David Price Racing

David Price Racing in 1997, with a Panoz GTR-1 in the FIA GT Championship

David Price Racing (commonly referred to as DPR) is a British motor racing team, owned and run by David Price. They have competed in various forms of motorsport since their foundation in 1976.

The team initially ran small open-wheel series in Britain in the late 1970s, including British Formula 3 and Aurora F1. Many future Formula drivers raced for the team, including Nigel Mansell, Martin Brundle, Johnny Dumfries, and Tiff Needell. With Dumfries, David Price Racing was able to win the British F3 Championship in 1984. The team would also expand into French Formula 3 at the time with Paul Belmondo.

In 1987, David Price moved into sports car racing, becoming team manager for Richard Lloyd Racing. This earned him a job at Sauber-Mercedes in 1988, helping the team achieve the World Sportscar Championship and a 24 Hours of Le Mans victory in 1989. David Price was then hired by Nissan Motorsports Europe to run their sportscar program, before eventually becoming a race director at Brabham in Formula One in 1993.

David Price Racing returned to competition in 1995, running in the BPR Global GT Series. One of the multiple McLaren F1 GTR teams in the series, they won the teams championship in their first year of competition with drivers John Nielsen and Thomas Bscher. The following year they would take third in the BPR championship. David Price Racing then became the European factory team for Panoz, running their Esperante GTR-1s in the new FIA GT Championship as well as supporting the primary team in the United States.

During a brief interlude from Panoz, David Price Racing ran a BMW V12 LM at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, finishing fifth overall. The team would later return to support Panoz's own Le Mans prototype efforts in the American Le Mans Series and at Le Mans itself. Following the 2001 season, David Price Racing went on hiatus. The team would briefly assist MG in development of the XPower SV for 2002.

In 2004, David Price Racing returned, once again running single-seater cars. They ran the Formula Renault V6 Eurocup series before moving into the new GP2 Series in 2005, winning two races with Olivier Pla. The team briefly changed their name to Direxiv in 2006, before returning to the David Price Racing name in 2007. They also briefly ran the A1 Grand Prix series for A1 Team USA during the 2005-06 season.

David Price Racing competes exclusively in the GP2 Series since 2007, with drivers Christian Bakkerud and Andy Soucek. During the off-season, David Price talked about merging with Carlin Motorsport for a combined team in GP2, but the deal fell through, leaving DPR to compete on their own.

David Price (East India Company officer)

David Price (1762, Merthyr Cynog, near Brecon – 16 December 1835, Watton House, Brecon) was a Welsh orientalist and officer in the East India Company.

After the death of his father, a curate, Price was educated at Christ College, Brecon, before matriculating on 5 November 1779 as a sizar of Jesus College, Cambridge, but was nearly penniless by summer 1780 and had to leave the University. He decided to join the East India Company's army, becoming a cadet in it due to his father's friends' influence, sailing for India on the Essex in 1781 and reaching Madras in August that year before volunteering to serve in southern India and returning to the Essex to take him there. He participated in the siege of Negapatam and the capture of Trincomali in Ceylon during the passage to Bombay, arriving on 22 April 1782 and being appointed the following November to command the 2nd Battalion of Bombay sepoys. He then served in the wars on Tippu Sultan in 1782-84, 1790-92 and 1799, losing a leg at the siege of Dharwar in 1791 and thus being re-posted to the guard of Sir Charles Malet, political minister at Poona, then in 1792 to a staff appointment at Surat by the Bombay governor Jonathan Duncan the elder.

During his time at Surat he had enough free time to become keenly interested in Persian culture, collecting manuscripts and studying its historical classics, including the Akbarnama by Abu'l-Fazl, though he also rose to become the Bombay Army's judge-advocate-general from 1795 to 1805. A brevet captain by 1795, he was promoted to full captain two years later. He also served as military secretary and interpreter to Colonel Alexander Dow in Malabar (1797–8) and then as Persian translator to General James Stuart, commander of the Bombay Army (1799), being present at Seringapatam's capture and acting as the army's prize agent (thus making his own fortune). Next he returned to Bombay to continue his studies of Persia, being promoted to major in March 1804 before finally returning to Britain in February 1805, though he only retired from the Company in October 1807, on his marriage to a relative.

He lived in retirement at Watton House, Brecon, writing works on oriental history and serving as magistrate and deputy lieutenant of Brecknockshire. He was also a committee member of the Oriental Translation Fund, winning its gold medal in 1830, and of the Royal Asiatic Society (bequeathing the latter over 70 oriental manuscripts).
