Redline Racing’s Daniel Cammish once again claimed another pair of pole positions for the Porsche Carrera Cup GB races at Knockhill this weekend. He led home teammate Charlie Eastwood, who qualified in second place for both races. GT Marques’ Alessandro Latif will start both races from third on the grid, he struggled to break into the top six positions in the past rounds of the season. Teammate Dino Zamparelli seemed to be lacking pace as he qualified in seventh place for both races after being dominant last time out at Croft. IDL Racing’s Tom Sharp qualified to start both races from fourth place. Redline Racing’s Lewis Plato and Tom Oliphant swap fifth and sixth for the two races, this makes it four Redline cars within the top six cars.
In2Racing’s Euan McKay dominated the Pro-Am1 class qualifying session where he took double pole. His brother and teammate Daniel McKay came home second in class with Parr Motorsport’s Sean Hudspeth starting behind in third for both races. Euan McKay managed to outpace two pro class drivers, Team Parker Racing’s Stephen Jelley and Juta Racing’s Jonas Gelzinis, to claim eighth based on the second best lap times of the session.
Intersport’s Mark Radcliffe qualified on pole position in the Pro-Am2 class for both of the races. Juta’s Tautvydas Barstys qualified second in class for both of the races followed by Parr Motorsport’s Peter Kyle-Henney. The three occupy fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth overall on the grid.
No doubt tomorrow’s races will be entertaining to all spectators as Dino Zamparelli will be fighting to get onto the podium to try and gain as many points as possible whilst Daniel Cammish will be looking to take two more victories around the Scottish circuit. Charlie Eastwood will no doubt be fighting to take the victory whilst also trying not to make any mistakes that could take a podium finish away. A double victory for Cammish will put him closer to taking the title once again in the Pro class whilst Eastwood will be looking to take as many points and podiums as he can to try and take the Rookie championship. Race one will be at 10:15am but will not be shown on ITV, race two will be live on ITV4 at 3:40pm.
