MARLBORO CUP '97

In past days, Marlboro Cup Series director, Michel Jourdain, visited Brasil and Argentina. Now we know that Michel's plans for next year is to extend de Mexican Formula 3000 to Southamerica, because of this the name of the category would change to Latin American Formula 3000 Series.

One of the persons involved in the proyect is ex-Formula 1 driver Nelson Piquet, who owns a circuit in Brasil, and who is looking forward to do the series next year.

The Lola Formula 3000 chasis and the Chrysler V6 engine would remain the same for the fisrt season, but this last could be changed in the future to match thier cousins in europe.

For 1998 we would have four races in Southamerica (Brasil, Argentina, Costa Rica) still to be decided, and four in Mexico (Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara and San Luis Potosi).

The plan looks exiting, we oly have to wait to see it come true. Soon we will gave more information.

COPA MARLBORO '97

En dias pasados el director general de la Copa Marlboro, Michel Jourdain, viajo a Brasil y a Argentina. Ahora sabemos que Michel tiene planeado llevar la Chrysler Formula 3000 a Latinoamerica, por lo que la categoria podria llevar el nombre de Formula 3000 Latinoamericana.

Una de las personas involucradas en el proyecto es el expiloto brasileo de Formula 1 Nelson Piquet, quien es dueo de un autodromo en su pais natal.

Los chasises Lola y los motores Chryser V6 serian los oficiales para la primera temporada, aunque se podrian cambiar estos ultimos en el futuro para igualar a sus primos europeos.

En 1998 se tendrian cuatro carreras en sudamerica (Brasil, Argentina, Costa Rica), la cualexs aun se tienen que decidir y cuatro mas en Mexico (Distrito Federal, Guadalajara, Monterrey y San Luis Potosi).

El proyecto luce emocionante y solo falta esperar a verlo realizado. Pronto tendremos mas infomacion.
