Brazilian F3 ace tests Carlin car ahead of F3 Masters event at Zandvoort

Aldershot (UK) 18 June 2006. Carlin Motorsport tested Brazilian F3 Championship contender Mario Moraes at Pembrey last week ahead of the BP Ultimate Masters race at the Zandvoort circuit in Holland on the 5th and 6th of August.

Trevor Carlin, Managing Director, " We are delighted to have signed Mario to drive for us at Zandvoort. He comes to Europe with a lead in the South American F3 series and a growing reputation and he showed real promise at Pembrey in testing last week. I'm really keen to see Mario racing against the cream of Europe in the Masters event but it will be a tough baptism for him as circuit time is very limited before qualifying. We're going to give him another run in the car before Zandvoort to assist him with his preparations and this will include mileage with the Kumho tyres which we will all use for the Masters race week-end "

Speaking after his first test with the Carlin team, Mario said: " This is a great opportunity for me to begin my European learning with the British championship winning team. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the team, this is definitely a level above what we have in Brasil because the equipment is more modern and the technical side is slightly more advanced. I'm not worried about not knowing the Zandvoort circuit, the team have arranged for me to watch a DVD of last year's race and I normally learn new circuits quickly."

Mario Moraes will be joined in the Carlin team for the Zandvoort Masters event by regular British championship racers Christian Bakkerud, Maro Engel and Oliver Jarvis.
