Kevin Ceccon will be joining Carmen Jorda and Robert Cregan to form the official driver line-up for Ocean Racing Technology in the GP3 Series. At the tender age of 18, the Italian driver already has solid experience in auto racing, but like his new team he will have to learn the GP3 Series.

Kevin Ceccon is the reigning AutoGP champion. In 2011, he added several races in the GP2 Series to his CV, and also took part in Scuderia Toro Rosso's F1 tests in Abu Dhabi.

The young Italian driver cannot wait to discover his new championship. "I am very happy to face this challenge of the GP3 Series with Ocean Racing Technology, who is discovering this world at the same time I am. I think that with my experience, I could conceivably finish in the top three of the championship. I can't wait to get my start in the Silverstone tests, where I will be able to start working with the crew," declared Kevin Ceccon.

Ocean Racing Technology believes the contribution of a reigning champion, alongside the other rookie drivers Carmen Jorda and Robert Cregan, will be a plus for the team. "Kevin is a very fast, professional driver. Despite his youth, he has the necessary experience to successfully enter the GP3 Series and to help his two teammates to evolve. It's a great pleasure to be able to count on him," declared Tiago Monteiro, Ocean Racing Technology team Manager.
