The young Venezuelan has a promising racing CV. He was 2012 F2000 champion, with a record number of wins and poles, and has been a development driver for Ralph Firman.

Roberto La Rocca “I’m delighted to be signing with Bamboo Engineering, we’ve had a great few days of testing and I’m eager to sign and start working towards the season. Taking the step up to GP3 is a big one but I feel it’s a natural progression for me after winning Formula 2000 last season.”

Richard Coleman - Chief Executive Bamboo Engineering “ Roberto has the right attitude and recognises that GP3 will be a steep learning curve. He has shown promise during testing and we’re confident he will build his skills throughout the year.“

Bamboo Engineering will be selecting and announcing the signing of their other drivers in the coming days and are currently testing Ryan Cullen, Lewis Williamson and Ethan Ringel.
