Dan Cammish completed a second clean sweep from as many 2013 Formula Ford GB meetings with two more lights-to-flag wins in rounds five and six at Donington Park.

In the first of Sunday?s races, the JTR man finished five seconds clear of Juan Rosso. The Argentine had passed fellow rookie Harrison Scott two laps from home.

Rosso?s Jamun Racing teammate and compatriot Nico Maranzana finished fourth after making a late move of his own on Scott?s Falcon teammate Lassi Halminen. George Blundell held off debutant Sam Brabham for sixth with Camren Kaminsky and James Abbott completing the classified finishers.

Luke Williams spent time in the pits with technical issues but rejoined and set the fastest lap. Fred Martin-Dye ran as high as fourth on lap four when he missed his braking point at the chicane and went straight on.

In the final race, Cammish was even more dominant than before, building up a 12 second gap over the 18 lap race.

?It?s all good, especially the car,? said the 24-year-old afterwards. ?Do I want some competition? No, I?m quite happy doing it this way; you never get bored of winning. I know that the others will get there eventually and close the gap, but until they do I am happy.

?It?s been really good weekend for me again. Three poles, three wins – three quite dominant wins in the end. The whole idea of coming back to Formula Ford was to get my name back out there, to do the best possible job that I can for myself and for the team, and see where life takes me after that. So far, so good.?

Maranzana held second place until the very last lap, when a fuel issue dropped him behind Rosso. Williams survived a clash with Halminen that put the Finn into retirement to claim fourth, ahead of Scott, Brabham and Abbott. Blundell, Martin-Dye and Richardson completed the finishers, while Kaminsky ended a pretty torrid joining Halminen in retirement.
