The World Series by Nissan teams will unveil their weapons in the Circuit de Catalunya.

Barcelona 19th February 2003 The 26th and 27th of February, the World Series by Nissan 2003 will start up his second year of life with the celebration of its first Collective Test. It will be a very important moment for the twelve entered teams, which will unveil their weapons to affront the successful single-seater Series organised by RPM Racing. The Dallara-Nissan cars, powered by the new 450 HP, will try to set a new record in this demanding track and stand out as the fastest single-seater cars here, apart from the F-1.

The World Series by Nissan is causing a small revolution in the driver's worldwide market: Marc Gene, linked to the Series, will probably be announced as a driver in the Spanish-based squad, Adrian Campos Motorsport. The Brazilian drivers Luciano Burti and Enrique Bernoldi, the Argentinean Esteban Tuero, or the Belgium driver Bas Leinders, brilliant 3rd classified in the World Series 2000, are also linked to the Series.

Some of the Teams had already confirmed their official line-up. This is the case of the Spanish team, Gabord Competicion, which will have the RenaultF1 test driver, the Frenchman Frank Montagny, and the Finnish Heikki Kovalainen, another driver from the RenaultF1 orbit, from the Renault Drivers Development. In the Belgian Team, KTR, alongside the US driver selected in the Red Bull Drivers Search, Paul Edwards, will race the youngest Spanish driver of the Series, Felix Porteiro. Zele-Racing, the Austrian-based squad has signed with the young Austrian driver Norbert Siedler. The Italian team Vergani Racing has lined-up the Mexican Ricardo Gonzalez. Epsilon-Euskadi has already confirmed, Ander Vilariño.

Two important Teams will join the list of entries in 2003, Carlin Motorsport and Saulnier Racing. Saulnier Racing will have the French drivers Didier Andre and Bruno Besson. Carlin Motorsport has reached an agreement with the Indian Narain Kartikheyan.
