Daniel Cammish has taken two wins at Snetterton, the host of rounds nine and ten of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB.
The Redline Racing driver added to the two pole positions secured in Saturday’s half hour qualifying session, with two wins and two fastest laps, giving the Yorkshireman his second clean sweep in as many meetings. The result extends his lead of the championship to 53 points over nearest challenger Josh Webster.
Daniel had a superb start to race one, launching from the standing start grid to get a jump on rival Josh Webster into turn one. His start allowed him to take his racing line into the right-hander whilst Webster was immediately having to defend. From there, he was able to avoid the first lap melee involving Sutton, Jelley and Cullen to pull a two second lead by lap three. Dan then controlled the race, setting the fastest lap on lap seven, before bringing the car home in first place ahead of Webster.
“It was a great race from my point of view,” said Dan. “I got a great start which was helpful as Josh had to defend and I didn’t. The gap on the first couple of laps really grew and then it was a case of controlling it from there really. I knew where Josh was at all times. Towards the end I allowed him to get a bit closer as I took it a bit steady for the last couple of laps and took it over the line.”
Race two got underway at 17:40 with a rolling start. Dan was again able to lead the pack into the first corner with Meadows mounting a challenge on the outside of the second row.
Tom Sharp was Dan’s biggest challenger with the gap remaining close in the opening laps. By mid-distance however Cammish had found his stride and set another fastest lap. He controlled the remainder of the race masterfully in the Nationwide, PPG backed car to win his second race of the weekend.
“I managed to get a good start again,” said Dan. “I don’t think Josh pre-empted it as he dropped away at the start which was great for me. I got to the first turn and realised that someone in the Touring Car race must have taken down the brake marker, which is exactly where we brake so I thought ‘ohh dear, where has that gone?’ I managed to figure it out going on the tyre marks on the track but it took me a little while and I think we pretty much got it sorted out. From there it was just a matter of controlling the gap to Sharpie.”
“We’ve not had a great balanced car since qualifying. I don’t know if it’s the weather, or track evolution but we were chasing it. It took me a while and few laps to work out how to drive it, what I needed to change, what inputs needed to change in order to get the best out of the car. Once I figured it out we seemed to go away which was great.”
“It’s my second weekend on the trot of a clean sweep and third weekend when I’ve won both races of the weekend and we’ve only had five, so it can’t be bad. I’m really happy.“
The championship visits Scotland next for rounds 11 & 12 at Knockhill on 22nd and 23rd August.
