French company Biotech International becomes Julien's main partner in his conquest of England and Formula Palmer Audi.

After having raced two seasons in the United States in Barber Mazda Series, with 10 podium finishes last season, the driver from Nice, Julien Gerbi, will compete in 2009 in the renowned British Championship Formula Palmer Audi, which will start next week at Brands Hatch.

Biotech International, a branch of the Groupe Upperside, specializes in the medical field and works on two areas: oral implantology and surgery of the extremities. Biotech International will appear especially on the sidepods of Julien's Van Diemen Audi, as well as on its front wing.

Julien Gerbi :

I would like to thank Frederic Impellizzeri, all the Biotech International and Groupe Upperside Team for their trust. Their society is very dynamic and, moreover, is based in my region, which allows to establish a closer relationship. They are extremely well known in the medical field, and to be part of such an image is a great opportunity for my career. Now I can concentrate on my main function, which will be to drive as quick as I can ! Our pre-season testing has been very positive and I think the car suits me rather well. Brands Hatch is a track to discover for me, against fast and experienced drivers, and I will do my best to shine over there. Eventually, I would particularly like to thank Fabrice Le Mouel, who worked very hard since several months in order to allow me to sign in Formula Palmer Audi. It is also thanks to him if I will be seated in the car next week-end.

Frederic Impellizzeri, Biotech International R&D Director :

We are very excited about this partnership with Julien Gerbi. Motorsport has a worldwide image of dynamism, technology and competition. In the medical field as well, we have to provide our customers with the most modern and efficient technology. This association is perfect for us, and we will use it in order to promote our business and satisfy our customers. We wish good luck to Julien for the exciting season ahead that we will all follow with attention.

Julien will fly to Brands Hatch next week, in order to participate to the first rounds of the season.
