Vervisch joins GD Racing in Formula Renault 3.5

Frederic Vervisch will join GD Racing for the remainder of the Formula Renault 3.5 season. In 2005 already, Frederic sat behind the weel of one of GD's cars during the races at Zolder, Monaco, Valencia and Le Mans. At the end of last year, the 21-year-old Belgian driver tested for the team of Rinaldo Tagliabue.

Frederic Vervisch: "I'm obviously very happy that I will be driving for GD Racing in Estoril and Barcelona. Rinaldo invited me to replace one of his drivers and I took this opportunity with both hands. We always kept in touch with the team and after a fantastic season in German Formula 3, where I finished runner-up, this is the ultimate reward for all the hard work. We don't know where we are at the moment, but I know we're facing a difficult task. I will need some time to get accustomed again to the car, because there are some new parts and systems. And I don't know the circuits as well. I never had the chance to drive in Estoril or Barcelona. Nevertheless I hope to be up in the pack and maybe we can get a good result with the reversed grid. It's good for me to get some more experience in the car. At the end of the season you're not under pressure anyway, so I can fully concentrate on driving the car."

The races in Estoril take place on October 20th and 21st, while a week later, the Formula Renault 3.5 season will be concluded in Barcelona.
