Eastwood grabs maiden win as Cammish spins Porsche Carrera Cup GB
Dan Cammish ended his title winning season with a 12th victory, breaking Tim Harvey’s record of most wins in a season, as Redline Racing team-mate Charlie Eastwood took his first win in the series.
Pole proved to be crucial on the Brands Grand Prix circuit, with polesitters winning both races.
Eastwood’s win was the most impressive, demonstrating maturity in the opener as he managed a gap over Dan Lloyd across the 17 laps.
“I’ve been getting closer and closer to a win and it’s huge to finally get it,” said Eastwood.
The top two were largely level on pace and created a stalemate, but third placed Dino Zamparelli had to work hard to take the final step on the podium.
Zamparelli quickly passed Cammish to take third, but with Zamparelli struggling with his set-up, he had to defend resolutely from the faster Cammish.
There was respite for the GT Marques driver when Cammish spun under his own steam, but he would soon be dragged back into defending.
Zamparelli created a train of cars behind him before Tom Oliphant tried a late move that narrowly failed to come off.
“That was one of my best ever drives and yet it wasn’t one of my best results,” said Zamparelli.
The GT Marques man went one better in the finale by finishing second ahead of Eastwood as poleman Cammish stormed into the distance to victory.
