Daniel Cammish heads to Knockhill for rounds 11 & 12 of the Porsche Carrera Cup with a healthy 53 point lead over Josh Webster.
The Yorkshireman extended his lead over rival Webster by eleven points at Snetterton taking a clean sweep of two poles, two fastest laps and two wins. It was the second time on the trot he achieved this having accomplished the same feat at Croft.
The track is based outside Dunfirmline, north of Edinburgh and sits on top of a hill with picturesque views of forests and the Firth or Forth bridge in the distance. “It’s a great circuit,” said Dan on the 1.27 mile, eight-turn circuit. “It’s one of the best ones to drive, it’s absolutely fantastic.”
“I think when you are on your own, that’s all well and good but there are going to be quite a few guys out there so it’s going to be hard to get a clear lap. There is going to be a lot of unpredictability for all of us; big, fast cars, difficult circuit, you’ve got to hit the kerbs so getting a clear lap in qualifying will be key to where we line up, it always is, but I think it’s going to be very difficult around there.”
“The last time I race there was Formula Ford in 2013. I had a good result but it was really close that time, I won a lot of races that year but they ran me closer than ever so we’ll see what it’s going to be like in the Porsche.”
“I wanted to go to Knockhill with a healthy lead because it’s a lottery. I hope to be at the front but there is so much that can go up, sideways or left but well see what we can do. I’m confident we can do a good job and if I can get there and come through it still leading the championship we can go on to Silverstone and Brands.”
There will be two 45-minute free practice sessions on Friday at 11:30 and 16:45. This will be followed by a half hour qualifying session on Saturday at 13:50 with two races on Sunday at 9:00 and 15:00. The second race will be broadcast live on ITV4.
