Old Pitsfordian, Cameron Twynham, gave an impressive performance in his Porsche Supercup debut with MOMO-Megatron-PARTRAX on Saturday 09 and Sunday 10 May after finishing 12th at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
As one of the youngest drivers in the competitive one-make field, 19-year old Cameron ended his weekend on a high by finishing as the highest-placed Porsche newcomer and scoring valuable points in the Spanish Grand Prix support race.
The BRDC Rising Star qualified his 911 GT3 Cup 16th, but a fantastic start in Sunday’s race saw him move up to 11th position before contact with another car pushed him wide and back to where he started. The success of Cameron’s Supercup debut followed only one week after an outstanding showing at the Nurburgring’s Porsche Sports Cup Germany round. “I think it definitely helped boost my confidence going into the first race of the season,” said Cameron. “I knew that the competition would be tougher here in Barcelona but it was still great preparation,” he added.
Despite never having raced at a street circuit, Cameron is looking forward to the challenge ahead and has high hopes of a successful weekend in the Principality. “It’s really cool to be doing my first street race at one of the most famous circuits in the world,” said an eager Cameron. “I know it’s going to be difficult, but I’ve watched enough laps, done my time in the simulator and am looking forward to it!”
Round two of the Porsche Supercup takes place in Monte Carlo on 23 and 24 May, an official support race to the Monaco Grand Prix. Good luck Cameron!
