Ammermuller ambles to first title
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.
