Honda signs Carrera Cup hero Cammish as Shedden's replacement

Thursday, February 15 2018

Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship-winning team Halfords Yuasa Racing has signed two-time Porsche Carrera Cup GB Champion Dan Cammish to replace Gordon Shedden in its 2018 line-up.

Yorkshireman Cammish has dominated the BTCC-supporting Porsche Carrera Cup over the last three years, winning back-to-back crowns in the 2015 and 16 seasons. The 28-year-old almost made it three in a row last year, despite missing two races to compete in the Formula 1-supporting Porsche Supercup, in which he finished the season fourth in the title standings. He also claimed a stunning victory in the Le Mans 24-Hour supporting Porsche Carrera Cup race.

Prior to his Porsche success, Cammish also claimed the British Formula Ford Championship in 2013 - winning every round he entered - and contested a season in the British GT Championship's GT4 class the following season.

"I'm obviously over the moon to be signing for Halfords Yuasa Racing, Cammish said. "They are a team with a highly successful background and a team that has proven they can win championships. I have my hopes set high for 2018 and lifting the overall drivers crown would be a dream come true, but first of all I appreciate, that as a works team driver, points for the manufacturer and team's championships are the main priority.

"I've followed the Team Dynamics boys over the years from the Porsche paddock and can't wait to get behind the wheel and try out the Honda Civic Type R first hand, you know they develop quick, well handling cars and I'm sure it will suit my style of driving."

Halfords Yuasa Racing and Director, and team-mate, Matt Neal added: "This is a great signing for us, Dan has been very successful in every Championship he has competed in over the years. He's incredibly difficult to pass and knows how to defend a position. We needed someone with his standing to help the team challenge for overall honours in all three championships this year. The goal for 2018 is to come away with as much silverware at the end of the season as possible. I'm really looking forward to him being my new team mate and to us battling away together this season.

"One thing is for sure with Dan, he will be able handle himself in this highly competitive championship, he conducts himself with professionalism and is good on camera, he really ticks all the boxes as a replacement for Flash and I wish him all the best for the coming season, it's great to have him on board."
