Tambay re-unites with EuroInternational for FBMW World Finals in Valencia
On the back of a dominant double-victory at last weekend's final round of the FBMW Germany series in Hockenheim, French schoolboy, Adrien Tambay has signed to drive for the EuroInternational team, in the FBMW World Finals in Valencia, Spain on the weekend of November 24th and 25th 2007.
Having had a hugely successful season with the Josef Kaufmann Racing team, Tambay had also driven twice for EuroInternational in the United States during this, his debut season in open-wheel racing. Those US races were also successful, and the choice of team partner for the World Final was a difficult one, initially involving as many as four teams. When it came decision time, Tambay and his family considered their options closely, considered the opinions of their sponsors and management team, and chose Antonio Ferrari's EuroInternational organisation.
During a break from physical training in his home town of Le Cannet earlier today, Tambay, who is seen as a true favourite for victory in Spain, commented, "It's been a very tough decision, and we didn't rush it. There were two main options, each of which I have raced with this season; each of which I know well. The deciding factor was that in spite of the fact that I finished best of the JK Racing drivers over the course of the FBMW season, they were unable to prioritise my effort for Valencia. Whilst they've proven that they can manage a three-car programme effectively over the course of the season, this is very different, very intense - with everything riding on a single weekend. With EuroInternational, we are guaranteed to be their main focus, and that should make a positive difference. We are confident that our choice is the right one, and are looking forward to Valencia."
Speaking from his base in Indianapolis, USA, EuroInternational team boss, Antonio Ferrari welcomed Tambay's decision, and promised that it would transpire to be the right choice, "Adrien is a very special driver. He's a joy to work with, a real talent, and it was a priority to sign him for the World Finals in Spain. We couldn't be sure that he would choose us, as JK Racing is also an excellent team, but we are really happy with his decision. We are totally focused on providing him with everything that he will need to win in Valencia, and are confident that together, we can do exactly that."
On Wednesday of this week, October 24th, Adrien Tambay will announce the support of a new sponsor, joining for the FBMW World Finals, with a commitment through 2008.
