HUNGARY FOR SUCCESS IN BUDAPEST

Jersey, UK: James Walker is off to Budapest in Hungary this week for the next leg of the 2008 World Series by Renault. Last year's Hungarian race was tough for all the drivers as the temperatures soared into the nineties but it was this race where James really got on top of the World Series car and started to show fantastic pace.

The 2007 race at the Hungaroring was James' first visit to Budapest but he immediately took to the tricky circuit. It's a tight and twisty track that has been described as 'like Monaco, but without the barriers'. The circuit sits in a natural amphitheatre which makes for excellent viewing for the large crowds who turn out every year and James will be out to show them what he is made of.

"I can't wait to go back to the Hungaroring; it's a track where I made huge progress last year and it suits my driving style," said the Jersey racer. "Last year's race was very hot and physical so hopefully all the training I have been doing will pay off. I really want to make sure we have a good weekend after the disappointment of Silverstone. The team and I can't wait to get out there and start testing on Thursday."

James will be on track at the Hungaroring for testing on Thursday and Friday. Qualifying gets underway at 0945hrs on Saturday with the Superpole session taking place at 1120hrs. The races begin at 1425hrs on Saturday and 1315hrs on Sunday.
