Top results for DPR workshop set ups in the non-team supported Academy and Roadsport grids.

Caterham Supersport Championship

 Stephen Nuttall holds his championship position with his 1st, 3rd and fastest lap

The first race saw the leading pack trade places throughout the first race but in the closing stages Stephen Nuttall made and held a break to cross the line one second ahead of the following pack with the added bonus of gaining the fastest lap in the race. Danny Killeen was 2nd and championship leader Jenkins crossed the line in 3rd.

All of this hard work was put at risk by a track limits penalty that would have demoted Nuttall to 7th. However after a visit to the Stewards the penalty was rescinded by a unanimous verdict.

The second race was just as close but this time it was Jenkins who claimed 1st and fastest lap. Nuttall preserved his championship position by stealing third from Killeen on the final approach to the line. Allowing for dropped scores, Nuttall is just two points behind Jenkins.

Good results were claimed across the DPR team. R300 driver Matt Dyer returned to race in Supersport for the Castle Combe round only and gained a respectable 7th & 5th. Newcomer John O’Brien in the DPR Arrive & Drive hire car gained 9th and 8th and for race two was followed by the remaining DPR team drivers Nick Powell, Nick Portlock and Ian Sparshott allowing DPR team drivers to claim six of the top eleven results.
