BRENTWOOD, England - Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship leader Dan Cammish will make Formula Ford History this weekend if he clinches victory in the first of three races at the Croft circuit in North Yorkshire.
The Leeds driver is one win shy of equalling Scott Malvern’s 2011 record of 13 consecutive Formula Ford race wins but the 25-year-old is putting that out of his mind.
“I don’t really want to think about,” says Cammish. “If I beat it fantastic, if I don’t then I have still had a hell of a run. I didn’t come into Formula Ford to try to break records - I just want to win some races and the championship. We’ll see; you can never predict what will happen on a race day.”
Cammish’s experience of his home circuit is limited to a single race appearance there in 2011. “I like Croft,” he said. “It’s good in sections, fast and flowing; it’s a bit different.”
He arrives at the track with a 133-point advantage over his closest title rival, Jamun’s Nico Maranzana. Both Dan’s and Nico’s 1.6-litre EcoBoost engines were stripped and checked by Ford technicians following the Oulton Park rounds and were found to comply fully with championship technical regulations.
Formula Ford’s Croft weekend gets underway with two test sessions today (Friday) followed by qualifying and two races on Saturday. Sunday afternoon’s race will be televised live on ITV4.
