Cammish Praises JTR Squad After Another ‘Perfect Weekend’


Cammish Donington 2013

Early runaway Dunlop MSA British Formula Ford Championship leader Dan Cammish declared he and his JTR team are in a good place after two perfect weekends on the bounce following his Donington hat-trick.

The Leeds driver was virtually unstoppable from the moment he arrived at Donington Park, claiming pole position by an alarming 0.790s gap, before cruising to victory in all three races over the two days to continue a perfect record in 2013 so far.

Former Formula Renault racer Cammish seem unfazed by the setback of teething troubles with his JTR machine that halted his testing programme prior the second trio of rounds at the Derby circuit, making it six wins from six races and extending his championship lead to 55 points over closest rival Nico Maranzana.

“Great weekend, perfect weekend really with three poles and three wins”, he told thecheckeredflag.co.uk after his hat-trick.

“Testing was a bit of a nightmare; we had some problems with the car and never turned a lap in testing so I’d not driven since Brands Hatch while some of these guys had been out, but, I still managed to get pole and three wins.

“There’s a lot of things that contributed to the speed out there”, he added as he praised his JTR squad. “It’s not just me, it’s the team and everybody around me that have helped a lot. I’m just in a good place in general really.

“The speed seems to be coming and the car is fantastic; it’s always under me, it doesn’t fade away like some of the other guys’ do and it makes the gap up well.”

Despite his dominant start to the season, Cammish remained calm on his chances of continuing his run of success in 2013, fully aware of the way the motorsport pendulum can swing at any moment during the season.

“That’s the plan!” he added on whether he could continue his winning streak. “I’ve been on the receiving end of good luck and bad luck so I know what can happen. At any moment it can go from being the best day to the worst so you’ve just got to make hey while the sin shines and keep enjoying it while I can.”
