Dominant Dan Cammish Doubles Up At Donington

1 Mins read

Dan Cammish was again unstoppable in round five of the 2013 Dunlop MSA British Formula Ford Championship at Donington, making it five wins from five races this season.

The JTR driver again made a great start from pole position to lead the field into turn one ahead of Harrison Scott, before continuing where he left off in race one to immediately start edging out an early lead.

Behind Cammish, Nico Maranzana was the biggest loser with a slow getaway that dropped him from second to fourth as Lassi Halminen made a bold move around the outside for third by the time they reached Old Hairpin for the first time, Juan Rosso also making a move on his Jamun Racing team-mate who made a mistake on the second lap of the race and lost further ground.

Halminen then briefly lost out to a charging Fred Martin-dye, who raced up to fourth place in his Sinter before taking too much speed into the final chicane on lap five, clattering over the second kerb and ending up in the tyre barriers.

Cammish had already moved several seconds clear by the halfway stage of the race, but the man that was on the move was Argentine Rosso, chasing down Essex-based Scott for second spot having deprived Halminen earlier in the race.

The two Jamun cars of Rosso and Maranzana made their moves on the penultimate lap of the race, Maranzan passing Halminen for fourth at Craner Curves before Rosso grabbed second from Scott with a late lunge inside the Falcon Motorsport driver at McLeans.

Cammish cruised to victory for his fifth win in five races by 5.6s, Rosso and Scott joining him on the podium meaning Scott once again took Scholarship honours ahead of Maranzana.

Behind Halminen in fifth, George Blundell just got the better of Sam Brabham for sixth, Cameron Kaminsky and James Abbott rounding out the finishers.

Andy Richardson had briefly made his way into the top five but retired with another problem after being passed by Maranzana, the third and final retirement being Luke Williams who pitted the fix a problem, setting fastest lap for a solitary championship point before retiring for good.
