Leal in Auto GP with Trident Racing
Auto GP is pleased to welcome Julian Leal in the Series. The 19 years-old driver from Colombia will be on the championship grid, fielded by Trident Racing, and will contest the whole season, starting in Brno on April 24 and ending in Monza on the 3rd of October.
Despite his young age, Leal already has a lot of experience on powerful machinery: in 2007 and 2008 he raced in Formula 3000, winning the Italian Championship in his second season. In 2009, then, Julian switched to World Series by Renault, championship that he will contest also in 2010 alongside Auto GP.
This means that he will have a very intense season at the highest level in motorsport; the commitment in Auto GP will not only be something important for his experience as a driver, but also a chance to aim for the 200.000 euros prize money that the championship will award at each event to the six best placed drivers.
Enzo Coloni: "We are really happy of having Julian in the Series. He already raced with us, and we know very well his driving skills, that allowed him to win the Italian Championship. Compared to then, now he is a even better racer, so he will be a tough opponent for everybody".
Julian Leal: "I think that my participation in the Auto GP championship will be very important for accumulating kms with a really performing car as the Lola Zytek is. The very next season will be challenging but I am focused on obtaining the best results".
Maurizio Salvadori: "In spite of his age, Julian has been the Italian Champion with a car which is very similar to the Auto GP car, so we expect good results from the very beginning of the Championship".
