Dan Cammish will step up to the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship in 2018 after being named as Gordon Shedden’s replacement at Halfords Yuasa Racing.

Following on from Shedden’s departure from the championship last month, substantial intrigue and speculation has been built around who would replace the three-time title winner.

Stepping up from the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, 28-year-old Cammish will partner multiple champion Matt Neal to drive the teams second Honda Civic Type R.

Cammish arrives in the BTCC having made a name for himself on the TOCA support package over several years. In 2013, the Yorkshireman stormed to an impressive 24 wins in-a-row to clinch the British Formula Ford crown before then going on to win back-to-back Carrera Cup GB championships in 2015 & 2016.

“I’m obviously over the moon to be signing for Halfords Yuasa Racing, they are a team with a highly successful background and a team that has proven they can win championships,” Cammish stated.

“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.”

Entering the season with high hopes, Cammish has his sights set on not only helping the team lifted the coveted Manufacturer/Constructor and Teams’ titles but also lifting the coveted Drivers’ title too.

He said: “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.”
