Formula Ford Stars Impress During BTCC Test

1 Mins read

2013 Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain champion Dan Cammish and vice-champion Harrison Scott got behind the wheel of a BTCC car for the first time yesterday (29 October) as part of their prize packages for their 2013 successes.

The two single-seater racers tested an Airwaves Racing Ford Focus NGTC at Snetterton, an opportunity awarded to them by tyre manufacturer Dunlop.

The duo each got a short run in the morning to get a feel for the car, before tackling an extended race simulation in the afternoon, receiving guidance throughout the day from BTCC race-winner Tom Onslow-Cole.

“It was great,” said Cammish. “The Focus felt pretty much as I expected it to. When you first get in, it feels a bit alien: it’s a different environment. But, you do a few laps and start to gain a bit of confidence and you soon realise that it’s just another car and it does what you want it to do. I enjoyed it and it has underlined my belief that a BTCC car is what I want to be racing next year.”

“I thought the Focus would feel a lot different, but I settled in quickly and I didn’t feel alienated by it like I thought I would,” added Scott. “I absolutely loved it, and I haven’t stopped smiling since. Who knows? A touring car career might be in the future for me but I still have some single-seater business to attend to. We’ll have to see.”
