Dan Cammish moved into position to wrap up the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship at Knockhill with another straight forward win from pole position to complete the sweep at Snetterton.

However, while Cammish continued his perfect winning season behind there was drama, largely triggered by the engine of Connor Mills’ Meridian Motorsport entry leaving a line of oil waiting for the start of lap three on the approach to Riches. Cammish and second placed Harrison Scott both safely navigated the fast right hander, but fighting over third place Jayde Kruger and Nico Maranzana both slide wide, resorting to grass tracking their way back to the circuit as they fell to tenth and eighth respectively.

As they scrambled for control Sam Brabham moved up to third and was able to close on Harrison Scott, but the two second margin precluded any fight for position, Brabham simply happy to have a positive end to an up-to- then disastrous weekend at the Norfolk track with retirements in both of the prior races.

Both Maranzana and Kruger had the pace to fight back up the order, though the JTR entry of American Camren Kaminsky proved to be sticking point for both of them.

Maranzana caught fifth placed Kaminsky on the penultimate lap and trying to for a way past spun his way back to tenth – then last, leaving the way for Kruger clear to mount a last lap challenge for the position. Kruger kept fighting all the way to the final corner. An over-ambitious, last ditch attempt the left hander at Murrays pushed his Jamun Racing car over the curb on the inside of the corner and into Kaminsky, who was put out of the race by the impact.

Kruger, meanwhile was able to continue, though he still finished sixth with Andy Richardson having nipped past the scene of the accident to collect fifth with Juan Rosso fourth ahead of the flashpoint.
