Dan Cammish enjoyed a return to the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship podium at Snetterton as he extended his lead in the Jack Sears Trophy.
Third place in the tricky conditions of the first race was his reward following a measured drive in a car which still seems unsuited to damp conditions. If the squabbling pair of Jack Goff and Ashley Sutton in first and second were to have come unstuck, Dan would have been there to capitalise. However, third wasn’t disappointing at all.
Race two saw him running in the podium positions again. But, a quicker Josh Cook breezed past after a short safety car period and third place was lost as Tom Ingram managed to get him at the line on the final lap. Despite losing out on another podium, Dan regrouped and prepared for the Diamond Double third race.
Dan was to be in a squabble of cars where all the action seemed to focus. Dicing for position multiple times with a number of rivals something had to give sooner or later. Sadly for Dan it was him that had to run off onto the grass and lose a few positions in the process.
Fourteenth was where he finished and he added four points to his title standings due to double points being on offer. His performances this weekend also helped him to extend his lead in the Jack Sears Trophy where he holds a fifty-six point gap over Chris Smiley in second.
“It has been a positive weekend overall and I am especially happy to be back on the BTCC podium.” Reflected Dan after the weekend,
“They were very difficult wet conditions in race one but the Civic Type R felt composed throughout and just served to make the end third place result more satisfying.
“In race two I couldn’t quite hold off Tom (Ingram) in his much lighter car on the run to the line but fourth place is still a very valuable points haul. We had a very fast car in race three, but I was caught up in the tight pack and then made a mistake on a greasy track which dropped me back.
“Nevertheless, the pace has been strong this weekend as a whole, which gives me confidence for the upcoming rounds where I will be going all out for victory.
“Finally, huge congratulations to Matt Neal and the whole team for a brilliant victory in the ‘Diamond Double’ final race!”
