Trident Racing sing Kasper Andersen for the 2008 Formula Master International Series.

Trident Racing is glad to announce the deal reached between the team, owned by Maurizio Salvadori, and Kasper Andersen, for the 2008 Formula Master International Series. The co-operation with the Danish driver will include a GP2 Series test after the final round of the season, with the chance for him to join Trident`s GP2 program in 2009. Riccardo Ficca will be Kasper`s Race Engineer. Ficca, who counts on a 3-year experience in the field, is currently involved in the GP2 Asia Series. Andersen will hit the track for the first time at Lurcy-Levy; a test has been scheduled on the French track for the next March 11, to optimize the car`s aerodynamics.

Alessandro Alunni Bravi, Managing Director

"I`m proud to announce Kasper Andersen as an official driver here at Trident Racing for the 2008 Formula Master. Kasper will bring us his experience in the series, culminated with two wins in 2007, and will be welcomed by engineer Roberto Ficca, who had the chance to follow him in his F.3000 debut last year. I have to thank both Casper and his father Soren: they trusted Trident Racing in a crucial moment of the driver`s career, among many other possible choices. The team will give anything possible to provide Andersen with the best material and with the best support from an human standpoint. We hope to allow him to show his talent in the post-season GP2 Test, maybe with an even richer palmares. The deal completes the 2008 line-up of Trident Racing: the new Formula Master operation will count on a talented duo with winning backgrounds. The team will help them to improve their technical approach to the car, as well as the relation with their engineers, a standpoint for all the drivers looking for a professional outcome".
