Das seeks his first victory
After a lengthy break, Cameron Das will be back behind the wheel of his Euroformula Open car as the 2018 season roars back in to action at Silverstone this weekend. After almost two months away from racing, Das will dust off his Carlin race suit, return to the cockpit and get ready to race once again as battle recommences in the challenging and competitive series.
In the four race weekends so far this season, Das has come tantalisingly close to his first race victory in the championship. Solid qualifying sessions and race pace has led to two podiums, a fastest racing lap, and five top five finishes out of eight races, with the opportunities for further success heightened as he begins to return to circuits he has previously raced at in the past. His strong form means that he currently sits fifth in the championship standings with four rounds left to compete in this season after a consistent showing up to date.
Das already has experience around the 5.891km Silverstone track, after appearances last season in the BRDC British Formula Three Championship as well as his debut race in the Euroformula Open Championship one year ago.
“Silverstone is just one of those tracks you always look forward to. It’s Carlin’s home GP and in a sense mine as well since I’ve lived in England almost two years now“, said 18-year-old American driver, “The track has a plethora of corners and variation between them; it hosts some of the best high-speed corners in motor sports. This year will be particularly difficult with the new surface that is incredibly bumpy and prone to collecting water in inclement weather, so it will be a learning curve for sure but I’m excited for the challenge.”
