TOP 2009 IFM DRIVER TO TEST IN GP2 SERIES WITH DAMS

For the third year running, International Formula Master (IFM) drivers will battle it out on track throughout the 2009 season for a chance to be rewarded with a test with a top GP2 Series team. This year GP2 Asia Series leaders Dams are the team chosen to trial one deserving IFM racer.

Running the 2007 Formula Master Champion Jerome D'Ambrosio since his graduation from the Series to GP2 two years ago, Dams has been competing in international motorsport since its creation in 1988 by Jean-Paul Driot and Rene Arnoux.

The team holds a great record in single-seater racing, GT cars and sports cars with championship titles in Formula 3000 and Formula Renault Eurocup, as well as podium finishes in the GP2 Series, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the FIA GT Championship.

"Dams is pleased to team up with Formula Master in the promotion of young drivers, by giving them the opportunity to shine at the wheel of a GP2 car and demonstrate their potential," said Dams Team Owner Jean-Paul Driot. "This partnership between two series is very interesting to me, especially in the current financial situation."

"To date 14 IFM drivers have competed in GP2 or GP2 Asia races, which makes us very proud but also shows the defined progression line that has emerged between our two series," said Formula Master General Manager Alessandro Alunni Bravi.

"Dams are a great outfit with a formidable pedigree; before its current pairing, the team was running Kazuki Nakajima who became a Formula 1 driver in 2008 with Williams F1. We are delighted to have them involved with Formula Master."
