The record-breaking 11-team Porsche Carrera Cup GB returns to action after its six-week summer break with a mouth-watering double header at the sublime Snetterton 300 circuit. Rounds 9 & 10 of the scintillating 2015 season will feature 26 Type 991 911 GT3 Cup Cars with both sure to be full of action.

 

It has been all change since the Championship’s last visit to the Norfolk track in August when defending champion, and Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar, Josh Webster visited the top step of the podium in both races. A new-for-2015 Rookie Class, three race categories and greater strength in depth throughout the field have combined to produce arguably the most exciting racing on the British Touring Car Championship support package so far this year.

 

If the Porsche Carrera Cup GB’s previous 24 races there are anything to go by, the combination of long straights and challenging corners will put the talented grid to the test and should produce some close racing. It should be noted that qualifying will also be crucial since four out of the last six races at Snetterton 300 have been won by the pole-sitter.

 

Current points leader Dan Cammish will be looking to extend his winning streak after dominating proceedings at Croft. His back-to-back wins in North Yorkshire mean he has now proved victorious in 75% of races in 2015. This has culminated in a resounding 41 point lead at the top of the overall standings at the halfway point, with the Nationwide-backed Yorkshireman looking in ominous form.

 

Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster and Team Parker Racing teammate Stephen Jelley are providing the major challenge to Cammish’s dominance. The 21-year-old Webster has proved his fighting qualities with a number of impressive displays going toe-to-toe with his older and more experienced competitors at the sharp end, whilst former BTCC driver Jelley has shown great consistency with regular podium finishes.

 

Others to watch out for include former double champion Michael Meadows, who has shown his race-winning ability with a majestic victory at Oulton Park and the rookie trio of Dino Zamparelli, Nicholas Latifi and Tom Sharp. The three talented and exciting drivers are separated by just one point in the fight for the £50,000 rookie prize after adapting seamlessly to six-gear, rear-engined life.

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Juta Racing’s Lithuanian Ignas Gelzinis holds a six-point lead over Boodles-backed Jordan Witt. 24-year-old Gelzinis, brother of former Pro-Am1 class champion Jonas, comes into the event with considerable momentum following a superb round eight drive. Karl Leonard also waits in the wings should either of the two pacesetters slip up.

 

In the tightest class, Redline Racing’s John McCullagh and Asset Advantage Race Team’s Iain Dockerill are involved in a mighty tussle for the Pro-Am2 lead. McCullagh’s perfect weekend at Croft, where he clinched two wins, two poles and both fastest laps, has given him a slender one point lead over his nearest rival. The Lithuanian duo Nerijus Dagilis and Tautvydas Barstys are not far behind either in what promises to be an important weekend.

 

After qualifying on Saturday (8 August) at 14.20, round nine of the Carrera Cup GB will start at 10.45 on Sunday with round 10 later that day at 17.40 (9 August). Live coverage of Sunday’s action will be broadcast on ITV4.

Cammish and Meadows take the top spots at Snetterton

Free Practice One


The six-week summer break came to a close earlier today, as the Porsche Carrera Cup GB roared back into life around the Snetterton 300 circuit for Free Practice 1. Perfect weather conditions greeted the drivers as they ventured out onto the 2.9 mile Norfolk race track.

 

After trading the top spot with his championship title rivals in the early part of the session, it was Redline Racing’s Dan Cammish who made it to the top of the time sheets at the end of FP1. Following on from his double victory at Croft in June, the momentum was clearly with the Yorkshireman. However Michael Meadows (Samsung UHD TV Racing) mounted a strong challenge, improving throughout to eventually finish P2, 0.2 seconds down on Cammish.

 

“Mike’s quick, he’s quick everywhere we go, he’s a real competitor and we will have to see how we both get on, really” said Cammish, as he returned to the garage. “FP2 and qualifying tomorrow are really important, but I’m confident we can be somewhere at the front all weekend. Today is all about getting a good feel for it and tomorrow you take a bit more risk.”

 

Brookspeed’s Jayde Kruger had one of his strongest sessions in the Carrera Cup to date, posting the third quickest time of the morning. The South African has a wealth of experience at Snetterton race circuit, having raced here in junior categories. The 27-year-old was still very much aware of the challenge ahead for the weekend.

 

“That’s the quickest we’ve been in a practice session, but we know it means nothing until we can do it in qualifying. We know we have the pace to be at the front, we just need to keep working at it.” Kruger continues, “Dan’s (Cammish) a long way up the road – he’s definitely not unbeatable so we just need to keep working at it. We’re doing well and hopefully we’ll be on the box this weekend”

 

It was also closely-fought in the Pro-Am 1 class, with Jack Falla edging out team mate and fellow Redline Racing driver, Jordan Witt. The pair were split by less than half a second, with Falla clearly happy with the performance.

 

“I hope I stay in that position for FP2 and qualifying! It’s a challenging circuit which benefits the pros because it’s one you need quite a bit of experience for. It’s the first time I’ve been here so I’m going to take it as it comes, really.”

 

In the Pro-Am2 category, John McCullagh is clearly aiming to increase his points tally this weekend, lapping quickest in both Free Practice sessions. The Redline Racing driver took a double victory at croft in the previous two rounds, with Peter Jennings and Francis Galashan unable to find an answer to his speed.

 

“The car feels great. It’s only my second time ever racing at Snetterton, it’s a great circuit and I’m looking forward to hopefully maintaining the same position throughout FP2 and qualifying.”

 

Free Practice Two


Samsung SUHD TV Racing’s Michael Meadows managed to improve on his time from FP1 to go quickest in FP2 with a 1:52.088. The all-time record holder for Porsche Carrera Cup GB wins took the top spot from Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing), who had been the quickest for the majority of the session.

 

“We’ve been running round on old tyres and whatever we could find in the workshop, so for the car to feel as good as it does means the rest of the weekend should be pretty good” stated Meadows.

 

Defending Carrera Cup Champion and Porsche Scholar, Josh Webster rounded up the top three, closely followed by the current championship points leader, Dan Cammish.

 

Carrera Cup returnee and former double Carrera Cup Champion, James Sutton, also made a strong start to the weekend, taking the fifth fastest time of the day. Sutton will replace Nicholas Latifi in the Samsung UHD TV car for the remainder of the season, and was clearly glad to be back in the series.

 

“It’s great to be back and I’m loving driving these cars” said Sutton. “I wasn’t setting myself any definite goals or targets with this one. I really just wanted to get back in to it and try and enjoy it as much as I could, because at the end of the day that’s what it is all about--- and then to try and improve every single session.”

 

The positions were switched in the Pro-Am 1 class, with Jordan Witt coming out ahead of Jack Falla in FP2 by almost a second. Witt was clearly more pleased with his performance in the second half of the day, getting more comfortable with the car and circuit.

 

“Overall it was pretty good especially as we had a pretty dyer first session” claimed Witt. “The car is now feeling really good, and I feel like we’re on it again, so feeling really positive for tomorrow and qualifying. Fingers crossed it all goes in our favour”

 

Having not run in the first free practice session, Ignas Gelzinis took P3 as he got to grips with the circuit during the session.

 

John McCullagh continued to push at the front of the Pro-Am 2 field, with Galashan improving to take P2. Nerijus Dagilis entered into the top three, as the Lithuanian battled back from the bottom of the time sheet in FP1.

Cammish Sets New Qualifying Lap Record to take Snetterton Pole

Media release: 8th August 2015

 

Source: Porsche Cars GB

 

Dan Cammish, the current championship leader in the UK’s fastest one-make series, will start both of Sunday’s Carrera Cup GB races from pole position. The Yorkshireman, who pilots the No. 27 Redline Racing car, set a Qualifying Lap Record on his way to P1, with a blisteringly quick 1:50.834 time in the final stages of the session. 

 

Reaching speeds in excess of 96 mph in his 460hp rear-engined Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car, Cammish looked at home on the long straights and challenging turns of the Snetterton 300 circuit. “I don’t turn up to set a lap record but it’s nice to have them. I’ve had a couple in the past, but this is probably the best one in such a fast car so I’m very happy”

 

Local favourite and defending Carrera Cup GB Champion, Josh Webster, will start alongside Cammish on the front row in both of Sunday’s 14-lap races. The 21-year-old from Stowmarket took both wins here in 2014 and will be sure to give his all for the home crowd on race day.

 

“I had my first ever car test here at Snetterton, so it’s a circuit that really means something to me. Obviously I had a double win here last year and it’s a circuit I really like.” Webster continued, “I think we’ve got fantastic race pace like last year, so I can push every single lap without backing off and I think it’ll be a really good race tomorrow.”

 

Both Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) and Michael Meadows (Samsung UHD TV Racing) were in the hunt for the P2 spot for much of the 30 minute session, but after a late charge from Webster, ultimately had to settle for P3 and P4 respectively.

 

Just missing out on the two front rows was Carrera Cup returnee and former Double Champion, James Sutton. The London-based driver took fifth place as he got to grips with the new 991 GT3 race car and lines up on row three tomorrow alongside Stephen Jelley (Team Parker), a former double race winner at Snetterton, in 2011.

 

Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) looked to have taken the top spot in the Pro-Am 1 class, until Jordan Witt found some extra speed in the final few minutes of Qualifying.

 

“We struggled a bit on the first set of tyres with the traffic, but then we put our second set on early and we had a bit of space when I got out there” stated the Redline Racing driver. “That thankfully meant I managed to get a bit of a tow from (Stephen) Jelley, which seemed to really help the situation!”    

 

It promises to be a close battle in the Pro-Am 1 class, with only 6 points currently separating Gelzinis and Witt for the top spot. Witt’s Redline Racing team mate, Jack Falla, is also looking in strong form and rounds off the top three starters in the class for race day.

 

The 29-year-old Lithuanian, Tautvydas Barstys, starts round 9 at the head of the Pro-Am 2 class in P13. The long-standing Juta Racing driver posted a lap 0.7 seconds quicker than Peter Jennings (G-Cat Racing). However, Jennings had a quicker second-best lap time in the session, meaning the roles are reversed for Round 10.

Bartstys was clearly happy with the result. “I’m feeling wonderful! It’s my best qualifying result for this season. I really feel confident on this track but I know the fast guys are behind me, like Dockerill and McCullagh, so it’s going to be tough”

 

Round 9 will begin tomorrow at 10.45 and will last 14 laps. Round 10 begins at 17.40 tomorrow with race coverage live on ITV4.

Cammish wins seventh race of the year

Media release: 9th August 2015

It was another commanding display from Dan Cammish, as the Yorkshireman took a lights-to-flag victory in an exciting Race 1 at Snetterton. The Redline Racing driver made a clean getaway off the line, keeping his closest championship rival, Josh Webster, at bay through the first corner before the pair proceeded to pull away from the rest of the field. With clean air ahead, Cammish also notched up a new Race Lap Record for the circuit, posting a 1:52.546 on lap 7, whilst Webster (Team Parker) was left ruing a poor start.

 

“I didn’t have to defend from Josh on the opening lap which makes all the difference when you can drive your line rather than having to defend the gap, and then it was just a case of maintaining it” commented Cammish after the race.

 

However, there was plenty of wheel-to-wheel racing behind the top two to keep the gathered crowds entertained. Ryan Cullen (G-Cat Racing), Stephen Jelley (Team Parker) and Carrera Cup returnee and former Double Champion, James Sutton (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) were all involved in a three-car incident going into the Montreal Hairpin on lap 1. The collision left Sutton with a damaged front end and a DNF for the London-based driver.

 

The three-car incident gave Michael Meadows and Tom Sharp a clear track as they battled for third position and the final place on the podium. Sharp (IDL Racing) made a slight mistake at Williams, sending his 911 GT3 Cup Car sideways as the pair entered the Bentley Straight. Although the 24-year-old was able to recover control of the No. 10 car, the loss of momentum allowed Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) to get alongside and eventually claim the place on the inside at Brundle.

 

Meadows finished in third, but Tom Sharp didn’t make it easy, pressuring Meadows into a mistake on lap 7. The former Double-Champion out-braked himself at the end of the Bentley Straight and had to cut across the grass to recover.

 

“I started fourth, so to come away ahead of where you started is always is the aim” states Meadows. “It was a tough race, I had Sharp all over me for the last half of the race and I had to try not to make any more mistakes. I’m happy with the result in the end, it’s the first one of the day so now we can focus on race 2”

 

Dino Zamparelli (Parr Motorsport) and Jayde Kruger (Brookspeed) had a thrilling duel for sixth place. After multiple attempts to make a pass, Kruger made a last-gasp attempt on the penultimate lap (13), edging past Zamparelli at Nelson. Although Kruger initially succeeded with the pass, the Huddersfield-based driver out-braked himself and span off the circuit, eventually finishing the race in 11th place.

 

Kruger gave his thoughts after the race. “I got traction going into turn 7, and just snuck it up his inside. I was almost done, and we just broke a little late and also a bit too hard on the rear of the car and span round. It was a great race up until then, but I’m still really happy with my race.”

 

The battle for sixth allowed Pro-Am1 driver Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) to catch the pair as he took victory in the class, ahead of Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) and Jack Falla (Redline Racing).

 

Witt was keen to avoid getting involved in the battle ahead. “I was really trying not to catch them (Zamparelli & Kruger) because I didn’t want to get involved in that battle really, but all in all it was good race and went exactly as we planned it.”

 

Peter Jennings (G-Cat Racing) won the Pro-Am 2 class in his best race result of the season so far. The Irishman finished ahead of class point leader John McCullagh (Redline Racing) and Nerijus Dagilis (Juta Racing).

 

“I started in p2 but got good start and jumped the pole sitter. I got a bit of space, and luckily they were all battling behind me so I managed to find some pace and just drove my own race really” said Jennings.

A rolling start in Race 2 saw Redline Racing’s Cammish make another clean and composed getaway at the head of the field. The Yorkshireman achieved a clean sweep of Fastest Laps, Pole Positions and Race Victories, increasing his overall points lead to 53 as the championship heads to Knockhill in two weeks.

 

“The gap stayed quite the same in the second race and then I managed to edge it out towards the end, so I’m very happy and now very much looking forward to Knockhill! I’m in a great team, I have a fast car and I have a nice championship lead.”

 

Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) and Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) completed the podium in second and third places respectively – both drivers making their moves on the Senna Straight at the race start. They ran three abreast into Turn 1 (Riches) as the pair went around Josh Webster (Team Parker) and pushed the Defending Champion back from second and into fourth place.

 

By the end of lap 1, Cammish had already built a 0.5 second lead to control the race. However Sharp and Meadows began to trade fastest lap times as they tried to reduce the gap to the front in a hard-fought battle. Sharp held on to P2 to take his first ever Carrera Cup podium, and was clearly delighted with the achievement. 

 

“It’s been a lot of hard work and I didn’t truthfully expect it to come. It’s a difficult thing to keep hold of one of these Porsche cup cars for half an hour, let alone with a couple of champions behind you. I had to work for it, the car was great and it’s an incredible feeling so we’re in really high spirits for Knockhill, who knows what could happen!”

 

In the chasing pack, James Sutton (Samsung SUHD TV) came back from a Race 1 retirement to finish in fifth place, putting in a solid drive on his Carrera Cup return.

 

Dino Zamparelli had an action packed race in the Parr Motorsport No. 88 car. The 22-year-old from Bristol had been struggling to maximise the performance of his car over the weekend and had to defend early on from Stephen Jelley (Team Parker) as they battled for sixth place. Jelley kept the pressure on as the two drivers went toe-to-toe around the Montreal Hairpin on lap 4, with Jelley emerging in front.

 

Once Jelley had made the pass, Kruger (Brookspeed) also sensed an opportunity to move up the order, reigniting the on-track battle from Race one. The South African driver was able to make the move stick in Race 2, but once again had to wait until the final lap to take seventh position, leaving Zamparelli with eighth.

 

Jordan Witt achieved his second win of the weekend in the Pro-Am1 class. The Redline Racing driver now sits just four points behind Ignas Gelzinis. The Lithuanian had been running third during the race (12th overall), but rescued some points by taking second position from Jack Falla (Redline Racing) on the penultimate lap. “It was all going pretty well and I was able to hold Ignas off for quite some time, but coming under the bridge at Bentley Straight I braked far too late and had a lock up” stated Falla. “From then it was just going backwards.” Falla rejoined the race in third, taking the final place on the Pro-Am1 podium.

 

John McCullagh (Redline Racing) had a sensational race, coming from the back of the grid to take the top spot on the Pro-Am 2 podium. “It was a difficult place to start and I had to be very careful, there were a few incidents on the way round and we had to make sure we stayed out of mischief” McCullagh said, after the race. “Points on the day are absolutely critical and bringing the car home in one piece was absolutely essential, to be able to do it ahead of the class is really fantastic, especially after a tough qualifying. Two podiums, one in second and one in first place, I couldn’t ask for more!”

 

Iain Dockerill (Credit4Cars) and Nerijus Dagilis (Juta Racing) completed the Pro-Am2 podium in second and third positions.
