Cam­mish has last-minute call up to drive Hu­ra­can in Blanc­pain Series

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Reign­ing Porsche Car­rera Cup GB cham­pion Dan Cam­mish is eye­ing more GT out­ings af­ter mak­ing his de­but in the Blanc­pain GT Series En­durance Cup at Sil­ver­stone last week­end.

The 27-year-old re­ceived a last­minute call on Fri­day to drive a Kon­rad Mo­tor­sport Lamborghini Hu­ra­can GT3 along­side Jules Gounon and Christo­pher Zochling af­ter reg­u­lar driver Christo­pher Bruck was un­avail­able due to a clash­ing VLN round in Ger­many.

Cam­mish had pre­vi­ously driven for the team in the Ger­man Car­rera Cup.

Cam­mish started the race and was 26th by the end of his stint – af­ter start­ing 36th – and the trio ended up 24th. “It was dif­fi­cult be­cause I got 15 or 16 laps be­fore qual­i­fy­ing, then four or five in qual­i­fy­ing. Most of my learn­ing was done in the race,” he said. “It was good as I was close to my team-mates’ pace.”

Cam­mish high­lighted the brakes as a ma­jor dif­fer­ence from the Car­rera Cup car he is used to.

“I could go a long way past where I brake in the Car­rera Cup car,” he said. “I’ll have to wait and see if I get any phone calls but hope­fully I can do more. It would be good to get more GT3 ex­pe­ri­ence – that seems the fu­ture for a lot of driv­ers and I think it is for my­self too.”
