Three laps of Snetterton in the 1:49s bracket gave Dan Cammish three more Dunlop MSA British Formula Ford Championship pole positions, propelling him to the £1000 Sky Ford Pole Position Award as the second half of the season begins.

“It’s a real bonus for the team and I’m very pleased to have won it so early in the season,” said Cammish. “It wasn’t exactly a straightforward session: on my out lap I realised there was a control box loose and rattling around in the cockpit and I had to pit to have it secured. That was easily fixed but it cost me a few laps of running. The car felt great and hopefully I can build on this in the races.”

All three of the JTR driver’s laps were faster than the best that his nearest rival, Harrison Scott, could muster. The Falcon Motorsport driver set a best time 1.50.922, compared to Cammish’s fastest of 1:48.778, but while the pole man’s three times to take the top spot of all three races only deviated by two tenths Scott’s three relevant laps were spread over more than half a second.

Despite that he will start on the outside of the front row for all three races with Jayde Kruger and Sam Brabham due to start third and fourth respectively for all three races at the Norfolk track.

Though Cammish’s early problems proved little hindrance to his session there were more serious issues for Andy Richardson who set only one competitive lap time in a session in which he struggled with new engine problems in his Richardson Racing Mygale.
