After a six-week summer break, the 2013 Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain returns to action at Snetterton this weekend with championship leader Dan Cammish ready to add to the successes he’s already achieved this campaign.
The 24 year old racer took an incredible fifteen race wins in fifteen races over the course of the opening half of the season, a new modern-era Formula Ford record for consecutive race victories, to give himself a mammoth 150 point championship lead heading into the final five weekends.
As well as looking to further extend his advantage at the top of the standings this weekend, the JTR ace could also wrap up the Sky Ford Pole Position Cup, with his fourteen poles already this campaign meaning he needs to take just two more to secure the £1,000 prize. Cammish could also match 2011 champion Scott Malvern’s record of eighteen wins in a single season if he were to secure another hat-trick in Norfolk.
The chasing pack will be looking to end Cammish’s dominance at the front of the field though, with Harrison Scott his closest competitor heading into the summer interlude. The Falcon Motorsport driver took a first pole position last time out at Croft and is the only driver other than Cammish to have a led a race lap this season, and the 17 year old now has a maiden win firmly in his sights.
Jamun Racing trio Nico Maranzana, Juan Rosso and Jayde Kruger will also hope to be in the podium mix over the weekend, as will Cammish’s JTR team-mates Camren Kaminsky and Sam Brabham, while looking for a return to form after a tough end to the opening half of the campaign will be Andrew Richardson.
The grid at Snetterton will be boosted by two new faces. As previously reported on TheCheckeredFlag.co.uk, Connor Mills will make his Formula Ford debut after switching across from the Ginetta Junior series with Meridian Motorsport, while also making his Ford bow will be Zaid Ashkanani, the Kuwaiti 19 year old making his single-seater debut in the SWB Motorsport-Sinter.
