The UK’s fastest one-make series comes to the renowned Silverstone National Circuit for rounds 13 &14 of its record-breaking 2015 season with 24 911 GT3 Cup cars taking on the 1.6m circuit. All eyes will be firmly fixed on runaway leader Dan Cammish as he finds himself in a strong position to seal the overall championship crown this weekend.

 

The Redline Racing driver’s ninth and tenth wins of the season at Knockhill mean he now boasts a 74-point lead over his nearest rival Michael Meadows. The former Formula Ford champion holds an outstanding 83% win rate and his form is such that only former double champion Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing), Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) and former BTCC driver Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing) can catch him. All three require substantial point swings over the 26-year-old to prevent him from taking the championship at the Northamptonshire track.

 

Cammish has looked the dominant force all year in his 460 hp rear-engined Porsche and the Leeds-based driver is yet to finish off the podium, more realistically leaving the chasing trio locked in an intriguing battle for second.

 

Meadows will certainly be one to look out for, having already clinched four Porsche Carrera Cup GB wins at this track. The former double champion reigned supreme with two wins, two poles and two fastest laps at the historic circuit last year. More of the same would do his chances of finishing runner-up no harm.

 

2015 has seen the introduction of a raft of initiatives including greater links with the wider Porsche Motorsport pyramid, new tyre and testing regulations and the all-new Rookie Class. The latter has thrown up a fascinating battle between Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) and Dino Zamparelli (GT Marques). The duo are separated by just 18 points in the fight for the £50,000 winner’s prize fund: one of the biggest in UK motorsport. With only four races remaining this season, there’s everything to play for.

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) and Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) will resume their season-long tussle. The pair have been neck-and-neck all season and it looks like going right down to the wire. If either could forge a healthy points lead here, it would pile the pressure on their rival for the final round.

 

Things couldn’t be tighter in the Pro-Am2 class either with John McCullagh (Redline Racing) in the box seat and Nerijus Dagilis (Juta Racing) and Iain Dockerill (Asset Advantage Race Team) close behind. McCullagh currently enjoys a six point advantage in the standings but everything could change in this immensely competitive category.

 

There also looks like being a thrilling conclusion to the teams’ championship with Team Parker Racing and Redline Racing firmly in the hunt. It should be a weekend’s racing to savour! 

 

After qualifying on Saturday (26 September) at 14.30, round 13 of the Carrera Cup GB will start at 10.15 on Sunday with round 14 later that day at 15.55 (27 September). Live coverage of Sunday’s action will be broadcast on ITV4.

Free Practice One 

 

Defending champion and Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) topped the morning timings with a stellar lap as the 25-car grid took to the 1.6m Silverstone track. As the first session out on track, Webster was successful in overcoming the initial cold conditions to turn the time screens purple.

 

The 21-year-old finished just over a tenth ahead of nearest rival Michael Meadows (Samsung SHD TV Racing) with the top seven Pro drivers separated by less than four tenths. Amongst the other pacesetters were Dino Zamparelli (GT Marques), Paul Rees (Parr Motorsport) and Tom Sharp (IDL Racing). Runaway points leader Dan Cammish (Redline Racing) came home sixth.

 

Webster was pleased with his start to the day: “This morning’s session went really well and the car feels really good. We made changes throughout the session and just managed to go faster near the end. We were trying out pre-planned strategies and I think they worked pretty well.

 

“I know the Silverstone track well,” the Stowmarket-based driver added. “It’s a great track for the fans because we come round every 50 odd seconds and it’s good for the racing because there are a few opportunities to overtake. All I know now is that qualifying tomorrow is going to be really close - the key is to work hard today and get every little bit we can out of the car.”

 

Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) went fastest in the highly competitive Pro-Am1 category with Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) close behind. The duo who have been neck-and-neck all year were less than two tenths apart, something which should bode well for another exciting weekend’s racing.

 

“I was trying to get used to the track which was a bit stressful at the beginning,” said the Lithuanian. “I know my main rival has been testing here so there is a bit of pressure. In this session, we managed to get on with our programme, but I think there’s lots of thing we can improve on. This is one of my favourite tracks because it’s very safe so you can push yourself and find where the limit is.”

 

The Pro-Am2 class saw Peter Jennings (G-Cat Racing) set the pace with a 57.830. The Irishman tested here during the week and seemed immediately at home behind the wheel of his flat-six rear-engined Porsche. Nerijus Dagilis (Juta Racing) and Thomas Jennings (G-Cat Racing) rounded off the top three.

 

“I’m feeling good after practice,” commented the category’s morning frontrunner Jennings. “The car took a long time to warm up because it was so cold but the times started to improve during the last quarter of the session which was good. Silverstone is a very technical circuit so I was working mainly on trying to break later. It’s all about gaining the confidence to work the front tyres and really push.”

 

FP1 top three


1). Josh Webster               Team Parker Racing                 56.391

2). Michael Meadows        Samsung SUHD TV Racing      56.506

3). Dino Zamparelli            GT Marques                              56.656

 

Free Practice Two

 

In a re-run of the morning session, Team Parker Racing’s Josh Webster finished ahead of Samsung SUHD TV Racing’s Michael Meadows in an action-packed 40-minute practice session. Temperatures increased out on circuit to allow the field to warm their tyres faster and significantly beat the morning’s times.

 

The Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar shaved over a tenth off his FP1 best time to finish two tenths ahead of former double champion Meadows. In2 Racing’s Tom Bradshaw produced a superb display on his first official outing of the season to finish third with IDL Racing’s Tom Sharp and GT Marques’ Dino Zamparelli completing the top five.

 

Meadows, the most successful driver in the Championship’s history around the Northamptonshire track was in buoyant mood after the day’s running: “It was a lot warmer than this morning so the car reacted differently. In fact it was a bit of a step into the unknown because a lot of people had different tyres on. I am quite optimistic about tomorrow but I’m sure it will be really close.”

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Redline Racing’s Jordan Witt came home just four hundredths ahead of Juta Racing’s Ignas Gelzinis. The 24-year-old Nantwich-based driver is feeling ready for qualifying: “I made a few changes to the car, tried out some different lines and began breaking in a few different places. I’m definitely in a good place for qualifying tomorrow which will be crucial. It’s between Ignas and myself and it’s going to be tight but hopefully I can win it.”

 

Juta Racing’s Tautvydas Barstys enjoyed the better track conditions to achieve the fastest time in the Pro-Am 2 category. Peter Jennings also continued to show his impressive pace by posting more encouraging times heading into the weekend. It certainly looks like there is everything to play for.

 

“This afternoon was really hot which was good for the tyres,” Barstys stated. “New tyres make a huge difference here because although you feel like you’re driving a bit slower, you look at the dashboard and you’ve posted a purple sector. I think I’m ready for tomorrow.” 

 

Qualifying starts on Saturday (26 September) at 14.30, with round 13 of the Carrera Cup GB beginning at 10.15 on Sunday and round 14 starting later that day at 15.55 (27 September). Live coverage of Sunday’s action will be broadcast on ITV4.

Meadows bags double Silverstone pole

Media release: 26th September 2015

Former double Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) stole the show during a fiercely competitive qualifying session at Silverstone. The 28-year-old was quickest by just over a tenth for both starting grids and looks in good shape to extend his fabulous record around the Northamptonshire track.

 

The Oxford-born racer may be the most successful driver in the Championship’s history at Silverstone but he won’t have it all his own way: Dino Zamparelli (GT Marques) and Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) carried through their speed from practice yesterday to ensure they will be applying pressure on the pole-sitter.

 

Meadows is well aware it will be a tricky day’s work: “I’m just going to concentrate on my own race because I’m determined to regain that winning feeling. It’s been a while since Oulton Park but I’m feeling good and looking to replicate what we achieved on older tyres yesterday. Today’s qualifying session was all about getting in the right place at the right time because the track obviously got quicker towards the end of the session. It was a good lap that I’m delighted with.” 

 

Zamparelli in particular looks full of confidence heading into Sunday’s races off the back of his best qualifying of the season. “To finish P2 and P3 is a really nice feeling. It’s my first weekend with my new team and a tenth off top is absolutely nothing. I’m feeling really comfortable and that is the main thing for me. We’ve showed today that we can do it and so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens tomorrow.”

 

Champion elect Dan Cammish (Redline Racing) will start the all-important first race of the weekend in fourth as he looks to seal the title. The Yorkshireman needs to maintain or better that position to ensure he will join the talented names to have been crowned Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion.

 

Brookspeed’s Jayde Kruger also looked at ease behind the wheel of his 460 hp Porsche to clinch P5 and P4 and Parr Motorsport’s Paul Rees fastest lap was only three tenths off Meadows’ pole time.

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Lithuanian Ignas Gelzinis made a great start to a crucial weekend in the class title battle. His two poles have given him the advantage over current category leader Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) who will start the races in Pro-Am1 P2 and P4 respectively. Parr Motorsport’s Mark Cole and In2 Racing’s Daniel McKay will also be strong contenders when the racing action kicks off. 

 

“I’m absolutely thrilled to get the two poles,” Gelzinis said. “It’s difficult to say what will happen tomorrow as every race is different but we will try to stay calm because we want to bring our car home in one piece. I’m just concentrating on my car as this has always been a good track for me.”

 

G-Cat Racing’s Peter Jennings took both Pro-Am2 poles to continue his superb form. The 31-year-old’s fastest time was more than half a second faster than closest class rival Nerijus Dagilis (Juta Racing). The Lithuanian starts Race 1 in class P2 and Race 2 in class P3 as he looks to hunt down points leader John McCullagh.     

 

“When I came in for a new set of tyres, I’d dropped to P4 so I really needed to push on,” Jennings stated. “Luckily I got on to the back of one of the faster Pros and followed his lines which makes a massive difference. It showed me better braking and turning points. I’m really pleased with my performance.”

 

Round 13 of the Carrera Cup GB will start at 10.15 tomorrow with round 14 later on at 15.55 (27 September). Live coverage of Sunday’s action will be broadcast on ITV4.

Cammish takes title as Zamparelli wins

Media release: 27th September 2015

 

Source: Porsche Cars GB

 

Redline Racing’s Dan Cammish secured the 2015 Porsche Carrera Cup GB title with his thirteenth top-two finish of the season after a characteristically impressive drive to second place at Silverstone in the first race of the day. The 26-year-old got off to a good start and managed to stay out of trouble to ensure he joins the illustrious names to have taken the Drivers’ Championship crown.

 

With 10 wins to his name, the Yorkshireman has been utterly dominant all season behind the wheel of his 460 hp Porsche and it was only a matter of time before his relentless form made him impossible to catch. The emotion at the end of the race was clear to see as he celebrated the incredible achievement with his engineers, family and sponsors.   

 

“I’ve had some great results all year and knew I was in the hot seat this morning,” Cammish said. “It’s been a long time coming to get over the line and to do it without any dramas is a huge relief. We have consistently been the best car this year and I think if I hadn’t won today I would have been upset.

 

“I was putting on a brave face this morning but my stomach was in knots. I think it was more because I knew how tough the race was going to be. I really don’t think we’ve got a great deal of speed so finishing second around a track that has four corners and two straights is pretty impressive.”

 

It was also an emotional day for race winner Dino Zamparelli who put a tough season behind him to taste the champagne on the top step. The 22-year-old, who was racing with GT Marques for the first time, looked a man full of confidence as he made it past pole-sitter Meadows to take the chequered flag. 

 

“It’s been a tough year and this is the first time we’ve just cracked it completely,” the Clifton-based driver stated. “I just can’t thank the guys at GT Marques enough because they have done me proud and I hope I have done them a favour. I wanted to win so much but it was really hard because there were yellow flags everywhere. Winning is what racers feed off and I knew I had it in me to get the job done today.”

 

Former double champion Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) rounded off the podium with Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) and Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) also scoring strong points. Mention must also go to In2 Racing’s Tom Bradshaw who came home in seventh on his season debut.

 

In the all-important Pro-Am1 title fight, Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) gained crucial points over rival Jordan Witt (Redline Racing). The Lithuanian finished over fiveseconds ahead of In2 Racing’s Daniel McKay with Witt having to settle for third. “I found it really hard because I was blocked on the inside at the beginning,” Gelzinis commented. “Everyone started to pass me and then I had to do quite a bit of defending. I just lowered the pace a little and in the end managed to get the job done. I also secured the fastest Pro-Am1 lap so I’m really happy.”

 

There was also a crucial result in the Pro-Am2 category with Juta Racing’s Nerijus Dagilis taking his third PA2 win of the season to close the gap on title rival John McCullagh (Redline Racing). The Great Smeaton-based driver did however soften the point loss by finishing second ahead of G-Cat Racing’s Peter Jennings in third. 

 

Lithuanian Dagilis was naturally delighted with his performance: “I got off to a very bad start but then managed to regain position. After the leader had spun, I immediately got myself in front and then managed to keep the lead. It’s an important win because now I’m only a few points behind John McCullagh. I feel like I’ve got that momentum heading into the final races.”

Webster wins on the road but penalty tumbles him down the order

One of the most exciting Porsche Carrera Cup GB races in recent memory saw a post-race 11-second penalty to provisional race winner Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) hand Dino Zamparelli (GT Marques) his second win of the day to crown a perfect weekend for the Bristolian.

 

Pole-sitter Michael Meadows, Porsche Carrera Cup GB Josh Webster and Zamparelli were nose-to-tail for long periods before an incident involving race leader Meadows and Webster caused Meadows to spin and drop down the order. That left  Webster to come home first ahead of Zamparelli and 2015 champion Dan Cammish until Webster was demoted in the timesheets for his part in the incident. 

 

Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) therefore picked up his second top-three finish of the season in his battle with Zamparelli for the new-for-2015 £50,000 Rookie Class prize. There was also an impressive performance by Brookspeed’s Jayde Kruger who put the disappointment of the morning race behind him to come back strong and take fifth.  

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Nantwich-based Jordan Witt got his title campaign back on track with his seventh PA1 win of the year. With In2 Racing’s Daniel McKay coming home second and Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) only managing third, all will be decided at the season finale at Brands Hatch. “It was a massive step forward from this morning where I made an awful error,” Witt said. “I felt a lot more relaxed this afternoon. Things were all wrapped before the end which I wasn’t really expecting. I’m really looking forward to the next race as it’s going to be big one.” 

 

Redline Racing’s John McCullagh stole the show in the Pro-Am2 category with a superbly controlled drive. The former rally driver spent large parts of the race in clear track meaning it was more a battle of keeping concentration. The 51-year-old finished well clear of the chasing pack including G-Cat Racing’s Thomas Jennings and Juta Racing’s Nerijus Dagilis who joined him on the podium.      

 

“I’m delighted with the win and the points,” McCullagh stated. “I had a really good weekend so I’m really excited for Brands. My approach all weekend has been to look after the car, not damage the tyres and make sure that we finish. It was just a dream to have lots of space during the race which meant I could measure my pace.”
