Daly is coming to his favorite race track - Spa-Francorchamps

The Formula One summer break is now over and after spending time at home in America, Conor Daly travels to Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium for the weekend for rounds 11 & 12 of the F1 support series, GP3.

"Spa might be my favorite circuit," said Daly. "It has everything to challenge a driver from Eau Rough to flat out blasts through what feels like the countryside. Rain or shine I always look forward to Spa."

Spa will play a key role for Daly as the season's championship plays itself out in the six remaining races. After two bad weekends in a row in England and Germany, Daly fell 39 points behind championship leader, Tio Ellinas. In Hungary, just four weeks ago, Daly chopped that deficit almost in half to 20 points with a second place podium finish. There is now a six way fight for the championship between drivers from six different countries.

"There is no real agenda from here on," said Daly. "The only thing I need is outright speed in qualifying and start up front. After that, all I can do is wait and see what happens to everyone else."

Daly drives for the French based ART Grand Prix team, which is regarded as one of Europe's best junior teams. Past drivers to have gone through ART include current Formula One drivers such as; Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Sebastian Vettel, Adrian Sutil, Jules Bianchi and Paul DiResta.

GP3 is part of the Formula One support program with all races except Valencia taking place at rounds of the Formula One World Championship. The final rounds will be held in Abu Dhabi on November 1st-3rd.
