Duckhams is delighted to announce its new partnership with Dan Cammish and Team Redline Racing in the 2021 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Series. Sporting a striking look that features the iconic Duckhams yellow and blue colours, Dan’s new look car was unveiled during testing today.
Cammish commented: “It’s been an unexpected start to 2021 but I’m really thrilled to now have the backing of Duckhams and excited to fly the flag for this iconic motoring brand, after a few years away from motorsport. I’ve known the Duckhams name all my life – I’m proud and excited to help showcase the new Duckhams identity and range.”
Duckhams Chairman, Jabir Sheth explained: “Duckhams has a fabulous 120 year history, many of the greatest names in motorsport have relied on Duckhams over the years. We were looking for a partnership to help raise awareness of our new Advantage Plus (ADV+) range and the opportunity to work with Dan and Team Redline Racing was too good a chance to miss out on.”
Duckhams recently agreed a new distribution agreement with members of the RAPID Group. Adnan Umarji, Group Chairman added: “It’s great to see Duckhams back on the track – we’ve been working with Duckhams over the last few months and our customers are really engaged with the brand history and the products – we’re looking forward to sharing Dan’s progress with all those Duckhams fans!”
A four-time champion, British driver Dan Cammish has enjoyed success at every stage of his racing career, culminating in back-to-back Porsche Carrera Cup GB titles in 2015 and ’16. His 2013 season in Formula Ford EcoBoost 200 is the stuff of legend, winning all 24 of the races in the championship, with 22 pole positions and 19 fastest laps. He moved to sportscar racing in 2014, competing in British GT in a GT4 Porsche 997 and turned heads with a guest drive in the final round of the Carrera Cup season, taking two pole positions and winning one race at Brands Hatch.
From that point on Dan hasn’t looked back, narrowly missing out on a third-straight Carrera Cup title in 2017 after being unavailable for some races in order to complete the full Porsche Supercup season. Still, he finished second at Monte Carlo in the latter and won the prestigious race at Le Mans in July with an exceptional overtake at high speed around the outside of Indianapolis on the final lap.
In 2018 Dan joined the British Touring Car Championship grid with Halfords Yuasa Racing and Team Dynamics in the brand-new Honda Civic Type R (FK8), where he showcased his talents while battling for the Jack Sears Trophy for rookie drivers. He followed up this fantastic debut season with a sterling show in 2019 where he took 14 podium finishes. For 2021 Dan makes a return to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, with Team Redline Racing, aiming for a third overall championship title in the series.
