Dan Cammish is looking forward to this weekend’s British Touring Car Championship races at Snetterton, with the NAPA Racing UK driver hoping previous strong form in Norfolk bodes well for the weekend.
Cammish was on the podium at Snetterton in his first BTCC season in 2018, and the following year he took two seconds in the day’s opening two races.
A trio of sixth place finishes followed in 2020, and whilst the 33-year-old has never previously won in the BTCC at Snetterton, he won every race he started at the circuit in the Porsche Carrera Cup in 2015 and 2016 and last year was first and second in the two Porsche races respectively.
Last month, Cammish and team-mate Ash Sutton took part in the two-day Goodyear tyre test, ranking in second in the overall combined times, just 0.015 seconds behind Sutton.
“The tyre test at Snetterton a couple of weeks ago went well for us,” said Cammish. “Two very good and positive days, so that should give us a strong base to build from at the weekend.
“I’m looking forward to getting back to Snetterton, it’s a circuit I enjoy driving and I’ve gone well there in the past so we’ll be aiming for everything to come together and deliver a strong weekend.”
Cammish is hoping to improve on the two podium finishes he has earned so far in 2022, in order to move up from 11th overall in the drivers’ standings.
“We’ve had some knocks this season so far but we’re all staying positive, keeping our focus – no pun intended – and looking forward.”
Team Manager Oly Collins believes that this weekend’s weather forecast being similarly hot to the conditions during July’s test bodes well for the team’s fortunes.
“We know the 2022 Focus is good around Snetterton from the recent test there, now we have to back that up when it matters,” added Collins.
“The forecast is that temperatures should be similar to when we were there last month, so what we all learned will be valid. Hopefully, Snetterton will also fare better for FWD cars than Knockhill did – we’ll see.
“I think Hybrid will be quite effective at Snetterton too, with plenty of opportunities to deploy on a long lap, so that will be interesting to manage over the weekend.”
