ART is proud to announce its new driver line-up for the 2008 F3 Euro Series championship.

Nico Huelkenberg, who finished third in 2007 with the stable, will be joined by James Jakes, Jules Bianchi and Jon Lancaster. James's first season in the F3 EuroSeries convinced ART that he had the experience, the technical knowledge and the talent to be a valued member of the team and to add his name to the team's strong tradition.

Jules and Jon respectively dominated the Formula Renault 2.0 France and the Eurocup respectively and represent the future with ART wanting to unite the blossoming of these two future talents.

Frederic Vasseur: I wanted two drivers in their second season in F3 Euro Series because we'll have to handle the new car in the best and fastest way. Nico had an exceptional season in 2007 and James gave us excellent technical feedback during recent private testing. Jules and Jon easily defeated their adversaries in Formula Renault and are logical choices for ART.
