|First blood for the Coopers|
|DGPLS autumn season opened at Watkins Glen
The first race in the newly acquired Cooper-Maseratis turned out a succes.
Star driver Henrik Christensen fought his way up through the competition and finished an astonishing P3 in the 42-lap race at Watkins Glen upstate New York.
Michael Andersen fell back to P6 when he was shunted twice in very unfortunate accidents, and team boss Per Einarsson lost a P9 on the penultimate lap due to running out of fuel.
Søren Bærholm was disconnected after 33 laps and was thus unable to finish the race.

|The team is back on track and no doubt the tough drivers will gather points in every race and climb the point-rank to finish among the top-contenders.|
