.

 

The two-time champion, who has five wins in total at the undulating venue, looked to have ominous pace ahead of tomorrow’s qualifying session, which will be of upmost importance given the tight and twisty nature of the circuit. The last nine Porsche Carrera Cup GB races have been won by the pole-sitter.

 

“It’s difficult to say whether you can read too much into that session,” the Oxford-born driver commented. “I just got into a nice rhythm and wasn’t pushing too hard so the times came a bit easier and I was able to do six or seven good laps. We’ve been making changes which seem to have worked. With the experience I have at this track I know when and where to push, so I’m looking forward to it.”

 

Defending champion and Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster displayed his pure pace to finish second in the timings. The 21-year-old looks in good shape to have a very strong weekend. Nantwich-based Jordan Witt topped off an excellent day by rounding off the top three, under two tenths off the pace set by Meadows.

 

Witt’s nearest challenger in the Pro-Am1 category was 27-year-old Jack Falla, who ended up in eleventh position. The former Porsche GT3 Cup Australia driver feels there is more to come tomorrow. “It’s such a tight field that a couple of tenths would have put me up the field,” Falla said. “The circuits are completely different to what I’m used to in Australia. It’s very difficult to pass here but I am really enjoying it. I do feel confident and I’m fairly certain we can move forward from where we are.”

 

In the Pro-Am2 class, Daniel McKay (IN2 Racing) was the pacesetter once more, going nearly half a second quicker than his nearest rival Francis Galashan (GT Marques). The Scot will be hard to beat if he carries over today’s pace into tomorrow’s qualifying.

 

Tomorrow’s qualifying (22 August) takes place at 13.50, with round 11 of the Carrera Cup GB starting at 09.00 on Sunday and round 12 beginning later that day at 15.00 (23 August). Live coverage of Sunday’s action will be broadcast on ITV4.

Webster and Cammish take Porsche Carrera Cup GB poles at Knockhill

Media release: 22nd August 2015

Defending champion and Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) produced a stunning performance to set a new Championship lap record at Knockhill and take pole for tomorrow’s first race. The 21-year-old will also start on the front row of the grid for Sunday’s second race after appearing supremely confident in his 460 hp GT3 Cup Car.

 

Webster carried through his impressive pace from Friday’s practice sessions to put himself in a great position to score some strong points around the notoriously narrow Knockhill circuit. The Stowmarket-based driver was only pipped by current Championship leader Dan Cammish (Redline Racing) for round 12 pole.

 

“It’s a bit of a shame not to have double pole but I’m really happy with how that went,” Webster said. “The car was absolutely blistering. I wouldn’t say my lap was stunning in any particular place but I just hooked it all up and felt enormously confident out there. Track position is crucial here and we’re really confident with our race pace, so hopefully we can turn it into a win tomorrow. I want to send a massive thanks to my team and sponsors.”

 

Samsung SUHD TV Racing team-mates Michael Meadows and James Sutton also enjoyed a solid qualifying, after locking out the second row of the grid for both races. Meadows in particular will be one to watch after winning the last four races at the venue.

 

Brookspeed’s Jayde Kruger and IDL Racing’s Tom Sharp will also be dangerous after taking good starting grid spots which should provide the perfect platform to mount a challenge on those in front. Sharp will be full of confidence following his impressive performance at Snetterton.

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Juta Racing’s Ignas Gelzinis and Redline Racing’s Jordan Witt both notched a class pole. Gelzinis’ fastest time was particularly impressive, going faster than five Pro drivers. “I’m absolutely delighted with that session,” the Lithuanian commented. “Naturally it was more than we ever expected because it was the first time I’ve raced at this track and it’s not very easy to learn.

 

“I’ve had gearbox issues this weekend so it’s been really stressful,” he added. “I’ve studied all the possible data and something just clicked on my fastest lap. It’s a slight pity that I couldn’t make my second fastest a bit quicker but the result is still excellent. I am going to try and stay out of trouble tomorrow and get some important points.”

 

GT Marques’ Francis Galashan and Juta Racing’s Nerijus Dagilis clinched a Pro-Am2 pole position each. Little separated the main contenders in the tightest category as there was less than a tenth between the top three finishers for tomorrow’s first race. Meanwhile, front-runners John McCullagh (Redline Racing) and Iain Dockerill (Asset Advantage Race Team) will be determined to gain places in their title battle.    

 

Round 11 of the Carrera Cup GB will start at 09.00 tomorrow with round 12 at 15.00 (23 August). Live coverage of the second race will be broadcast on ITV4.

Cammish wins as Webstergets wrong footed

Media release: 23rd August 2015

Porsche Carrera Cup GB points leader Dan Cammish (Redline Racing) notched his ninth win of a remarkable season with another exceptional drive. The 26-year-old, who started second on the grid, made light work of the notoriously challenging 1.3 mile Knockhill circuit to finish two seconds ahead of Samsung SUHD TV Racing team-mates Michael Meadows and James Sutton.

 

Cammish was forced to bide his time in the opening third of the race as pole-sitter Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) got off to a great start. However when the defending champion and Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar span out at the chicane, the Yorkshireman pounced. It was then a case of managing the gap to the two former double champions, Meadows and Sutton, who were embroiled in a battle of their own.

 

“That race was absolutely mega,” Cammish said. “Sometimes you get out the car and you’re happy and other times you get out and you’re ecstatic and this falls under the latter. I thought this would be the hardest circuit for me so to put a disappointing Friday behind me and pull it out of the bag on Saturday and in this race is awesome. I was literally on the edge out there. I was never going to race Josh for the win and would have happily sat in second. Therefore I’m really happy as it’s a great boost for the team.”

 

It was the ninth podium of the season for runner-up Meadows who looked at ease at the wheel of his six-gear rear-engined Porsche, although he was closely matched by the highly experienced James Sutton. There were also strong results for former BTCC driver Stephen Jelley and Brookspeed’s Jayde Kruger who finished in fourth and fifth respectively.

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Redline Racing’s Jordan Witt finished more than six seconds ahead of nearest class rival Mark Cole (Parr Motorsport) with fellow title contender Ignas Gelzinis having to settle for third. Witt was naturally delighted with the result: “It’s definitely massive to get this result. Ignas finished third so to take some points away from him is important. I feel like it’s slowly starting to play into my hands. It was a tricky start with a lot of Pros around me but I just stayed focused on the job in hand.”

 

There were also smiles in the G-Cat Racing camp as Thomas Jennings produced a marvellous display to take his maiden Pro-Am2 victory. It was a hard-fought win with Juta Racing duo Nerijus Dagilis and Tautvydas Barstys applying intense pressure behind. “I’m absolutely delighted with the result,” Jennings stated. “It was really slippery at the start of the race but once I took the lead at the hairpin, I just concentrated on racing my race and letting the Pros through in the smoothest fashion. It was really good race and hopefully the first of many wins.”

Cammish zeros in on title with tenth win of the season

Pole-sitter Dan Cammish (Redline Racing) took a lights-to-flag victory in the second race of the weekend to make it six consecutive Porsche Carrera Cup GB wins. The former Formula Ford champion proved utterly dominant and never looked like relinquishing the lead on the way to extending his overall points lead.

 

His double victory means that he has not finished outside the top two all season and looks to be edging ever closer to a resounding Championship win. Although it is still mathematically possible it seems increasingly unlikely that anyone will be able to catch the 26-year-old, especially if he continues his exceptionally strong run of results.

 

“I was very emotional after that race,” Cammish said. “It was obviously great to win but I felt in control there as I had the speed at any moment to do the job. I probably drove 32 of the fastest laps of my career and I don’t feel like I’ve been the fastest man round this track. It was just quick enough to beat Josh but he pushed me to the end. My heart was beating out my chest coming through those back markers at that speed. It’s so mentally and physically draining!”

 

That said the efforts of Josh Webster, Michael Meadows and James Sutton must be commended as all three showed incredible pace throughout the weekend. Webster looked particularly strong in his Team Parker Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car and proved his mental strength to put Sunday’s first race out of his mind.

 

Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) regained the standings lead in the Pro-Am1 class with his second win of the day. He now has a slender advantage over main rival Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) who could only manage third. They were joined on the podium by Daniel McKay (IN2 Racing) who performed admirably around his home track.

 

“It was quite a hard race out there if I’m honest,” McKay commented. “The heat out there was pretty strong. To finish in second place is a brilliant result, especially after starting the weekend in Pro-Am2. To do it on my home track with special people around me is an incredible feeling. I was just lucky enough to get off to a great start and then I just had to be aware of those around me.”

 

There was also a superb drive from Lithuanian Nerijus Dagilis (Juta Racing) who had to show immense discipline to take the Pro-Am2 spoils. The 41-year-old spent large parts of the race without his immediate rivals around him until both Peter and Thomas Jennings loomed large in his wing mirrors at the chequered flag.

 

 “It was a lonely race for the most part but then I had to really focus at the end,” the Juta racer stated. “I got a good start and held my position before capitalising on some mistakes. I also managed to get off well after the safety car so I can honestly say I don’t feel Iike I made any mistakes and am going away very happy.”
