Fresh from supporting the Porsche factory works team in the World Endurance Championship at Spa-Francorchamps, the rejuvenated Porsche Carrera Cup GB returns to the BTCC support package at the challenging Oulton Park circuit. Taking place on 6 – 7 June, the Cheshire circuit will play host to rounds 5 & 6 of the Championship.

 

After a one-year break from the Championship calendar, it will be a true spectacle as the record 11-team grid takes on the 2.2 mile Island circuit, widely regarded as one of the country’s most demanding for car and driver. The talented field will have to have their wits about them to master the track’s blind crests and natural undulations. 

 

The 21 previous Porsche Carrera Cup GB races at the renowned Cheshire venue have produced some of the most exciting on-track action in the Championship’s history and this year looks like it will be no exception thanks to the strength in depth in each of the categories.

 

Early season front-runner, Dan Cammish, will be wishing for more success following his hugely impressive start to the season, which has seen him clinch victory at three of the four races thus far. The Nationwide-backed Redline Racing driver sent out ominous signals with his pace in the second race in Belgium as he extended his points advantage to 14. The 26-year-old has adapted seamlessly to sportscar racing and although the season has not yet reached the halfway point, Cammish seems the man to beat.

 

He won’t have it all his own way though with multiple race winner Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing) and Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster hoping to eat into his lead. Defending champion Webster was crowned ‘Driver of the Weekend’ after securing double pole position and a lights-to-flag victory in the opening race at Spa, meaning he comes into the weekend full of confidence.

 

Former double champion Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) will be another driver to watch, having won the last three Porsche Carrera Cup GB races at Oulton Park. The Oxford-born racer has started on pole for each of those victories and should be firmly in the mix throughout the weekend. His teammate Nicholas Latifi will also be looking to continue his run of strong performances and make up ground on the pace setters.

 

Championship returnees Paul Rees (Parr Motorsport) and Victor Jimenez (IN2 Racing) will be after a strong weekend to move up the points table and rookies Dino Zamparelli (Parr Motorsport), Jayde Krugar (Brookspeed) and Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) will be looking to build on their positive early-season showings.

 

Things are as tight in the Pro-Am1 category with Nantwich-based Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) and Team Parker Racing’s Karl Leonard in hot pursuit of class leader Ignas Gelzinis. The Lithuanian’s lead stands at nine points thanks to his category win in the final race in Belgium but things could all change in Cheshire. Redline Racing’s Jack Falla and Parr Motorsport’s Mark Cole are not far behind either and could force their way into the mix at the top of the standings.

 

Small margins also separate the main contenders in the Pro-Am2 class. Iain Dockerill (Asset Advantage Race Team) currently sits top of the pile by three points from Stokesley-based John McCullagh and there are only ten points back to Francis Galashan (GT Marques), Nerijus Dagilis (Juta Racing) and Tautvydas Barstys (Juta Racing) in joint fifth. One good result could propel them up the standings.

 

After qualifying on Saturday (6 June) at 12.05, round five of the Carrera Cup GB will start at 17.10 later that day. Round four will commence at 16.15 on Sunday (7 June) and will be broadcast live on ITV4.

Meadows tops free practice at Oulton Park

Free Practice One

The most successful driver in the Championship’s history at Oulton Park, Michael Meadows, continued his rich vein of form at the demanding Cheshire track. The 27-year-old went quickest in a red-flag interrupted morning practice session and looked immediately at ease with the circuit’s undulations and blind crests, eventually finishing the session just over two tenths faster than nearest challenger, Dan Cammish.

 

The 2012 and 2013 Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion, who won both races the last time the Championship visited the 2.2 mile circuit in 2013, always looked to have the upper hand on the chasing pack, even in greasy early-morning conditions. As the times tumbled towards the end of the session, nobody could find an answer to the Oxford-born racer’s natural speed at the venue.

 

 

“This was exactly what we needed because it’s important to get off to a positive start here,” Meadows said. “My car had a brand new shell and I was fortunate that it felt good straight away. Conditions out there were difficult because it was quite slippery but they gradually improved throughout the morning. On the set-up front, we didn’t make too many changes as it was more about me getting used to the track again.”

 

Redline Racing’s Dan Cammish lead the chasing pack which also contained Parr Motorsport’s Dino Zamparelli, Samsung SUHD TV Racing’s Nicholas Latifi and IDL Racing’s Tom Sharp. The top five were separated by less than half a second, an indication that we should be in for some more thrilling wheel-to-wheel racing this weekend in the Pro category.

 

Pro-Am 1 class leader Ignas Gelzinis carried on where he left off in Spa as he topped the morning timesheets ahead of Nantwich-based Jordan Witt and Team Parker Racing’s Karl Leonard. The 24-year-old Lithuanian was pleased with his morning’s work but was well aware of the challenges the track poses.

 

“This circuit is very bumpy in several places which makes it difficult to push at full throttle,” the Juta Racing driver commented. “That said I’m very happy that I found the time in the car and myself and most importantly I know there is a lot to improve on. I’m just hoping I can continue like this and find some more time out there.”

 

In the Pro-Am2 category, Parr Motorsport’s Peter Kyle-Henney adapted best to the slippery surface posting a highly impressive 1:25.328 which placed him ahead of several Pro-Am1 drivers and over a second ahead of rivals Scott Marshall (GT Marques) and Graham Mundy (IN2 Racing).

Free Practice Two

Samsung SUHD TV Racing’s Michael Meadows’ strong form continued after the lunch break with another blistering lap to leave the rest of the talent-packed field in his wake. The all-time record holder for Porsche Carrera Cup GB wins looks in ominous form ahead of tomorrow morning’s qualifying session.

 

Current Championship points leader Dan Cammish (Redline Racing) pushed Meadows all the way once again to finish second fastest. “I’m fairly happy with how today went,” said the Yorkshireman. “I feel like there’s a bit of work to do on the data but overall I’m feeling positive. Michael’s had that gap all day but there’s a nice gap behind me too. It’s my job to topple Michael tomorrow and I’ll be doing my upmost.”

 

Also set for a strong qualifying are Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster and Parr Motorsport’s Paul Rees who both put in solid times to suggest they will be fighting for the top spots in the sessions that matter. Championship rookies Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) and Dino Zamparelli (Parr Motorsport) will be ones to watch as well, having backed up their strong morning showings with more of the same in the afternoon.

 

Nantwich-based Jordan Witt set the pace in the Pro-Am1 category with a superb lap seven tenths quicker than nearest rival Karl Leonard (Team Parker Racing). Mark Cole (Parr Motorsport) and Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) were not far behind either as they prepared for what is bound to be an immensely tight class qualifying.

 

In the Pro-Am2 category, John McCullagh narrowly posted the fastest time of the session with Peter Kyle Henney and Graham Mundy less than a tenth behind. “It’s good to finish top in class, especially since it was a mixed session for me. I started off well but endured a difficult middle part thanks to a spin. My time should definitely stand us in good stead for quali.”

Cammish and Meadows bag pole positions at Oulton Park

 

Media release: 6th June 2015

 

Source: Porsche Cars GB

 

Form from yesterday’s practice carried through to an action-packed Porsche Carrera Cup GB qualifying as current 2015 Championship points leader Dan Cammish and former double champion Michael Meadows shared the spoils around a sun-drenched Oulton Park Island Circuit.

 

Redline Racing’s Dan Cammish set the fastest time of the session by over two tenths to land pole position for this afternoon’s race. The chasing pack, which included Samsung SUHD TV Racing’s Nicholas Latifi, Team Parker Racing’s Stephen Jelley and Michael Meadows, were separated by just a few hundredths.

 

Cammish, however, was left feeling frustrated after losing out on a double pole to Michael Meadows who managed to produce a cleaner second-fastest lap. “I’m really happy to be on pole for later,” the 26-year-old Yorkshireman said. “That said I know just how much I left out there. We shouldn’t have bothered going out again as the speed we have in this race car meant I was catching the Pro-Am 1 and Pro-Am2 drivers so quickly.

“There’s not much too much I could have done but that doesn’t make you feel any better,” Cammish added. “It’s just so difficult to overtake around here which is why pole position is of paramount importance. I’ll just have to go out and push to the absolute limit and see how it all pans out.”

 

Nicholas Latifi backed up his front row starting grid position for today’s race with a hugely impressive starting slot of third for tomorrow’s round. The Canadian will be one to watch as he looks to secure big points and mount a Championship challenge. Stephen Jelley will also be a contender after ensuring he will be fighting at the front in both races.

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Karl Leonard produced an exceptional display to cross the line over half a second quicker than category rivals Jordan Witt and Ignas Gelzinis. “I’m absolutely delighted and looking forward to the races immensely,” the Irishman stated. “I came in, bolted on a new set of tyres and drove the wheels off it. It was a mega lap and I actually dropped a couple of tenths at the end.

 

“I was sniffing around Meadows and Cammish and that is down to the great work by Team Parker who have made a few changes to the car. It felt absolutely fantastic and I’ll be going for the win and mixing it at the sharp end.”

 

Things were predictably tight in the Pro-Am2 class with small margins making the difference between the early-season pacesetters. John McCullagh clinched pole for the first round of the weekend while Peter Kyle-Henney will start first in class for Sunday’s race. If the qualifying times are anything to go by, the race will be full of nail-biting action.

Coming soonLights to flag victory for championship leader Cammish in Oulton Park opener

 

Media release: 6th June 2015

Current Porsche Carrera Cup GB pacesetter Dan Cammish stamped his authority on the 2015 Championship once again with a faultless drive to take his fourth win of the season during the first race of the weekend at Oulton Park. The 26-year-old, who started from pole, seamlessly negotiated a tricky safety car restart to take the chequered flag and pick up more points on his nearest rivals.

 

Cammish had forged a healthy lead when the safety car was deployed at the race midpoint and despite that advantage being wiped away, the Yorkshireman never looked like relinquishing top spot despite intense pressure from Nicholas Latifi in the final stages.

 

The Canadian, who finished just over three tenths behind Cammish, enjoyed the best result of his season after a thrilling tussle with Stephen Jelley. “I got a decent start but misjudged the first corner which meant Jelley passed me,” the Samsung SUHD TV Racing driver said. “I felt comfortable with the car straight away and had it not been for that first corner I think I would have pushed Cammish harder. I enjoyed a clean fight with Jelley though and to be fair to him, he always left me enough room. I want to keep this momentum and get back on the podium. I should be able to do so with another strong starting spot tomorrow.”

 

Team Parker Racing’s Stephen Jelley rounded off the podium to bring home another strong haul of points and keep him well and truly in the Championship hunt. The 32-year-old led home a fiercely competitive pack of drivers including Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster, Championship rookies Tom Sharp and Dino Zamparelli and the experienced Porsche racer Victor Jimenez.

 

Nantwich-based Jordan Witt took another class win in the Pro-Am1 category with an extremely controlled and patient drive. The Redline Racing driver capitalised on rival Karl Leonard’s misfortune after an incident on the final lap dashed his hopes of clinching a top five finish overall. “I always had a feeling things might be tricky for Karl so I wanted to be there to pick up the pieces,” the 24-year-old commented. “A win is a win so I’m really happy with it. I just relaxed, got into my own rhythm and watched it all unfold in front of me.”

 

In the Pro-Am2 class, GT Marques’ Scott Marshall took the win from Redline Racing’s John McCullagh and Asset Advantage Race Team’s Iain Dockerill. “It was absolutely awesome out there, it’s just a shame I didn’t get P1 in quali because I could have kept with the group in front and maybe made up a few more places,” the 44-year-old stated. “I’m starting P3 tomorrow, so hopefully it will be another win and I can take them on the start.”

Michael Meadows hold off rival Dan Cammish to take victory in action packed second Oulton Park race

Former double champion Michael Meadows produced a fantastic display to keep current Championship leader Dan Cammish at bay and clinch his first win of the 2015 season in the second race of the weekend at Oulton Park. The Samsung SUHD TV Racing driver had Cammish looming large in his mirrors for the duration of the race but held on to take his fourth Porsche Carrera Cup GB win around the undulating Cheshire track.

 

The Oxford-born racer, who started on pole, made a good getaway and spent the entire race being pushed to the absolute limit by a marauding Cammish behind. The pair battled nose-to-tail and were separated by just over three tenths at the finish line. The win means that the driver on pole has now won the last six Carrera Cup GB races, underlining the importance of top spot in qualifying around the tight 2.2-mile Island Circuit.

 

“That was the first opportunity I’ve had to go toe-to-toe with Dan and it was awesome fun,” Meadows said. “We’re obviously teammates and learn a lot from each other throughout the weekend. We were both pushing the whole time and we knew we wanted to build as big a gap to the rest of the field as possible. In terms of the Championship, I didn’t gain too much on Dan but you can’t help but enjoy fights like that where you are both on the limit.”

 

Cammish extends his lead at the top of the points standings to 27 after his closest title rivals Josh Webster and Stephen Jelley finished in third and sixth respectively. Jelley was on for a higher finish but went off in a tussle with Parr Motorsport’s Dino Zamparelli. Samsung SUHD TV Racing’s Nicholas Latifi was another who lost a solid haul of points after he suffered a puncture to his front-right tyre, which dropped him down to sixteenth. Their misfortune was Tom Sharp’s gain as he came home impressively in fourth.

 

In the Pro-Am1 class, Karl Leonard put yesterday’s disappointment behind him with a well-deserved category win. The Irishman, who showed impressive pace throughout the weekend, was mixing it with the Pros once again. “The race pace was really good,” Leonard stated. “I knew I was miles ahead in my class so I just controlled my driving and made sure that I didn’t do anything silly. The weekend has been absolutely brilliant for me.”

 

Redline Racing’s Jordan Witt secured the coveted ‘Driver of the Weekend’ accolade after backing up his class win yesterday with another podium. The 24-year-old has demonstrated consistent speed over the first three 2015 Championship rounds and looks set to be a strong contender for the class title.

 

IN2 Racing’s Graham Mundy took the Pro-Am2 spoils after forging a sizeable gap to runner-up Iain Dockerill and Juta Racing’s Nerijus Dagilis. “I was so determined to get a good start because I felt a little bit boxed in yesterday and fortunately I managed to do so,” the Salisbury-based driver commented. “I got in with a group of Pro-Am1 drivers who I followed. It was actually quite a lonely race as it didn’t really feel like I was in amongst anybody. It was all about patience and concentration and I was actually telling myself in the cockpit to stay calm.”

 

The next Porsche Carrera Cup GB races will take place at Croft, Yorkshire on the weekend of 27 and 28 June. In the meantime, be sure not to miss a thing by following us at @CarreraCupGB on Twitter and visiting www.porsche.co.uk/CarreraCupGB.
