GABRIEL DIAS TO CONTEST BRITISH F3 NATIONAL CLASS WITH T-SPORT

Brackley, UK -- 9 March 2009: T-Sport today announced the addition of a second Brazilian driver to its British F3 line-up. Eighteen year-old Gabriel Dias will join fellow Brazilian Adriano Buzaid and British racer Wayne Boyd in the T-Sport squad in 2009.

Dias' 2008 racing season was brought to a premature end at the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup round at Spa when he broke his back in an accident. He has chosen to compete for the National Class Championship with T-Sport in 2009 in order to get his career back on track before moving up to the Championship Class in 2010.

"My original plan was to be a serious Formula Renault Eurocup 2.0 contender in 2009," said Gabriel. "My recovery from my Spa accident is on schedule but, as it meant I was unable to take part in the Eurocup pre-season tests, I decided to move to British F3 one year earlier than the original plan. I'm sure it will take some time to adapt to the car and the tracks but I am very confident that through testing and the proven skills of T-Sport I will have everything in place to be competitive by mid-season."

"Gabriel has come to T-Sport as he wants to get back to where he was before the accident," said T-Sport Team Principal, Russell Eacott. "We can provide him with the right environment for learning all the skills he needs to step up to the Championship Class. He came to us via Reunion Management with whom it's always a pleasure to do business. He's a talented kid and we're pleased to be able to help him to rebuild his career. We also want that National Class title back!"
