BRENTWOOD, England - Dan Cammish claimed three wins from three starts as the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain season revved into action at Brands Hatch over the Easter weekend.
The Leeds-based JTR driver led from pole position to chequered flag in all three races to take a healthy 27-point lead in the series.
“This is about as good as it gets,” said Cammish. “It’s something I may never experience again in my career; I’ve topped every practice, led every lap. It’s unbelievable really. I thought I had it in me, I was confident, but I didn’t really dare hope it would all go that well. The car was fantastic, and all thanks to JTR for that.”
A bumper crowd packed into Brands Hatch to watch the all-new EcoBoost 200 Formula Ford Cars race for the first time and the fans were treated to plenty of thrills and spills.
Former champ Scott Malvern was one of several cars involved in incidents, tangling with team-mate Nico Maranzara in race three.
“I’m not entirely sure what happened,” said Malvern. “I think one of my team-mates may have been slightly ambitious on the brakes, so that was the end of my race really. Once that happens, you just hope for a safety car or you turn it into a test session and, seeing as we’ve been struggling this week, we thought we’d test and see what we could do. When things like that happen there’s not a lot you can do really.”
Formula Ford returns to action at Donington Park on April 20th.
