Positive start for Un-Limited Motorsport
Positive start for Un-Limited Motorsport

Un-Limited Motorsport got their inaugural Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship underway at the weekend, and to be honest it was a good first weekend for the Kent based team.

Daryl DeLeon who had done no testing in the Cupra Leon coming into the opening weekend at Donington Park, put the Cupra 9th on the grid for the opening race of the season. An impressive performance for Daryl and the team.

In race one of the season, much of the race was spent behind the safety car after an incident on the opening lap. DeLeon ran behind the safety car in 9th place, before they went racing he lost places as cars came past. Dropping back to 12th place and did well to keep out of an incident which saw Huff spinning around on lap 18. 

It looked like his Hybrid wasn’t working in the opening race as Chilton and Doble powered past him on the straight. He took 14th place on the road, and as Adam Morgan was penalised post race, he moved up to P13 and took three points in the teams opening race.

For race two the track had dried out and it meant that DeLeon started from P13, as race one results set the grid for race two.

In the early stages of the race DeLeon dropped outside the top 15 after being overtaken by Andrew Watson, Huff and Dan Rowbottom.

He moved back into the final points place when Pearson went off and he was then in a battle with Chris Smiley for that final points position for most of the rest of race two. As the chequered flag fell DeLeon finished P15 and took the final point on offer. 

It was P15 where DeLeon started for the final race of the weekend.  Once again it was a dry race as the sun shone as the lights went out. 

Unfortunately his race was to end on lap three as he ended up in the travel trap, bringing out a safety car.

It was however a positive start to the season for the newly formed team with two points finishes. As well as a second and third place finish in the Jack Sears Trophy.
