Zandvoort Ultimate Masters
Carlin hopes for strong performance

Aldershot (UK) 2 August 2006. Carlin Motorsport heads for the traditional summer F3 showdown at the Zandvoort circuit in Holland next weekend with a strong driver line-up. Christian Bakkerud, Oliver Jarvis, Maro Engel and new kid on the Carlin block, Brazilian Mario Moraes are Carlin's representatives for the first comparison this year between the cream of Europe's F3 teams.

It's the 16th running of the Zandvoort F3 race weekend and the unofficial European F3 decider ( up until last year the event was known as the Marlboro Masters and it is now the BP Ultimate Masters) and previous winners include Takuma Sato with Carlin Motorsport in 2001, David Coulthard, Christian Klien and Jos Verstappen. The Zandvoort weekend is a show case between the best drivers and teams in Europe and the entry is by invitation only.

Team Principal Trevor Carlin
"After last weekend in Spa, where it was clear that our cars are very competitive and we feel confident that we are on top of the game, at least in terms of the British F3 group. It's always hard to tell how well we compare with the Euroseries teams and drivers attending because of the use of different tyres but we will give it our best shot. There are some strong teams and good drivers out there and we are looking forward to this weekend. We have a really good driver line-up this year and I feel all of our drivers are in with a good chance of a podium if they stay out of trouble. "
