London, UK – February 26, 2014 – Nick Yelloly will return to the GP3 Series for a third year after signing a deal with Status Grand Prix.
Yelloly made his debut in 2011, but the following year switched to Formula Renault 3.5 where he had one of his most successful seasons, claiming two victories and four podiums. The 23-year-old returned to GP3 last year with Carlin Motorsport to secure four podiums and finish sixth in the championship.
Commenting on his signing, Yelloly said, "I’m very happy to be joining Status GP for 2014, and we have a clear aim to win the championship together. I’d like to thank my father, David, and my manager Mark Blundell for making it happen with Status GP. We are really looking forward to getting started.”
Team principal Teddy Yip Jr said, “Nick has been a highly successful driver over the past two seasons, and we know that his experience and leadership as well as speed are important assets for our driver line-up in GP3 this season. He is ready to win this championship, and the team has re-doubled its efforts this winter to provide Nick and his team-mates with a title-winning platform.”
Yelloly’s season with Status GP will begin with the first of three pre-season official tests at Estortil on March 27-28. The 2014 GP3 Series season will commence with the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona on 11th May.
