Determined Cammish targets Brands Hatch finale victories
Daniel Cammish will go into the final two races of the 2016 Porsche Carrera Cup GB season with nothing less than victory as the objective.
The 27-year old secured his second Porsche title in as many years last time out at Silverstone with a superb double win and will be aiming to add to the tally at Brands Hatch.
The 2.4 mile, 9-turn Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit is always a favourite with the drivers and they will all be looking forward to unleashing all 460bhp of their Porsche GT3 Cup cars around it. Last year, Tom Sharp was Dan’s nearest competition, this year he is joined by Porsche Scholar Charlie Eastwood as well as Dino Zamparelli and Stephen Jelley, all of them will be out to prove a point.
Dan matched his impressive 2015 total of 11 victories at Silverstone and will hoping to set a new record for wins in a season in the Nationwide Crash Repair/PPG-backed car. Double Porsche champion and mentor Tim Harvey jointly holds the record with Dan on 11 wins, so one more will see the Yorkshireman set a new benchmark.
“I’m feeling really good,” said Dan. “It's great to go to Brands Hatch as champion. I’ve always gone well there. We’ll be racing for the victory and see how we get on. I think it’s definitely possible to get the tally up to 12 or 13 wins. I really enjoy the track; I think everyone does. It’s a great drivers circuit. We don’t get to use it that often but it’s fast and fun and it’s one of the great tracks of the year. We’re usually pretty quick so we’ll see what comes.”
“To get the championship sewn up at Silverstone was good but we’re going to keep pushing. It’s a pressure off but I want to go for the wins and reward my sponsors for their commitment. I’m very grateful for the opportunity from Nationwide, PPG, Duo and Brown Brothers and Tim Harvey as well. He gave me the opportunity in the first place. I’m incredibly thankful to them all and hopefully we can continue into the future. I’m fired up and looking forward to it.”
