Dan Cammish is the winner of the 2018 Jack Sears Trophy.

The Halfords Yuasa Racing man joins illustrious company with the award given to drivers who up until this season hadn’t scored a podium finish in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

Despite an average weekend, three points scoring finishes at Silverstone gave the rookie a healthy lead in the trophy standings and his nearest rivals are now too far away to usurp him in the final round at Brands Hatch.

Dan’s best was saved for the final race of the day when he moved up the grid from fifteenth to finish eighth. Both Dan and his team-mate Matt Neal stuck together as they worked their way through the field. The protégé learnt well from the master Neal.

DanCam is proud of winning a trophy where the victor has tended to go onto greater things,

“It’s terrific to seal the Jack Sears Trophy in my rookie BTCC season.

“The drivers that have won the title in previous years have gone on to achieve great things so I hope this will be the first of many big BTCC trophies with my name on!

“As for the event overall, it was a tough day at the office but with plenty of positives to take away. I don’t think we did very much wrong this weekend but the small margins of the BTCC around a circuit with only four corners worked against us at the crucial moments.

“Nonetheless, when we get the Civic Type-R into its sweet spot as we did in race three then it shows how competitive we can be, which only makes me more determined to prove it at the final round.”

The Checkered Flag predicted an easy victory for Dan in the Jack Sears Trophy earlier this year in the 2018 BTCC Season Preview. Despite being hounded by many drivers, he has managed to secure it with one round to spare. This will probably be the only prediction made that comes true.
