Former Formula Ford 1600 racer, Gideon Cresswell has signed to race in the 2001 Club Formula Palmer Audi Championship with backing from London-based computer software company,QAS Systems Ltd.

"I'm delighted to have signed up for this year's Club Formula Audi," said Cresswell. "I had planned on doing the full FPA championship this year but unfortunately, that wasn't to be. Having said that, Club FPA has all the makings of a great series and I don't expect there to be that many differences between this championship and the championship FPA had originally planned to race."

Cresswell starts the season with some experience in the formula, having competed in last year's winter series. The Maidstone driver has previously enjoyed success in the Kent County Formula Ford championship and enjoyed an untroubled run to the1999 Formula Ford 1600 winter title.

"I had a bit of a tough time last year, despite holding my own against some of the more experienced drivers in the Kent County Championship the previous season," he explains. "The Formula Palmer Audi winter series was a great experience though and made me more determined than ever to do a full season of competition in 2001.

"I've only raced three times in eighteen months due to funding problems, but as long as I can get some miles under my belt in the first few races and bank some points in the early rounds, I see no reason why I can't start to challenge for race wins later in the year. At the very least, I'm looking for podium placings."

QAS Systems is a private limited company established in 1990, with UK offices in London, Edinburgh, and Manchester. An expanding international presence now includes the USA, Australia and Europe.

"QAS are pleased to be sponsoring Gideon in this year's Formula Palmer Audi championship for what we are sure will be a highly successful year," commented Barney Craggs, UK Sales Director. "We wish Gideon all the best and hope all his hard work and dedication pay off."
