Adrian Zaugg with Trident Racing in Auto GP

Trident Racing has completed its Auto GP line-up. The italian team will field Adrian Zaugg, who will race besides the already confirmed Julian Leal. The two, despite being very young (19 years old Leal, 23 years-old Zaugg) will make a strong and experienced duo.

Zaugg, who was part of the Red Bull Drivers Programme at the start of his seingle seaters career, races from 2004. In 2005 he took his first win in F.Renault 2.0, racing in the Eurocup. Then, the following year, he was runner-up in the Italian Series, getting really close to the title with 6 wins, twelve pole positions and 4 podium finishes.

With this results and an unmistakeble talent, Adrian has built his own path to GP2 and A1 GP. In A1 GP, racing for Team South Africa, he had some very good seasons, and was able to clinch 3 wins, six podium finishes and five pole postions, adding important results to CV, which was completed in 2009 with a season in Ws by Renault.

Thanks to the agreement with Trident Racing, Zaugg will race with the same team that fielded him in the last GP2 Asia season, and will surely take advantage from this proven relationship.

Enzo Coloni: "I'm really happy of having another top-notch driver like Adrian in the championship. Everybody knows he is quick, and he knows the car from his A1 GP times, so he could be among the top runners right from the series first race. Zaugg's entry is also important because with him we have drivers from 9 different countries, something that gives us a really international appeal".
