Who can beat Dan Cam­mish? As soon as last year’s dom­i­na­tor was con­firmed as re­turn­ing to de­fend his Porsche crown, that was the ques­tion ev­ery­one was ask­ing.

The 26-year-old won 11 of the 16 races in 2015 and wrapped up the ti­tle with three to spare. Now with a year of Car­rera Cup ex­pe­ri­ence un­der his belt, he eas­ily goes into this sea­son as the hot favourite. But he’s de­ter­mined not to let that pres­sure af­fect him.

“I will ap­proach it ex­actly the same as I did last year and take each race as it comes,” says Cam­mish, who re­mains with the Red­line team. “I’ve got the added ex­pec­ta­tion this year and I’ve got a bit of a tar­get on my back.

“I don’t re­ally think about that side [the pres­sure]. It would be quite easy to say there’s more pres­sure. Last year I was un­known, while this year I prob­a­bly go in as favourite but there are some good guys in it this year. It will be just as tough if not tougher.”
