Cammish Completes Croft Treble For Fantastic Fifteen

2 Mins read

Dan Cammish has completed a perfect first half to the 2013 Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain with his fifteen consecutive victory in the series.

The JTR ace completed his hat-trick at Croft with a characteristically dominant victory, the championship leader leading from lights to flag to extend his advantage in the standings to 150 points.

A typically fantastic getaway from the line saw pole-sitter Cammish lead into Clervaux for the first time, with Nico Maranzana maintaining second off the line ahead of Harrison Scott, while a fantastic start for Andrew Richardson saw him take fourth ahead of Sam MacLeod.

As Cammish broke clear from the off, Maranzana lost second at Clervaux on lap two, a mistake from the Argentinian seeing him run wide, allowing Scott to nip through. As they battled for second, a four-car train developed behind Richardson for fourth.

MacLeod, making his debut in the series this weekend, took the place at the Complex on lap three, with Richardson running wide onto the grass in the process. This lost him another place to Lassi Halminen, with his misery compounded five laps later as Juan Rosso found his way past, Richardson dropping to seventh.

MacLeod meanwhile began to close on his team-mate Maranaza for third, however the Formula Renault regular pushed too hard, with a mistake on lap six at the Complex allowing Halminen through. An error for the Finn five laps later gave the place back though, with the Falcon Motorsport driver going on to retire a couple of laps from the end.

Having no such drama was Cammish, a comfortable run to the flag seeing him take the win by 6.7 seconds from Scholarship class winner Scott. Maranzana completed a podium hat-trick for the weekend in third, with his Jamun Racing team-mates MacLeod and Rosso following his across the line.

In similar style to race two, Jayde Kruger enjoyed a storming drive through the field. After a great battle with James Abbott early on, the South African passed Camren Kaminsky and series debutant Wei Fung Thong in the middle stages, before grabbing a top six finish from Richardson on the penultimate lap.

Richardson, Thong and Kaminsky were next to cross the line, with Abbott just losing tenth to Sam Brabham in a dead-heat at the flag. Joining Halminen in retirement meanwhile was Rob Shield, the series newcomer seeing his race end in the barriers on the opening lap.
