- Former Scholarship champ returns for another crack at championship honours
- Team boss Tandy says Dan will be an asset to the team
30 January, 2013 – Dan Cammish, the 2009 Formula Ford Scholarship Champion, is to return to the series where he made his single-seater name. Announcing his plans today in Motorsport News, Cammish revealed that he would be joining forces with reigning champion team JTR for his assault on the Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship title.
Leeds-based Cammish, who has been out of the cockpit for several months after a crash, told the newspaper: “I’m delighted with this deal and to be back with JTR. I’ve been out for almost a year because of my back but now I feel fit and healthy and ready to have some fun again.
“I don’t feel like I’m coming back to the same championship I left in 2010 because Formula Ford with wings is a totally different prospect. There’s new turbo engines and aero, so now the car is very different from the Duratec days.
“I know JTR will give me winning machinery so I’m coming back looking for wins straight away and hopefully the title at the end of it.”
JTR boss Nick Tandy added: “Dan is a great, experienced driver. He knows Ford and will be a real asset to the team to help with development.” Cammish joins American Camren Kaminsky on the JTR strength, and the team is planning to run a third car also.
JTR won the Formula Ford crown in 2012, after seven seasons of trying, with Finnish racer Antti Buri.
Cammish, 23, first raced in Formula Ford in 2009, following a successful five-year career in karts. In his maiden season of single-seater racing he claimed 17 class victories in his Kevin Mills Racing Spectrum on the way to the Scholarship title. With JTR in 2010 he claimed third overall in the championship with two race wins.
