Fabio Onidi will race in Auto GP. The italian driver signed an agreement with team Lazarus in order to be on the series starting grid and compete for the 1.2 million euros prize money. 22 years old, from Milan, Onidi has a great racing experience considering his young age. Thanks to a really good career management, Fabio raced on very different cars and, most importantly, in lots of different countries as he left Italy very soon, when he was just 16. In 2004 he raced in Germany in the F.Bmw Adac, where he was third among the debuting drivers, then in 2006 he went to England to race in the F.Renault UK, being the best among the rookies. In 2008, when he was 20, he jumped in a F.3000 car and was immediately competitive, finishing runner-up in the Euroseries 3000 standings with two wins and six podium finishes. Choosing Lazarus, Fabio will find one of the makers of that great season; Tancredi Pagiaro, owner and team manager of the new outfit, was his mentor also at GP Racing in 2008. The harmony between Onidi and Pagiaro, together with the driver's talent on such powerful cars, are an hint that this duo will surely be among the ones to watch in the coming season.
Enzo Coloni: "The Lazarus-Onidi team-up is undoubtly good news for the series: Pagiaro has a great winning experience both in Formula 3000 and GP2, while Fabio was second and third in Euroseries 3000 in the last two seasons. Drivers who will aim for wins and for the prize money, will have to keep an eye on them".
Tancredi Pagiaro (Team Lazarus owner): "I'm looking forward to the start of this adventure. Lazarus is a new outfit, with skilled and experienced technicians and engineers. I'm very happy about our agreement with Fabio Onidi, I think that he will be among the top runners. Besides that, Auto GP has everything is needed to become one of the best series around: a serious and professional organization, a really fast car, great technical partners like Zytek and Michelin, and a huge prize money thanks to PartyPoker. Auto GP is the only racing series which offers such a prize, and besides that is a FIA authorize championship. Finally, I'd like to say thank you to all our partners, they immediately believed in the Lazarus project".
