DPR sign Bakkerud for 2007

Dane Christian Bakkerud will race with the DPR team during the 2007 GP2 season, the outfit announced on Wednesday.

The team, who also announced they will race without the support of Carlin Motorsport after the planned merger of the two teams fell through, said his teammate is expected to be announced shortly.

Bakkerud had raced for Carlin for the past three years.

"I'm very pleased that Christian will be with us, especially as he's benefited from a GP2 test and has already visited some of the Grand Prix tracks thanks to the British F3 Championship," said team boss David Price.

"We're working flat out now to get the cars prepared and the second driver finalised so we can get fully back up to speed before the official testing starts."

Bakkerud, who finished sixth in the British F3 championship last year, had already tested for the team in Valencia at the end of last year.
