Oliver Pla signs with Carlin Motorsport

The French Driver Olivier Pla has signed with Carlin Motorsport for the rest of the Season. Pla debuted in the World Series by Nissan with the Italian squad RC Motorsport. The new agreement found with the British Team is valid for the rest of the Season.

Pla has replaced Michael Keohane in the Team, who found a deal just for one race, and he is delighted with this new deal:" I have secured my future in this Series, and I'm very happy with the new situation."

Pla will be now playing a front-role alongside the current Series leader, Tiago Monteiro.

Enrique Bernoldi (GD Racing) lost his leadership in Zolder, after Monteiro took a double win, but the Brazilian is very confident about the next race weekend: "I will try to recover my position in France".

Gommendy, Jouanny, Ravier, Vilariño, Kartikheyan or Kovalainen, are some of the drivers that have proof their level in this high single seater competition.

The World Series by Nissan will host its third meeting in Magny Cours (France). All three categories will be racing this weekend. Tomorrow, the Teams World Series by Nissan and the World Series Light will be on duty for the Collective Test. In the World Series by Nissan category, it is already confirmed that Vergani Formula and Belmondo Racing will not take part in this meeting. Again, the lack of sponsors has left its drivers without a drive. Francesco Marzi, which team has recently launched a new site (http://www.verganiformula.com) still quite optimistic: "I waited until the last minute trying to hold Sperafico, but the money did not arrive. Still, I will continue to work because I'm sure there are plenty drives to be found."

Giaccomo Ricci and Tom Dillman, new drivers in the Formula Junior

The 1600 Spanish Formula Junior Championship and the World Series Light will be part of the event as well. In the Formula Junior, the Italian driver Giaccomo Ricci, one of the main animators of this Series last year, is back in the grid.

Tom Dillmann, a young Belgian driver, will be also making his debut in this launch on step category.
