WILL BRATT AND ROLDAN RODRIGUEZ WITH SCUDERIA COLONI IN GP2 ASIA

Scuderia Coloni is ready to start a new adventure in the 2009/2010 season of GP2 Asia. After making an impression in the Main Series testing in Jerez, where the team managed to put a driver among the top positions on each day, the team managed by Paolo Coloni will start in the Asiatic championship, on October 31 in Abu Dhabi, with a really promising line- up.

The italian team two cars, sponsored by PartyPoker, will indeed be raced by the brit Will Bratt and by the Spanish Roldan Rodriguez.

For Bratt, the seat is the prize for winning, just last weekend in Monza, the Euroseries 3000 title; 21 years-old, Bratt in 2009 managed to clinch 4 wins and three second places, which were crucial for an hard fought championship win. In the previous seasons he raced in F.Renault Uk and in the Spanish F.3 championship, with very good results. His roster comprehends 23 wins and 48 podiums, so the team has no doubt that he will be up to the task.

For Rodriguez, racing for Scuderia Coloni will be a comeback. Roldan already raced for the team managed by Paolo Coloni in 2008, both in the Asia and in the Main Series, with good results. At 24, he will be the experienced driver of the team having already contested three full seasons in GP2.

Bratt and Rodriguez will jump on the Dallara cars this weekend for the first official testing session in Abu Dhabi. On the Yas Marina circuit they will also contest the first two races, on October 31 and November 1, in occasion of Formula One's last race of 2009.
