Dan Cammish, third-place finisher in the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain, has scooped an unexpected bonus for his hard work at the wheel – a Formula 3 test.

Cammish will join championship runner-up Scott Malvern at Rockingham next week (18 Nov) for the F3 prize tests, which will take place during Formula Ford’s annual Sampler Day at the Northants circuit. Dan will take the place of champion Scott Pye, who has other commitments in his native Australia.

Malvern and Cammish will drive F3 cars prepared by Motul Team West-Tec, and Dan is delighted with his good fortune: “It’s a bit of a shame for Scott that he can’t do it. I was really surprised – but really happy – to get the call, and now I can’t wait. My Formula Ford season was up and down and to miss out on being in the top two left me gutted, so this is great for me.”

F3 is very much where Cammish wants to be in 2011. “I am talking to a lot of people,” he added, “and getting the right people around me. I don’t think I’ll be racing in Britain, but possibly in the F3 Open or German F3, that sort of area.”

Dan won two rounds of the championship, at Zandvoort and Donington Park, for the JTR team on his way to third overall; he was the Formula Ford Scholarship class champion in 2009 with Kevin Mills Racing.

The Rockingham Sampler Day provides, in addition to the F3 tests, the opportunity for prospective Formula Ford competitors from across Europe to try the different chassis and teams on offer for the coming season. The sampler day is open to all drivers aged 16 and holding an ARDS or a kart licence.
