ADM-Motorsport started their 2004 programme.
After starting their first official tests yesterday morning in the Autodromo of Vallelunga, ADM-Motorsport launched their 2004 project in the completely updated Superfund Euro 3000.
"We are ready to open a new chapter in Formula 3000", said Team Principal Renato Melchioretto during a lunch with his friends and sponsors. "As a team we have already proved that drivers from our series are well prepared for Formula 1 and with the help of our new series sponsor it should be possible to establish the Superfund Euro 3000 as the top feeder series for the class of kings."
After ADM-Motorsport opened "the door" for young Roman Gimmi Bruni, the team is now keen to continue their driver development programme with two Rookies, Norbert Siedler and Allam Khodair.
Norbert Siedler, 21 years of age, has already had his first sweet taste of the European Championship with a superb 3rd place at the season final in Cagliari. The Austrian feels ready now to fight for some further top positions: "For the first time since I have been racing in single seater categories, I am part of a team that has anything you need to be successful. There is still a lot to learn for me, about the car and the new tracks, but nevertheless my expectations are very high."
Allam Khodair (22) from Sao Paulo, the reining Brazilian Formula Renault Champion, is looking forward to continue his career in Europe: "I want to thank Renato for the friendly and nice atmosphere in his team. With all the experience of him it will be a lot easier for me to show a good performance also in this championship." Khodair is the fifth driver from Brazil to race for ADM.
Test Report Vallelunga - March 31st 2004
Under try conditions on the first day and mixed conditions on the final day ADM-Motorsport worked through their first official testing programme. "For us it was not important to fight for the best lap times, before the first race, but nevertheless we are happy about this result", commended Renato Melchioretto, after his drivers had set the best times of day 2. Norbert Siedler was the quickest man of the day, not only in the try but also under wet conditions.
