The 2013 Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain will see a new beginning at Silverstone this weekend, as the championship prepares for life after runaway champion Dan Cammish.
The JTR ace has utterly dominated the championship this season so far, extending his 100% winning record to 24 last time out at Rockingham as he wrapped up the title with two meetings to spare.
With Cammish deciding to sit out the remainder of the season, the drivers who’ve spent the season as the supporting cast so far have their chance to grab the spotlight and take the race wins, starting this weekend at the home of British motorsport.
Leading the charge will be Harrison Scott, the Falcon Motorsport ace having consistently been Cammish’s closest challenger over the course of the campaign. The Scholarship class leader currently sits second in the points with thirteen podium finishes to his name, meaning a race win certainly looks on the cards at Silverstone.
At Rockingham however it wasn’t Scott but Jayde Kruger who ran as the best of the rest behind Cammish. The South African has shown front-running pace ever since joining at Oulton Park in June, and fresh from two second places in Corby, the Jamun Racing ace will be confident of taking a first race win on UK tarmac this weekend.
In Cammish’s absence, heading the JTR challenge will be Sam Brabham, the third-generation racer ever-improving throughout the season. Fresh from matching his season’s best finish of second at Rockingham, he’ll be confident of taking a win this weekend.
Fellow JTR racer Camren Kaminsky and Jamun’s Juan Rosso will also hope to be in the mix for the race wins, while Andrew Richardson and James Abbott will both be aiming to put themselves in podium contention.
An outside bet for a podium finish meanwhile will be Chang Wing Chung. The Macanese racer had a mixed car-racing debut weekend at Rockingham, failing to complete a racing lap in the first two races before impressing to take seventh in race three.
One driver to watch meanwhile will be Max Marshall, the 19 year old being given the unenviable task of taking over Cammish’s car. While relatively inexperienced, Marshall has enjoyed some success in Formula Ford, taking three scholarship class wins during a six race spell in late 2011.
