28/08/2014 Season of transition for Cammish

Dan Cammish joined the 2014 Avon Tyres British GT Championship as the Formula Ford champion, and after his first season in sportscar racing, he hopes for a return to British GT in 2015.

 

While the transition from single seaters gave Cammish a steep learning curve, the driver has enjoyed his first season in British GT alongside Barrie Baxter in the #44 Team Parker Racing Porsche 911 GT4.

 

“I have certainly enjoyed my debut GT campaign thus far,” said the Porsche driver. “It has been a learning curve for myself and my team-mate Barrie Baxter but we have shown strong pace throughout. I am certainly hopeful to remain in British GT in 2015.”

 

Cammish’s first season has been aided by the strengths of the Porsche, with the British driver praising its reliability.

 

“The 911 is a great car,” said Cammish. “So far it has been mechanically faultless which is testament to not only Porsche, but also the great team I have behind me in Team Parker Racing. They have been fantastic all year long and I can’t thank them enough for their hard work.”

 

While reliability has never been an issue for the Team Parker duo, the competitive nature of the GT4 has given the pair a strong challenge throughout the campaign.

 

I think the Porsche holds its own very well,” the racer said. “It has pro’s and con’s like any car but overall it has been very competitive. We have been fairly strong everywhere I think. Snetterton was good for us as was Rockingham.”

 

Now though, the focus turns to the remaining two races of the season, Brands Hatch and Donington Park, with Cammish quick to praise this weekend’s venue.

 

“I really like Brands Hatch in general,” said the Brit. “Both the Indy and the GP circuits bring unique challenges. The GP circuit for me has to be one of the best driver’s tracks in the Country. It’s a track where a driver can really make a difference.”

 

While one eye is on this weekend’s race, the other is firmly fixed on ending the season strongly and securing his place for 2015.

 

I hope to finish the season strongly,” said Cammish. “I think a podium is too much to ask but I always aim for a top six finish. I will be pushing for nothing less than pole in the Pro group though and I look forward to the challenge. The biggest challenge starts after Donington however if I wish to remain on the British GT grid in 2015.”
