Dino sets early pace

Nationwide Accident Repairs Services is showing the midas touch in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, as NARS-sponsored Dino Zamparelli started his season off with victory at Brands Hatch and followed up with third place in the second race.

In race one, Dino qualified to secure pole position and brought the Nationwide Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car home first on track.

‘It was a good day’s work,’ said Dino. ‘We focused in practice on qualifying and race one, I’m really pleased we got pole by two tenths and got the win. Today wasn’t the easiest conditions to have the races in. To get race one underway and dominate in the way we wanted to was awesome.’

In race two, the first reverse grid race in Carrera Cup, Dino took third.

‘Race two was all about keeping out of the barriers,’ said Dino. ‘It wasn’t easy, there was lots of backmarkers, lots of rain, there was so much going on. I drove well for a reverse grid race at Brands Hatch Indy, which isn’t easy, and got a third place. To show we could overtake on the tightest circuit on the calendar is good.’
