Team RSC Mucke Motorsport resumes winter tests of the GP3 Series - At Jerez with Melker, Steindl and Munoz - Brisk driver demand for Formula 3 Euro Series tests as well
Berlin (rol/ot) The preparations for the 2011 season are in full activity at the German Team RSC Mucke Motorsport from Berlin. After the tests of the GP3 Series last week at Estoril (Portugal; 13th to 15th of October) with the Netherland Nigel Melker, the Switzerland Andrina Gugger and the Austrian Willi Steindl the team of Peter Mucke and Ralf Schumacher is on track at the 3 day GP3 tests at Jerez (Spain) as well that started on Wednesday (20th of October). Behind the wheel of the cars of the racing stable from the German capital city there will be Melker again - the 19 year old is already constant driver for RSC Mucke in 2011 - and the 18 year old Steindl. Furthermore there will be the Colombian Carlos Munoz (18) that already has been on track for the biggest private racing stable of Germany at the just finished season of the Formula 3 Euro Series as Rookie and that has been on the podium with position two already.
"In about two weeks we will start the winter tests fort he Formula 3 Euro Series as well at the Nurburgring. The demand of drivers that want to share the tests and the tests of the GP3 Series as well with our team this year is quite big", tells team principal Peter Mucke. "We are looking forward to the work with the new pilots and the ones that already have been on track for Mucke Motorsport." Just like Willi Steindl that has been on track with the Berlin team at the ADAC Formula Masters in 2008. In 2009 and 2010 the Austrian drove at the ATS Formula 3 Cup in Germany.
At the GP3 test at Estoril the Austrian and also Nigel Melker have always been found at front. "We expected that of Nigel because of his good results at the GP3 premiere season 2010. But it was amazing to see how quick Willi managed the GP3 racer", tells Peter Mucke. Also Andrina Gugger (19) that got the chance for a test from RSC Mucke Motorsport being the first woman at the GP3 Series did her thing very good. "Andrina learned a lot and didn't make any mistakes. It was a big step for her from the Formula ADAC to the GP3 racer that she managed quite well."
The device for the racing stable from the German capital city for the coming weeks is clear: after the season is before the season. Means: The driver sightings for the racing season 2011 are accelerating.
