Jonatan Jorge will participate in Formula-3 championship in Turkey.

Brazilian driver Jonatan Jorge, who receives support from F-1 driver Juan Pablo Montoya and Pitbull Energy Drink, will race in one of the events of the Toshiba-Bridgestone Formula-3 Championship, in Istanbul, Turkey. The invitation came from Active Team, one of the most prominent F-3 teams in Turkey.

"I am very happy with the invitation," said Jorge." Turkey has been increasingly growing in the international racing scene. So much so that there is quite an effort being made to build a track to host a Formula- 1 event in the area.""I especially want to thank Turkish driver Can Artam, with whom I raced in the Skip Barber Series this season. He was a strong competitor here in the USA and the fact that he appointed me for a place in the Active Team is quite an honor."

"I've never raced a Formula-3 car but both the team and the Bridgestone technicians have already offered to give me all the necessary support," said the driver. For one of Jorge's main supporters-- Pitbull Energy Drink-- the race in Turkey represents a good opportunity for marketing exposure, as the event will be televised to many countries in which the company has developed its market. Additionally, the F-3 race will have newspaper, magazine and radio coverage alike. The event will take place at the Korfez circuit on July 28th.
