Race 1 Sprint

Caisley qualified third on the grid for race one but slipped to fourth on the opening lap.

“I was a bit cautious at the start, but as I had lost ground on the lead trio, I could see them sliding around, so decided to conserve my tyres and just be consistent,”

he said after retaining a solitary fourth.

Race 2 Sprint

In the second race he was up to third by the end of lap two, with a bird’s eye view of the lead duel.

“I tried to get involved too but spent most of the race at a fairly safe distance,”

he said after taking third, just 0.455 secs off second place after a final charge.

Race 3

For the 3rd race of the day Caisley drove a fantastic race and took the chequered flag in 9th overall (amongst the SR3s) and took a class win!


David “Sven” Thompson

Race 1 Sprint

Thompson, who has piloted an SR1 before, set off in ninth position and held for the duration of the 20 minute sprint thus finishing 9th.

Race 2 Sprint

Sven’s second sprint race was unfortunately cut short after two laps. There was some elements to fix before the endurance race but this wasn’t going to be a problem for the team.


Race 3 Endurance

For the endurance race, Thompson was joined by European Le Mans driver Ben Hanley, who can usually be found racing an Oreca Gibson LMP2 car for Sven at Nielsen Racing. The duo had a great partnership and were able to join Ben on the podium in second place.

A triumphant result for DW’s SR1 drivers.

Race 1 Sprint

With Jason Rishover absent from the DW Racing line-up at Oulton Park, it was down to Peter Tyler to uphold the team honour in the Radical Challenge.

He was eighth quickest after the morning qualifying session and hoping for a top six in the upcoming sprint race.

Despite being a scorching hot day, he was caught out by tyre temperatures on the opening lap.

“It was understeering with cold tyres, and I had two wheels off on the grass at the Knickerbrook chicane and while I got it back under control Mark Williams and Chris Preen both got by,”

he explained.

He completed the opening lap in 10th and although he consolidated his place over Jacek Zielonka, he was unable to make inroads to retake Williams for ninth. “It was all fairly even really, so hard to close on them,” he added.

Race 2 Endurance

Seventh on the grid for the 45-minute Enduro, he was 11th at the end of the opening lap.

After working his way into ninth, he pitted from 11th on lap 12, before going on a charge in the second half.

On the hunt and with consistent laptimes, he eventually netted fourth.

Peter was able to seize all the opportunities and output consistent and fast laptimes. He eventually netted fourth place overall and the top step in his class.

“The safety car and pitstops closed it all up, but I was lucky to just avoid a pitlane incident when two cars collided,”

he explained.
