Double delight for George Gamble as he clocks back-to-back wins in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship at Silverstone
George Gamble says he is over the moon after taking top spot in back-to-back races at Silverstone.
The Epperstone race ace boosted his chances of finishing among the top three in the penultimate round of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Championship.
The 23-year-old Amigos Redline racer left Silverstone elated with his success, which was one of his best racing weekends of his short career.
As well as the race wins, he earned fastest lap on both days, took home best driver of the weekend, and was the first driver in the prestige racing trial to take two first places.
“I don’t know where it came from,” said Gamble. “I’m over the moon.”
A partial reverse grid for the second race of the day saw Gamble in sixth place and third row on the grid, again on the inside line.
Gamble said he put everything he had into the race, and despite tricky conditions, he had made up three places by the end of lap one.
From then onwards he had a clear view to keep his cool.
He pulled away from the field for the remaining 27 laps, which saw him take the flag again with a margin of 1.778 seconds ahead of last year’s Pro Porsche GB champion Tio Ellinas.
“It’s a one-point gap in the championship for second place, so it will be close at the last round,” Gamble said.
“A couple of fastest laps this weekend has helped me.
“If we can have another couple of wins it would be magic.”
Gamble leaves Silverstone circuit in second with 95 points, with one point separating him from Josh Webster on 94.
Amigos Redline racing remain third in the championship with 317 points.
