New programme, new colours
Building on its numerous 2007 successes DAMS has upped its ambitions for the 2008 season, and confirms its participation in several top-class international championships.
This year DAMS will be back in the GP2 Championship, the F1 feeder series. Two entirely new cars designed by Dallara with Renault power will be entrusted to Toyota driver Kamui Kobayashi, and Jerome d'Ambrosio. On 25th January, DAMS will enter the Asian GP2 Series with the same 2 drivers. The team is happy to announce its selection for the BMW Europe Championship, whose races are curtain raisers at the majority of the Formula 1 grands prix.
DAMS has also decided to start this year with a completely new visual identity including a revised logo and new paintwork with the cars' livery redesigned around red and grey. This refined colour profile reflects DAMS's professionalism and international ambitions; it will be a part of the team in 2008 and beyond.
In addition, DAMS! will launch an entirely new dedicated web suite, www.dams.fr, at the end of next week. It will be open to both professionals and enthusiasts, and will allow them to follow the team's season weekend after weekend providing results and frequently updated information.
The DAMS team wishes all motor sport lovers a magnificent 2008 season, and looks forward to seeing them on 25th January in Dubai at the first round of the Asian GP2 Series, which will fire the opening shot in the team's new campaign.
Eric Boullier, General Manager: "DAMS is expanding like its ambitions. This winter we've spent a lot of time restructuring our team to take up the challenge represented by our participation in three top-level championships. Our aim hasn't changed, and we're out to win everything in which we've entered; and also to reinforce our status as one of the main player on the French motor racing scene. We've decided to highlight our image even more in a year full of inn! ovations. In the hugely competitive world of today's motor sport no aspect of our activities can be neglected. Our new livery will enable us to boost our impact as well as that of our partners on the international scene. This coming season I'm really delighted to be part of a highly professional, closely-knit team whose human values and motivation need no further proof."
