PCCGB Silverstone Race Report

29/9/2021

Dan Cammish claimed his 35th Porsche Carrera Cup GB victory at the weekend (September 25/26), closing in on the all-time record while remaining on top of the championship standings after a close battle with his title rival.
 
Knowing he wasn’t in the fastest car on the grid after qualifying fourth, the Duckhams Oils and Porsche Centre Preston backed competitor was in the hunt in the opening race and drove a masterclass of defensive driving to claim the win in race two.
 
Starting fourth for the opening contest of the weekend, Dan started well and got ahead of Kiern Jewiss for third position in a frantic opening few laps. However, he fought back coming out of Copse and regained the place into Maggotts just before the Safety Car was called to recover a car which had spun into the barriers at pit entry.
 
After nine laps behind the Safety Car, the race resumed and it was still a close battle between Dan, Jewiss, Lorcan Hanafin, and Harry King for the top four positions. However, the Safety Car returned just five laps later which then quickly became a red flag as two Am class competitors came together at Luffield, spreading debris and fluid across the circuit, keeping the Yorkshireman in fourth.
 
That fourth became pole for race two when ball number four was drawn from the bag for the partially reversed grid contest and the Redline Racing driver got away from the line well, holding the lead over the first lap. Coming under pressure from title rival Hanafin, Dan showed why he is a two-time champion in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, not putting a wheel wrong throughout the contest.
 
There were a couple of close moments late on as Hanafin managed to draw alongside and make some late breaking attempts into Brooklands, but Dan would not yield, claiming his 35th series victory and leaving Silverstone with a three-point championship advantage with four races left to run.
