Halfords Yuasa Racing’s Dan Cammish he and the Team Dynamics outfit are working together “better than ever” after his recent run of strong form in the British Touring Car Championship.
Cammish, who currently sits fifth in the championship standings with 12 races remaining, said it was a “shame” he couldn’t plant the car in pole position but feels “very positive” after consistently running at the sharp end in recent rounds.
He told TouringCars.Net he feels the squad are finally “starting to find a way” with the FK8 Honda Civic and now the consistent results are following.
“It is very positive, we’re constantly in the mix,” said Cammish. “It’s a shame that I just can’t get my name into the lights, but to qualify where we did with 30 kilos was a hell of an effort.
“We were just seven hundredths off pole, I have no doubt if it was a clean slate and we took the weight out I’d be right there.
“But I’m very happy with what I’m doing, the team is doing a good job. Together we’re working better than ever right now, we’re really starting to find a way with this car.”
With rain falling overnight and into this morning at Hampshire’s Thruxton circuit – but set to brighten up ahead of race one – Cammish feels the tyre management of the front runners will be crucial on the notoriosuly abrasive surface.
“We’re right in the mix again so let’s see what today brings. Obviously we started with a bit of rain but it looks brighter now,” he said.
“It’s going to be tough at the front today. There’s a few people out there who are going to want a strong result, I’m one of them.
“I think everyone is going to have their elbows out from early on really. It’ll be about getting off the line well, getting into a rhythm and seeing what we can do.
“We know how the tyres work around here, some people might have one lap pace but do they have the race pace? It’s usually something we’re pretty strong at so let’s see.”
