Supercup: Olsen Gets Maiden Win At Silverstone
Porsche Junior Dennis Olsen clinched pole position and his maiden Mobil 1 Supercup victory at Silverstone. Round six of the championship saw 32 cars take to the grid in front of more than 130,000 racing fans. Olsen managed a clean start and began building a gap to the pursuing pack. Hot off the back of his podium in Austria, Dylan Pereira started the race in second but was overtaken by Michael Ammermüller, behind Pereira came Dan Cammish.
Cammish was shuffled to seventh in the early stages but almost immediately got back up to sixth before closing on the winner of the previous round, Matt Campbell, to make a move for fifth. After trading places several times on the third lap, Cammish settled into the position and promptly set after Josh Webster. Cammish was on a charge and into Stowe on lap five he dived past Webster for fourth.
The 21-year-old Norwegian’s win sees Olsen chasing Ammermüller in the overall championship standings. Cammish occupies third place. In the Nations League, Germany ranks first ahead of Norway and Great Britain.
Round six of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup will be contested on the Hungaroring 28 to 30 July.
