Lucky Strike B.A.R Honda is delighted to announce that it has signed a long-term test contract with French Formula 3 Champion Ryo Fukuda. The team has also retained the services of 2001 test drivers Anthony Davidson, Darren Manning and Patrick Lemarie.

Fukuda dominated the French F3 Championship this season with 7 race wins in 8 Championship rounds. B.A.R, who have closely monitored the burgeoning talent of the 22 year old Japanese, were impressed by his bold driving style and flamboyant character.

Commenting on the latest addition to the test driver line-up, Engineering Director Malcolm Oastler said, "Fukuda is a big talent and we have had our eye on him for some time. I am pleased to have him on board and believe he can play a significant role in our major development push next season and beyond. We are committed to helping young, aggressive drivers progress and at the same time we benefit from a good mix of youth an experience within the team."
