Dan Cammish says he is heading to Thruxton with his ‘tail held high’ after topping the recent British Touring Car Championship test session at the venue, with the Honda driver seeking his first podium of the year.
Cammish has had a difficult start to the current season, failing to break into the top ten at the season-opener at Brands Hatch before claiming just one top ten – in the first race – last time out at Donington Park.
The 30-year-old was handed a drive-through penalty in the second race at Donington, putting his weekend results in turmoil and leaving him just 14th overall in the drivers’ standings.
“Donington was another weekend of what could have been,” admitted Cammish. “I had a great car under me, the guys had done an awesome job of getting the Honda Civic FK8 Type R in the sweet spot and I felt I had a good opportunity to challenge for strong points.
“Unfortunately, the drive-through penalty in race two scuppered my plans. Saying that I drove from the back of the grid to finish 13th in race two and then improved again, on the hard-compound tyre, in race three.”
Cammish believes that he has the pace to be at the front at Thruxton – a circuit where Team Dynamics has enjoyed more success than any other since 2010.
“I’m going to Thruxton with my tail held high, after topping the times at the recent test there,” continued Cammish, who scored a podium at the Hampshire venue in race one last year.
“This season is only just beginning for me, and I need to secure a strong points haul to get myself back into contention for the championship title.”
