Harrison Scott has ended Dan Cammish’s domination of the 2013 Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain with a stunning maiden pole position at Croft.
In cloudy, overcast conditions in Yorkshire, a best time of 1m 19.191s gave Scott pole position for the first of the weekend’s three races, ending Cammish’s 100% success rate in qualifying this season.
Cammish, who had taken twelve pole positions and wins out of twelve so far this campaign, went on to secure pole position for races two and three of the weekend, but now faces a real fight in the opener to match Scott Malvern’s record of thirteen consecutive Formula Ford wins in a season.
In a closely fought qualifying session, Scott put his Falcon Motorsport-Mygale on top by just 0.080s, with Cammish joining him on the front-row of the grid for the first race this afternoon. Cammish’s second and third best times place the championship leader at the front for races two and three, with Scott second and third on the grid for those.
Putting in a star performance in the session meanwhile was Formula Ford debutant Sam MacLeod. The Protyre Formula Renault regular, competing at Croft for the first time, took a sixth and two fourths for the three encounters in his Jamun Racing-Mygale.
Fellow Jamun racer Nico Maranzana was the best of the rest behind Scott and Cammish, taking two thirds and a second, with his Argentinian team-mate Juan Rosso lining up fifth for the first two races and seventh for race three.
Andrew Richardson (fourth, sixth and fifth) continued his impressive recent run, while enjoying a strong return to the grid after missing the last rounds at Oulton Park was Lassi Halminen (seventh, seventh, sixth).
Having a session to forget though was Jaydee Kruger (tenth, thirteenth, thirteenth), contact with the tyres at the chicane ending the South African’s session after just three laps, leaving him with an uphill task to repeat his podium success from Oulton Park.
