Dan Cammish described claiming his first British Touring Car Championship pole position of the year at Thruxton as an ‘amazing feeling’ after pipping Josh Cook to the top time by just 0.017 seconds.
NAPA Racing UK’s Cammish took his fourth career pole, and his first since September 2020, with the fastest lap in qualifying at the high-speed Hampshire circuit.
It marks a boon to the 33-year-old’s season, as Cammish has struggled with a myriad of issues and pace troubles in the campaign thus far.
The Ford focus driver had qualified in third earlier this year at Thruxton, but went even better on Saturday to beat circuit specialist Cook by the narrowest of margins on his final flying lap.
“Such an amazing feeling – what a buzz,” said Cammish. “Honestly there have been times this year where I’ve forgotten what this feels like.
“Massive credit to the team for always believing in me and knowing it would come good. It’s only part of the job.
“I know that we’ve spent a lot of time making sure we’re in a good place tomorrow too. So, fingers crossed I can deliver some really good results on my side which have been long overdue.”
Race one is scheduled to get underway at 11:45 BST.
