“Meanwhile, at the Weekend: Cammish cleans up at Formula Ford opener”
British Formula Ford Championship (Rd 1-3)
Dan Cammish took the opening three rounds of the revitalised British Formula Ford Championship at Brands Hatch. The JTR racer bested Camren Kaminsky, Scott Malvern and Luke Williams respectively, with former champion Malvern closest to knocking Cammish off the top spot in race two, but missing out by 0.424s.
Driving through cramp and incoming sleet, Cammish held Kaminsky at bay in race one, despite the latter suffering a poor start. George Blundell took 3rd and Lassi Halminen to 4th after Williams fell backward due to excessive tyre wear. Malvern was the only retirement due to drive issues.
Malvern returned the favour in race two as he pressed Cammish to the flag, but could not pass the JTR man. Driving for Jamun, Malvern initially passed Williams for 2nd at one-quarter distance, but could progress no further. Malvern’s Argentine teammate Nico Maranzana claimed his first podium. Halminen and Kaminsky were battling for 4th when they clashed with two laps left, while Williams fell out with electrical gremlins, promoting Blundell to 4th and Ben Anderson to 5th.
Cammish made it three-from-three ahead of Williams and Kaminsky, after the latter was passed for 2nd three laps in. With a 2.78s gap to Williams, this run was slightly more comfortable for Cammish, while the 2nd placed man held a 7.0s gap over Kaminsky. Maranzana clashed with Malvern at the start, but both continued with Maranzana taking 4th; Malvern recovered to 8th. Halminen and Anderson closed out the top six.
