The FIA F3000 International Championship teams head to the principality of Monte Carlo this weekend for the Blue Ribbon event of the motor racing calendar, the Monaco Grand Prix. The Nordic Racing team shall be looking to put behind them the bad luck that struck the team at the Nurburgring two weeks earlier, with point scoring finishes from drivers Justin Wilson and Kevin McGarrity, the team's main aim.

"I cannot wait to get to Monaco and score some more points for the team," said Justin Wilson, who currently stands at fifth in the drivers championship table. "The circuit is a tough one to master and you have to be prepared to brush barriers when going for a fast lap. Having said that, I am sure that I can qualify well here and I shall be looking to add some points to my current tally."

"Monaco is unlike any other circuit on the calendar," confirmed Team Principal Derek Mower. "A driver has to be fast here in order to get a good qualifying position, and it is in qualifying that this race can be won or lost, as a successful overtaking manoeuvre is rarely seen in Saturday's race. As long as Justin and Kevin keep out of trouble with the barriers, then I am confident of us scoring some more points this weekend."
