Bumper weekend of Porsche motorsport

It’s a big weekend coming up for motorsport fans, with both the Fuel Protect Porsche Club Championship with Pirelli and Carrera Cup GB taking place.

It’s a big weekend coming up for Porsche motorsport fans, with both the Fuel Protect Porsche Club Championship with Pirelli and Carrera Cup GB taking place.

On Saturday The Fuel Protect Porsche Club Championship with Pirelli runners take on the Snetterton 300 circuit for the first time with the series regulars determined to continue the high standard of racing that has epitomised the 2015 season so far.

Close and exciting lead battles in both the championship classes have resulted in great racing and close finishes – and this weekend’s two races should be no exception.

Spectators are welcome with tickets available on the gate priced at just £14 per person, which includes practice and qualifying for the British GT Championship. More information and a timetable for the day can be found on Snetterton’s website.

Following Saturday’s action, all eyes will be on Knockhill in Scotland for rounds 11 &12 of the Porsche Carerra Cup GB.

Knockhill circuit might only be 1.3 miles long, but it crams a lot of excitement into its myriad of twists and turns.  There is quite a distinct elevation change for the drivers to contend with, too, and when you throw in the famously unpredictable weather, the fearsome Fife track is a thrill to truly master!

Set as it is on the side of picturesque Knockhill, with stunning views down the Firth of Forth, the track is always a good setting to blow away the mid-season cobwebs and crack on with the balance of the Championship title chase.

As the 11 teams contesting this year’s record-breaking Carrera Cup GB arrive in Scotland for rounds 11 & 12, it is Redline Racing’s Dan Cammish (Leeds) who seems set to blow away his challengers once again. The Championship newcomer has set an impressive pace in his first season in the 460 hp 911 GT3 Cup race car, but he has had to push hard to pull ahead.

Live coverage of Sunday’s action will be broadcast on ITV4.
