Rodolfo Avila to unveil Macau flag in "Zandvoort Master of F3"

Macanese single-seater driver Rodolfo Avila will contest for the first time the hotly disputed "Zandvoort Master of F3". Rodolfo Avila who is currently racing for Cram Competition in International Formula Master will be the first driver to display the Macau flag in one of the most prestigious Formula 3 events in Europe.

Talents from the different national Formula 3 championships meet each other once a year to determine which one of them at last is the best Formula 3 driver of the moment. The race has been won before by drivers like Pedro Lamy, David Coulthard, Christian Klien, Tom Coronel or Lewis Hamilton. That weekend in Belgium, Avila will take on the best F3 drivers.

"We are going to do this race looking forward Macau Grand Prix. I don't drive a F3 car for long period of time and I want to be on shape for my hometown race. This race will be exceptionally competitive. All the top F3 will be there and I am driving IFM now. Anyway I'll do my very best and I've no pressure as I am not looking for an exceptional result. Racing is the best way to get involved with the team and that's the reason why I'll be at Zolder", said Avila.

The Macanese ace will drive a Dallara F307 -- Mercedes Benz of HBR Motorsport. The F3 Euroseries Austrian team is a well-know team for Avila as it was for them he did his best F3 result in Macau GP. "This is a team that I know and where I worked successfully before. 2005 experience at Macau was very good. Definitely this was the best option we could take. The package is excellent. I know them, they know me, and we share the ultimate aim of beating the 'big guys' of F3 world", held the driver sponsored by Macau Government, Macau-slot.com, BNU, CESLAsia, PAL AsiaConsult, TsingTao, Fat Siu Lau Restaurant, Sujika Crafts and PT Asia.

On the 4th and 5th of August, Belgium's Circuit Zolder will host the "Zandvoort Masters of Formula 3" for the first time in its history. Due to a decision of the Dutch Council of State, the usual home base, Circuit Park Zandvoort, was unable to organize the event at its own circuit. "I don't know the track but the feedback I got from other drivers isn't the very best. Maybe this is not the greatest track for F3 racing they say but there are few people knowing the circuit so it will be funny".

Avila will have a day action on the 25th of July at Oschersleben, Germany, to set up the Benelux event. At the same time Rodolfo Avila will continue his testing program and fitness training in preparation for the next rounds of the IFM to be held at Anderstorp on July 28th and 29th.
