Am­mer­muller am­bles to first ti­tle

Autosport (UK) - - RACE CENTRE/REPORTS - EDD STRAW

FOR­MER RED BULL JU­NIOR Michael Am­mer­muller was happy to watch Matt Campbell claim a dou­ble vic­tory in Mex­ico City, as a brace of sec­ond places earned him his first Su­per­cup ti­tle at the sixth at­tempt.

Aus­tralian Porsche ju­nior Campbell took the race one lead from Am­mer­muller’s ti­tle ri­val, De­nis Olsen, on the run to

Turn 1. There­after, he was never threat­ened, with Am­mer­muller pass­ing Olsen into Turn 1 and then spend­ing the rest of the race keep­ing his ri­val be­hind to ex­tend his lead to five points.

While Campbell led the sec­ond race from start to fin­ish from pole, Am­mer­muller held sec­ond off the line from Olsen. Any chance of a battle be­tween the ti­tle con­tenders evap­o­rated on lap three, when Olsen lost touch with Am­mer­muller and set­tled into third. Am­mer­muller had the pace to beat Campbell and had a few looks, but wasn’t will­ing to jeop­ar­dise his ti­tle with a rash at­tack late-on.

Dan Cam­mish was fourth in race one, but re­tired from the sec­ond with dam­age sus­tained af­ter clip­ping the Turn 3 bar­rier in at­tempt­ing to com­plete a pass on Olsen for third.
