"England has so much history in motorsports... I always wanted to race there but never had the opportunity as I was coming up the ladder. Brands Hatch in particular has such a famous reputation - it's a name I've known since I was very young - so I'm really looking forward to racing there. My teammate Roberto Moreno has had a lot of experience racing there in the early part of his career so I'm sure that will be helpful to the team. And the 30-second laps should make it very interesting for both the drivers and the fans! "

Roberto Moreno - Driver, Car 4

"Brands Hatch is one of the most famous tracks in England and when Formula 1 was racing there back in the early 80's, it was known around the world. Going there for me is great because it brings back lots of great moments in my first years of racing when I was building myself as a driver... it was a very important place in the beginning of my driving career. My very first time driving there I had the pole and finished first or second. And in 1980, I won the Formula Ford World Cup Festival there. The circuit is so exciting with the level changes and such. You must be very precise on this track with a car that turns in well the way Champ Cars do. But more than that, it's a beautiful place and the fans are very knowledgeable about racing. I'm excited to return there and I think it will be a great weekend for everyone."

Of Note:

A number of rule changes are in place for the two European rounds of the series in order to accommodate running a road course and an oval in one trip and the nature of the particular tracks. For Brands Hatch, the pit stop interval rule has been modified in that there will be no mandatory pit stop window but each car must complete two pit stops under green-flag conditions during the 165-lap event.
