Banbury, UK, Monday 8th July 2002: Round four of the NDS EuroBOSS Series arrives in Most, Czech Republic, this weekend (13/14th July) as some of the most famous cars from the world of F1, F3000 and Indy Car line up to battle for top honours. Following the excitement of the third round at a very wet Mondello Park in Ireland and the expected large crowd, this event has all the ingredients ready for a top notch motor race.
Round four in Most has attracted five new drivers from across Europe, yet another indication that Europe's fastest motor racing Series is growing from strength to strength. The new cars competing include a Minardi Cosworth, Lola Audi and Dallara Ferrari.
The race for the title has been blown wide open after 22 year old South African, Earl Goddard, in a 1994 Benetton put on a superb display of driving in the last round to take the top spot ahead of Dutchman Klaas Zwart, driving a V10 Ascari Judd. 16 year old Scott Mansell, the Series' youngest ever competitor, made his debut in a 1991 F3000 Reynard Mugen, formerly driven by Christian Fittipaldi, at Mondello Park. He proved that he is talented and courageous and gave many of the more experience drivers a run for their money.
An impressive support race package gets the action off to a flying start on Saturday 13th July, with qualifying practice for the MATADOR Skoda Pick-up Free Style at 09:30 and the Octavia Cup entrants on track at 10:10. Between 09.00--09:20 spectators will get their first chance to see the NDS EuroBOSS cars as they take to the track for the first test session, and again at 11:30-11:50. The real battle begins at 13:40 with the first race of the weekend, the MM CR, and the first of the MATADOR Skoda Pick-up Free Style races gets underway at 14:55. The EuroBOSS cars return to the track to fight for supremacy in the official timed qualifying, at 15:45, competing for pole position in Sunday's race.
The relaxed atmosphere means that unlike Formula 1 it's possible to see the competing cars at close quarters, including the 1995 V12 Ferrari, formerly driven by Jean Alesi, and the 1994 V8 Benetton Ford in which Michael Schumacher won his first ever F1 Drivers Championship. An autograph session with all of the NDS EuroBOSS Series drivers will be held on Saturday afternoon, so meeting stars of the future such as Scott Mansell and Earl Goddard is a real possibility.
On Sunday morning the NDS EuroBOSS warm-up takes place between 09:20--09:30. Then three highly competitive races in a row; the Skoda Octavia Cup starting at 09:40, 15 laps from Franz Woss Racing commencing at 10:20, with the EuroBOSS cars returning to the track ready for the impressive F1-style start at 13:00 for 20 laps of nail-biting action.
