I was informed by Marc Zimmerman, public relations of Brasilan driver Osvaldo Negri Junior, about IndyLights tests to be held during week Dec. 18 to 22 to select drivers for Marlboro LatinAmerica Team. They will be testing at Phoenix circuit, both oval and road track, to choose 2 driver, one Brasilian and one Argentinian. The Brasilian drivers will be Affonso Giaffone, Gualter Salles, Helio Castro Neves e Osvaldo Negri Junior. Affonso did well in his first year in IndyLight this season, Helio was thrid in the final table in his first year in British F3 this season, Gualter got good results in the British F3 and Osvaldo was in British F3 in 91 (together Barrichello, De Ferran, Andre Ribeiro, Coulthard, Gene, and others) and also Mexican F3.

The new Marlboro LatinAmerica Team will be supervised and advised by Emerson Fittipaldi and will have its technical basis from Tasman Team, part of the team will come back to IndyLights, including the management by Steve Horne and not only technical assistance, as has been reported previously.

FYI. Regards, Joao Alcino.
