Young Finnish ace, Toni Vilander, 20, will leave the world kart Super A racing paddock in 2001.The young PCR and Dunlop factory driver will make his first footsteps in Formula racing after having completed very positive testing sessions this winter.

"It was not an easy choice because I felt comfortable in the Kart World, I had to turn down team's offers which wanted me to race go-karts in 2001. But, together with my management, we have decided to make a serious step in the future. I had the opportunity to test formula Ford, formula Renault and Formula 3 in the recent past, and the result was quite good. I know I impressed serious team managers or profesionnal racers, which gave me good tips, and now we are studying more precisely a jump in the German or English F3 Championships. We are still looking for testing opportunities before a final decision in late january but I am now preparing myself in confidence. Like always I will do my best and dedicate me 110% to my next targets."
