Spa 2015

Porsche Carrera Cup GB heads to the iconic Spa-Francorchamps to support the World Endurance Championship

The legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit, one of the fastest and most challenging tracks in the world, will play host to rounds three and four of the 2015 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship on 1 - 2 May as the biggest field in the series’ history lines up in Belgium to support the FIA World Endurance Championship.

 

The capacity grid of 30 Type 991 911 GT3 Cup cars will take on the undulating 4.3 mile circuit shortly before the Porsche Team qualifies and races on the hallowed asphalt in the top LMP1 category with the 919 Hybrid. In the cockpit of the #19 Porsche LMP1 car will be Britain’s Nick Tandy, former multiple Carrera Cup GB race winner: further evidence of the strong ties between the national and global levels of the Porsche Motorsport pyramid. 

 

The Porsche Motorsport pyramid represents a career pathway for aspiring professional race drivers. With a broad base underpinned by amateur racing, the Porsche infrastructure can support drivers to move up from Porsche Sport Driving School and Club Sport events and into national Carrera Cup Championships and the international Porsche Supercup with the 911 GT3 Cup. The next step is GT racing, with the 911 RSR, and the pinnacle is the top prototype LMP1 category in the World Endurance Championship.

 

Looking to emulate Tandy’s Carrera Cup GB success and catch the eye of the Porsche factory team is early season front-runner Dan Cammish (Redline Racing). The 26-year-old Yorkshireman confirmed his status as a title contender with two imperious race wins at Brands Hatch Indy. The former British Formula Ford Champion will be looking to extend his points lead but there will be plenty of rivals out to end his winning run.

 

All-time Porsche Carrera Cup GB record race winner Michael Meadows (Samsung Smart UHD TV Racing) joined Cammish on the podium in both races to suggest he will be a major force once again and Championship returnee Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing) clearly feels at one with his 911 GT3 Cup car judging by the impressive pace he displayed throughout the weekend.

 

Another major contender is defending champion and Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) who will be determined to make amends for a drive-through penalty that ruined his first round. Also in contention are Dino Zamparelli (Parr Motorsport) who will be looking to put Brands well and truly behind him and Nicholas Latifi (Samsung Smart UHD TV Racing) who has adapted quickly to the rear-engined 911. Paul Rees (Parr Motorsport) is another driver eager to pick up some strong points.

 

Spaniard Victor Jimenez (IN2 Racing) adds further depth to the Pro category and will be chasing podiums this weekend alongside Championship rookies Jayde Kruger (Brookspeed), Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) and Ryan Cullen (G-Cat Racing) who all performed admirably on debut and look sure to have a strong campaign.

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Juta Racing’s Ignas Gelzinis heads the early points but is bound to experience strong pressure from Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) who brought his 460hp Porsche expertly across the line in sixth in the first round. Experienced Carrera Cup GB campaigners Karl Leonard (Team Parker Racing) and Mark Cole (Parr Motorsport) will also be ones to watch.

 

The Pro-Am2 is just as tight with Francis Galashan (GT Marques), Ian Dockerill (Asset Advantage Race Team) and Paul McKay (IN2 Racing) setting the early season pace. However, John McCullagh (Redline Racing) and Shamus Jennings (G-Cat Racing) are not far behind and produced some great racing that will keep the category front-runners on their toes. Despite a troubled weekend at Brands, Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) will also prove a major challenger.

 

After qualifying on Friday (1 May) at 12.20 (local time), round three of the Carrera Cup GB will start at 16.20 later that day. Round four will be 45 minutes’ duration and start at 12.15 on Saturday (2 May). Highlights of both races will be shown on MotorsTV directly after their live coverage of the WEC race on Saturday evening.

Free Practice One

 

Two-time Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) topped the morning’s timesheets as the 2015 Championship’s season highlight got under way at the world-renowned Spa-Francorchamps. The 27-year-old’s fastest lap was over four tenths quicker than his nearest rival Dan Cammish (Redline Racing) as the capacity grid of 30 Type 991 911 GT3 Cup cars negotiated extremely tricky wet conditions.

 

Meadows, who passes the landmark of one hundred Porsche Carrera Cup GB races this round, jumped to top spot halfway through the session to knock current Championship leader Cammish down the order. “The biggest challenge out there was visibility. When I was driving behind other cars it was really tricky,” said Meadows. “I wouldn’t read too much into the gap this morning because four tenths round here is not that much given the length of the track.”

 

His teammate Nicholas Latifi, who led early proceedings, finished the morning in third and feels comfortable with his set-up. “The car felt great instantly and it was great fun adapting to the conditions,” commented the Canadian. “The main goal was to avoid traffic and get some clean running and we did that which should prove useful for the rest of the week.”

 

Competition in the Pro category was fierce after impressive times from Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing), Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar and defending champion Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) and debutants Ryan Cullen (G-Cat Racing) and Tom Sharp (IDL Racing).

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) picked up where he left off at Brands Hatch displaying superb pace with a fastest lap more than seven tenths quicker than his nearest class competitor Mark Cole (Parr Motorsport).  “I missed the test day here through illness, so today was like a step into the unknown,” stated the 24-year-old. “However, the Michelin tyres are really good in the wet so there was always enough grip out there for me.”

 

Juta Racing’s Nerijus Dagilis set the morning pace in Pro-Am2 with a lap over two seconds faster than welcome returnee Graeme Mundy (IN2 Racing) and Francis Galashan (GT Marques). The 40-year-old Lithuanian seemed immediately at ease with the challenging conditions and track speed.

Free Practice Two


Porsche Carrera Cup GB rookie and former GP3 driver Dino Zamparelli (Parr Motorsport) topped a stop-start afternoon session which was heavily affected by deteriorating weather and interrupted by two red flag stoppages. The 22-year-old was one of the first to leave the pits and as such benefited from the optimum conditions in the session to post his fastest lap.


“I got out early and was really happy with my lap. The car felt good and I’m feeling strong in the car,” the 22-year-old said. “The conditions were a lot worse this afternoon but now we are just focused on translating this into qualifying tomorrow.”

 

Nicholas Latifi (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) and Dan Cammish (Redline Racing) were next quickest but two red flags and heavier rain meant little could be read into the final times. Practice was stopped for seven minutes initially after Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) collided with the barrier before Eau Rouge and then once again after an incident between Mark Cole (Parr Motorsport) and Chris Dockerill (Credit4Cars Motorsport) on entry to Turn 12.

 

Prior to his accident Mark Cole had set the fastest lap in the Pro-Am1 category and in the Pro-Am2 class John McCullagh (Redline Racing) was the pacesetter.

Defending champion Webster grabs double pole during Porsche Carrera Cup GB qualifying at Spa-Francorchamps

Media release: 1st May 2015

Defending champion and Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) displayed stunning pace to take pole position for both races in a gripping qualifying session at the legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit and in doing so banish any lingering frustration from a topsy-turvy opening Championship round at Brands Hatch.

 

The 21-year-old exited the pits late in the session for his final flying laps and strung together some hugely impressive sector times to post a fastest time over two tenths quicker than current Championship leader Dan Cammish (Redline Racing). “I’m really happy that I managed to deliver under pressure and it means a lot to do it for the team as well,” said Webster. “The car felt fantastic and it’s nice to get a couple of points in the Championship too.”

 

Fellow title contenders and early season pacesetters Dan Cammish and Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) make up the top three for both races and will be sure to push Webster all the way. Elsewhere in the Pro category, Dino Zamparelli (Parr Motorsport), Victor Jimenez (IN2 Racing) and Ryan Cullen (G-Cat Racing) also enjoyed a positive qualifying session to put themselves in a great position to capitalise on any mistake.

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Karl Leonard (Team Parker Racing) went fastest late on in the session to start on class pole for both races. “I’m happy enough with how it went out there but in all honesty I wanted to be a bit closer to the Pros like I was at Brands,” commented the experienced Porsche Carrera Cup GB driver. “So, it’s a good result tinged with a little disappointment. I think the optimum position would have been P7 or P8 overall.”

 

Juta Racing’s Ignas Gelzinis and Redline Racing’s Jordan Witt will loom large in Leonard’s wing mirrors throughout the weekend after the trio all qualified within half a second of each other. Further down the field, usual frontrunner Mark Cole will be one to watch as he fights his way from the back of the grid after a mechanical issue forced him to park up at Turn 4 a minute into the session.


Graeme Mundy (IN2 Racing) in his first round of the season was just under five seconds off overall pole to qualify highest for both races in the Pro-Am2 category. Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) also bounced back from an incident in Thursday’s practice to start second in the first race of the weekend.

 

The first Porsche Carrera Cup GB race of the weekend takes place at 16.20 (local time) today lasting 30 minutes and the 2015 Championship’s season highlight will be brought to a close with a 45-minute special race on Saturday which is due to start at 12.15 (local time). Highlights of both races will be shown in a 90-minute special on MotorsTV on Saturday evening at 8pm (UK time) with repeats throughout the following week.

Josh Webster produces commanding drive to win the first Porsche Carrera Cup GB round at Spa-Francorchamps

Media release: 1st May 2015

Source: Porsche Cars GB

 

Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar Josh Webster (Team Parker Racing) produced a faultless drive to convert pole position into a superb win in the opening Championship round at Spa-Francorchamps. The 21-year-old resisted intense pressure from Championship points leader Dan Cammish (Redline Racing) to take the sixth Porsche Carrera Cup GB win of his career.

 

After dominating qualifying earlier in the day, Webster made a great start and maintained his lead into La Source. From then on, he successfully maintained the gap to Cammish who was eager to add to his two wins already this season. “Days like today are incredible but it’s even more special when the entire World Endurance Championship community is watching,” said the defending champion. “I knew it was going to be hard and it proved that way but the team did an incredible job.”

 

Meadows and Cammish were joined on the podium by former GP2 driver Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing) who built on his impressive display at Brands Hatch with another strong haul of points. “To come away with third after a less than ideal qualifying is a great result,” commented the 32-year-old. “Racing is Spa is bit of an unknown for this Championship so I take a very positive feeling away from today and hope for more of the same for tomorrow’s race.” 


For long periods Jelley was fighting with Victor Jimenez (IN2 Racing) and Dino Zamparelli (Parr Motorsport) who both finished just three seconds behind after some great racing. Mention must also go to Championship rookie Tom Sharp (IDL Racing) who was always on the tail of the chasing pack.

 

In a continuation from qualifying, Karl Leonard (Team Parker Racing) proved the man to beat in the Pro-Am1 category after managing to pick off several of the Pro drivers. Jordan Witt (Redline Racing) and Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) also continued their strong run of results finishing in tenth and twelth position respectively.

 

In his first Porsche Carrera Cup GB race Nerijus Dagilis (Juta Racing) took the honours in the Pro-Am2 class finishing just three seconds ahead of rival Paul McKay (IN2 Racing).

“I didn’t know my position until after the race had finished,” stated the delighted Lithuanian, who missed Brands Hatch through illness. “I made a really good start that let me make up a few positions immediately and towards the end it was all about making the tyres last.”

 

The second Porsche Carrera Cup GB race of the weekend takes place at 12.15 tomorrow (local time) and will last 45 minutes, allowing the capacity grid of 30 Type 991 911 GT3 Cup cars more time on the world-renowned circuit. Highlights of both today’s race and Race 2 will be shown in a 90-minute special on MotorsTV on Saturday evening at 8pm (UK time) with repeats throughout the following week.

Dan Cammish pounces to take special victory in dramatic second round at Spa-Francorchamps

Media release: 2nd May 2015

2015 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship frontrunner Dan Cammish pulled an important overtake on fellow title contender Josh Webster to seal a momentous win in the second race of the weekend on the hallowed asphalt of Spa-Francorchamps. The 26-year-old was forced to bide his time as the race was interrupted by a substantial safety car period but when the restart came the Yorkshireman seized his opportunity to clinch a memorable victory in front of the onlooking World Endurance Championship fraternity.

 

Following an incident between Thomas Jennings (G-cat Racing) and Paul McKay (IN2 Racing) at Raidillon on the opening lap, the Safety Car was called and racing was not resumed until 20 minutes into the race. This meant Cammish had to be patient but when the action got back under way, the early season pacesetter made a run down the left of Webster at Les Combes to secure the lead and ultimately the win.

“This is the biggest race of my career,” said the delighted former Formula Ford Champion. “We had to deliver today and we did, so I couldn’t be happier. Yesterday I didn’t have the speed but today was a totally different story. Even though it was really tough when I passed Josh because of the coolant on track, I always believed I could do it.”

 

Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholar and defending champion Webster was happy with the result given the circumstances. “We had set the car up for a full 45-minute race and gambled that there would be no safety car. Overall it was a fantastic weekend and the results that I have achieved are what championship challenges are built on. It’s also great to be recognised as the ‘Driver of the Weekend’.”

 

Two-time Carrera Cup GB champion and record race winner Michael Meadows (Samsung SUHD TV Racing) completed the podium and there was also some great racing by Stephen Jelley (Team Parker Racing), Dino Zamparelli (Parr Motorsport) and Victor Jimenez (IN2 Racing) who all had strong drives around the legendary 4.3 mile circuit.

 

In the Pro-Am1 category, Ignas Gelzinis (Juta Racing) came out on top in a fierce battle with Redline Racing’s Jordan Witt. Witt actually crossed the line three tenths ahead of the Lithuanian but was given a retrospective one second penalty which pushed him back into second. In addition, there was just two seconds between Mark Cole (Parr Motorsport), Jack Falla (Redline Racing) and Karl Leonard (Team Parker Racing) in the chasing pack: another indication of just how tight the class is this year.

 

Graeme Mundy (IN2 Racing) topped a fantastic showing on his return to driving flat-six rear-engined Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars with a fantastic win in the Pro-Am2 category. “It’s great to put yesterday behind me and come out with a win today,” commented the experienced Porsche driver. “I really enjoyed it out there today. In actual fact, I didn’t realise we had lost as much time as we had behind the safety car so I was quite surprised when I saw the chequered flag. It’s an awesome feeling to win but even sweeter when it’s at a track like Spa-Francorchamps.”

 

Iain Dockerill (Asset Advantage Race Team) and Nerijus Dagilis (Juta Racing) rounded off the podium with his Lithuanian teammate Tautvydas Barstys (Juta Racing) and Peter Kyle-Henney (Parr Motorsport) only a few seconds back.

 

Highlights of both yesterday’s and today’s race will be shown in a 90-minute special on MotorsTV this evening at 8pm (UK time) with repeats throughout the following week. The next Porsche Carrera Cup GB races will take place at Oulton Park, Cheshire on the weekend of 6 and 7 June.
