CAMMISH TO DEFEND HIS PORSCHE TITLE
Series dominator back for second full season
Reigning Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion Dan Cammish will return to the series this year, and plans to also race in the Porsche Supercup.
The 26-year-old will again drive for Redline Racing in the British series after agreeing a deal at the end of last season.
“It was decided at the back end of last year that I would be coming back,” said Cammish. “My sponsors had a great year and thoroughly enjoyed it and felt like they wanted to return. I had the option to go on my own or return with them. As a driver who spent most winters unsure whether I would be racing again it was refreshing to have it decided already.
“I’m still working on a deal to race in the Supercup as well and have got some good options. The plan was to have the British deal done so I could work hard on the Supercup as that’s what I want to do.”
Cammish admits it will be “tough” to repeat last year’s domination of the Carrera Cup, when he took 11 wins.
“I had such a great year and was never off the podium so I don’t know how I can better that,” he said. “But I’m still the same driver and I’ve got to dig deep and find the motivation to do it again.
“The problem for me is that it could be like Josh [Webster] last year [the reigning champion struggled to repeat his success of the previous season]. But I’ve got the same group of people behind me as 2015, the same engineer and mechanic so I’m there to do the best job I can.” ● Rookie champion Tom Sharp will also return to the category with his familyrun IDL Racing team. “Last year went perfectly to plan, but we now go into 2016 with a completely different mindset,” he said.
