Dan Cammish finished his home-race meeting at Croft last weekend in the way that he started it, claiming another commanding victory in the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain. It was his 15th win on the trot and, with the series now at the half-way stage, the JTR Mygale driver goes into the extended summer break with a 150-point lead over his closest rival, the equivalent of five race victories.
Starting from his 14th pole position of the season (he missed pole honours for the first Croft race on Saturday), Cammish made a perfect getaway to lead Jamun’s Nico Maranzana by two seconds by the end of the opening lap.
The Leeds based JTR driver went on to win by almost 7 seconds from Falcon’s Harrison Scott and Jamun’s Pablo Maranzana and said of his of his record-extending 15th consecutive win: “I got a really good start but then I think Harrison was pegging me for a while. I’ve struggled all weekend to get the final sector of the lap right, and the final corner in particular: I just don’t like it. He seemed always to catch me on that bit but then I had the legs on him around the rest of the lap.” He added that he had plenty with which to occupy himself in the summer pause: “I have all sorts in the pipeline. I’ll be keeping myself fit, keeping motivated and will come back strong after the break.”

The teams and drivers now have six weeks to regroup before the championship returns to action at Snetterton at the beginning of August.
