Cammish set for BTCC comeback with NAPA Racing

Dan Cammish will return to the British Touring Car Championship after securing a 2022 drive for the Motorbase-backed NAPA Racing UK outfit.

The reigning Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion will make his return after spending this year with no full-time BTCC seat.

He made a guest appearance at only the first race weekend with BTC Racing after Michael Crees parted ways with them.

Cammish said: “I am very happy to be joining the NAPA Racing team ahead of the 2022 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship season.

“It was obvious from the first time of meeting Motorbase owner Pete Osborne I wanted to be part of this program, and after spending quality time with the team it is clear this is a very exciting time for all involved.

“Everyone is working hard to give the team the best possible chance and it fills me with confidence when I see the work taking place behind the scenes.”

The NAPA automotive parts manufacturer recently joined the BTCC in partnership with Motorbase, an outgoing name with several years of experience.

“I am incredibly proud to be representing NAPA in UK motorsport and I believe this is just the start of a long and successful partnership,” continued Cammish.

“This is a new chapter for me in the BTCC and I can’t wait to get started and pick up where I left off.”

Cammish secured eight wins at his maiden and former outfit, Team Dynamics, to finish third in the 2019 and 2020 drivers’ standings.

For 2021, he returned to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB championship as a former two-time champion before his BTCC debut.

He successfully claimed the Pro title with Duckhams Redline Racing after three race victories and 12 podium finishes to mark his third title at the team.

His 2022 BTCC campaign will get underway at the Donington Park season-opener on 23/24 April.
