Halfords Yuasa Racing has recruited two-time Porsche Carrera Cup GB Champion Dan Cammish to pilot its second Honda Civic Type R alongside Matt Neal in the 2018 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
Cammish arrives at the team with a fine pedigree in the sport and several seasons on the BTCC support package under his belt. The Yorkshireman was the architect of an astonishing campaign in British Formula Ford in 2013 – winning all 24 races he entered to wrap the title up with two meetings to go – before clinching back-to-back crowns in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB in 2015 and 2016.
Cammish spent last year contesting both the PCCGB and the pan-European Porsche Supercup. He finished third in the domestic championship – despite missing two races mid-season – as he triumphed eight times from 13 starts, more than any of his rivals in a campaign highlighted by a stunning victory at Le Mans following a frenetic final lap four-way scrap for supremacy.
The 28-year-old added to that with fourth in the fiercely-disputed international series, with three podium finishes to his credit, including an amazing 2nd place on his debut in Monaco and he will now replace Gordon Shedden at Honda’s factory BTCC team Halfords Yuasa Racing, following the Scot’s announcement last month that he will be leaving the championship.
