Halfords Yuasa Racing’s Dan Cammish will race with the team for at least the next two British Touring Car Championship seasons after signing an extended deal with Team Dynamics.

The Leeds racer has impressed since replacing triple champion Gordon Shedden at the start of 2018, securing a back-to-back victories in the season-ending Brands Hatch meeting to cap off his rookie season.

Cammish’s consistency has been a hallmark of his 2019 campaign – with a total of 12 podiums so far –  as he heads into the season finale well within title contention as he sits 16 points adrift of standings leader Colin Turkington.

Cammish said: “I’m over the moon to be extending my contract with the team, they truly are the most professional outfit on the grid.

“I have to offer my thanks to the whole of Team Dynamics for the support they have given me, particularly my teammate Matt Neal who has been a superb mentor and has given me the confidence and inspiration to do what I do.

“The Honda Civic BTCC Type R FK8 just gets better and better, the more I drive it the more I realise what a truly competent car it is.

“This season I have really got to grips with the way the car works and that has reflected in my results.  I’ll certainly be giving it my all come the final round at Brands to repay the guys for their faith in me.”

Honda UK Managing Director Dave Hodgetts said he was impressed with how quickly Cammish adapted to the British Touring Car Championship, after dominating and winning consecutive titles in the Porsche Carrera Cup in 2015 and 2016.

He said: “Dan was a natural choice for us going forward, continuing the strong pairing with triple champion Matt Neal.

“His talent on track is there for all to see and he has grown into the role over the past two seasons. Coming from a completely different race Championship, and going on to master the highly competitive BTCC in such a short period of time, is testament to not only his driving ability but his character, we are delighted that Dan will be driving for us in both 2020 and 2021.”
