Alongside the World Series by Nissan, the unbeatable single-seater offer started by RPM Racing capitalises the Eurospeedway-Lausitz event that will take place the next 19 and 20 July.

Barcelona, 9 July 2003 ­ The Superfund World Series by Nissan goes across its Ecuador in first visit to Germany since the Series started in 2002.

Alongside the World Series Light category (Dallara-AER 250 CV), the Superfund World Series by Nissan are capitalising the communication campaign for the race weekend the 19 and 20 of July, as you can appreciate in the poster attached.

Runaway leader Franck Montagny (Gabord Competición) has an advantage of 70 points from the Indian frontrunner Narain Kartikheyan (TATA Team Carlin), and 77 points from the third best driver, the rookie Bruno Besson (Saulnier Racing).

Montagny debuted as the reserve driver within the team RenaultF1 in the French GP. He achieved a remarkable 6th position, although an engine failure allowed him to test only 40 minutes from the scheduled two-hour private test session.

Marc Gené, joined-up in the Adrian Campos Motorsport Team, has been involved in his testing role with the BMW WilliamsF1 team in Barcelona, but he hopes to close the gap with the three top drivers in the Series and improve its 5th position in this second part of the Season.

The World Series Light category, which debuted successfully in Monza, has found a strong leadership in the 17-year old Adrián Vallés (member of the RDD program), followed by his teammate in the Escuela Lois Circuit Team, Alvaro Barba.

Mathias Lauda and Milka Duno are ³the most wanted drivers² in the paddock these days, as some teams had already step in the Eurospeedway-Lausitz venue for private testing.

Vergani Repsol Racing for Spain, Racing Engineering, KTR, RC Motorsport, Epsilon Euskadi, and the World Series Light teams Epsilon by Graff and Vergani Formula, are the teams visiting Eurospeedway from the 8th to the 10th of July.
