CAMMISH & KMR AIM FOR 2010 UKFFC TITLE
The Spectrum chassis is set for its strongest showing in the UKFFC in 2010, with Daniel Cammish choosing to remain with Kevin Mills Racing, the team which guided him to a resounding victory in the 2009 UKFFC Scholarship class. Daniel will step out of his older, Scholarship class Spectrum 011 and into a 2010 Spectrum 012 in his quest for the Championship.
With the category changing tyre manufacturer this year, from Avon to Dunlop, Daniel is taking the opportunity of travelling down to Australia in early February to undertake a week of testing with the factory Spectrum team. The knowledge and experience gained in testing the new tyres will be invaluable to the team’s campaign this season.
Daniel commented that the more research he did, the clearer the option of staying with KMR and Spectrum became; “We did our homework on what to do this year, no question of that. We spoke to almost every other team and drove other cars. Time wise there isn’t much in it, but the Spectrum is more forgiving and definitely a much more comfortable and easier car to physically drive.” He added, “We’re very comfortable that we have the equipment to do the job. Kev (Mills) and his team are totally focused on winning and the support and enthusiasm from the Spectrum factory is amazing.”
Speaking from his Gloucester base, team owner Kevin Mills said, “We’re delighted to be working with Dan again this year. Last year was his first season racing cars; he scored pole positions in qualifying and was very unlucky not to have recorded outright race wins. The deal with Spectrum is superb. I can call Mike (Borland) whenever I need to and discuss what we’re doing. He offers full technical support and I am always surprised at how quickly they get development parts up to us when we need them. We can’t wait for the first round at Oulton Park!”
Mike Borland, designer and constructor of the Spectrum chassis, was equally pleased with the news. “This will be our third season with Kev and his team and each year has been better. KMR achieved victories with UKFFC rookies in Adrian Campfield in 2008 and Daniel Erickson in 2009; and it was a fitting reward for the effort everyone has put in. To have Dan Cammish back as a second year, experienced driver is fantastic. He did a great job in his rookie season, winning the Scholarship class and we believe he is ready for the challenge of the Championship battle this season,” he said.
