The Clonbullogue teenager was a the centre of controversy earlier in the morning when he was put in to a wall by Bulgarian racer Nikola Tsolov in free practice.

Dunne was given a reprimand for unnecessarily impeding Tsolov while the Trident driver was hit with a three place grid penalty for causing a collision.
