Dan Cammish sealed victory in the Jack Sears Trophy by winning his first ever Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship race at Brands Hatch – and immediately followed that up with his second race victory!

It capped a stunning BTCC rookie season for the 29-year old Leeds-based Halfords Yuasa Racing Civic Type R driver, who ended up winning the Jack Sears Trophy by 86 points.

Chris Smiley finished runner-up in his BTC Norlin Racing Honda Civic, while Matt Simpson snatched third place from Rory Butcher on a tie-break.

Cammish will receive the top prize of a new Stilo ST5 GT Carbon helmet, supplied by Nicky Grist Motorsports, at the BTCC awards ceremony.

A record 22 drivers fought for the Jack Sears Trophy in 2018.
