1992 British Touring Car champion started his association with Nationwide in 2007 with a double win and went on to claim two Porsche Carrera Cup titles in his orange, blue, and white liveried car.
Two-time Porsche Carrera Cup GB runner-up Dino is the newest member of the Nationwide family, carrying the familiar orange, blue, and white colours in 2018.
Double Porsche Carrera Cup champion and record breaker Dan has raced with Nationwide since 2015 and will continue as an ambassador of Nationwide in the BTCC in 2018.
BRDC Rising Star and Porsche Scholarship finalist Kieran Vernon stepped into Tim Harvey's driving seat for the second half of the 2011 season.

At Nationwide teamwork is at the heart of everything we do, and it’s the focus on ‘TEAM’ that attracts us to motor racing.
In the bodyshop it takes great individual skill and craftsmanship to repair vehicles, but it needs excellent communication and access to the latest repair technology to complete work to the highest standard and ensure customers are re-united with their vehicles in the shortest possible time.
Similarly, although there’s only one driver behind the wheel of the racing car, winning requires the strength of the whole team, from the pit lane to logistics, combining all of their individual skills and effort.
This is now our tenth year of motor racing sponsorship. It began with Touring Car legend Tim Harvey during his Porsche Carrera Cup GB championship winning seasons, continued with two-time Champion Dan Cammish, and now starts with Dino Zamparelli this season.
Apart from sharing the values of teamwork, there’s something else we really enjoy about motorsport: everyone at Nationwide can get involved! Each year we ask our team members to help to choose our sponsorship livery and we follow Dino’s progress at every race. We also make tickets available, so everyone can come along with friends and family to watch Dino race.
We never forget that customers are part of our wider team which is why we extend the invitation to them and we’re delighted that many join us on race weekends.
Whether on the circuit or at work, teamwork is key to any success. It is why ‘One Nationwide, One Team’ will always be our ethos.
"We go racing because it showcases our dedication to teamwork."
Entering its sixteenth year in 2018, the Porsche Carrera Cup GB is at the very pinnacle of British motor racing and a firm fixture in every motorsport enthusiast’s diary.
The championship has proved itself as a springboard for drivers seeking different careers and accomplishments within the motorsport arena. Nick Tandy, the first British driver to win Le Mans in a Porsche since Allan McNish in 1998, made his debut at the Porsche Carrera Cup GB in 2008. After winning the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland in 2011 and the prestigious Porsche Cup in 2012 as the best private Porsche driver worldwide in a 911, he became a works driver and progressed through the Porsche racing series. His impressive achievements earned him a seat in the third entry for the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2015 where he went on to win the toughest car race in the world.
Many drivers seeking a career as a professional sports and GT racer have used the Carrera Cup as a launch pad. Former Porsche Carrera Cup GB champions Richard Westbrook, Michael Meadows and Damien Faulkner have built careers as professional racers and 2012 Carrera Cup GB runner-up Ben Barker raced a Porsche 911 RSR in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016 and 2017.
In 2017, an unpresented number of current and recent Porsche Carrera Cup GB drivers participated in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup including Josh Webster (the 2015/2016 Porsche GB Junior), Dan Cammish, Tom Sharp, Paul Rees, Ryan Cullan, Sean Hudspeth and Mark Radcliffe. This highlights the calibre of drivers that the Porsche Carrera Cup GB championship continues to attract and support.
