Lady Luck Finally Favours Dan Cammish

Season changes for Cammish with two podiums

It has been a difficult

start for the double

Brands Hatch GP

winner, Dan Cammish in

the Kwikfit BTCC 2019.

The first two rounds have

earned the Halfords Yuasa

Honda driver few points as

bad luck and frustrations

have dogged his challenge.

Thankfully, the tide turned

at Thruxton from the word

go with a very impressive

qualifying session in which

he briefly held the lap

record only to be pipped in

the dying minutes by Sam

Tordoff.

However, his front row

start was a welcome view

at the start of the 7th

round.

Despite losing second spot

at the start of the race,

to eventual race winner,

Andrew Jordan, the Honda

Civic Type R FK8 dug

in deep and maintained

its third place to the

chequered flag.

Race two saw Cammish on

the charge from the start

and despite challenging for

second on a few occasions,

yet again had to settle

for third But positively

collecting his second

trophy of the day.

The Reverse Grid third

race meant Cammish

started from 9th, two

places behind team mate

Matt Neal but again was

up for the challenge. An

early crash was narrowly

avoided and very soon 6th

place was achieved topping

of a high point scoring day.

“It was a great weekend. I

came here knowing we’d

be strong and with the

intention of coming out as

the highest scorer of the

weekend. It looks I missed

out on that one by a single

point to Andrew Jordan,

but this is probably the

strongest weekend I’ve had

in the British Touring Car

Championship – to come

away with two thirds and

a sixth, to score 41 points,

it’s a mega day.

I’m back into the top 10

in the championship and

I’m fired up to move this

forward. I cannot wait to

come back here in August

and get even higher on the

podium.”
