David Price Racing (DPR) GP2 team head into the new seson geared up for the recently launched GP2 Asia series by introducing a stunning new look for their cars. In a contrast to the 2007 GP2 series, where the team ran a conservative white and blue livery, the car is now a vivid yellow and black colour scheme, retaining the original flame pattern across the front of the car.
The launch of the new GP2 Asia series marks a new beginning for DPR as they intend to build on the success the team had at the end of the 2007 season. In the final races of the season the team had a strong run of form; leading a race and a series of podiums with their driver Andy Soucek. The team recently announced Armaan Ebrahim and Andy Soucek as the driver pairing for the Series.
The Asian series will retain the existing 2007 GP2 chassis and engines, bringing the same excitement and close racing seen in the current Formula One feeder category, to the Asian nations. The five round championship will see the teams race in a variety of Asian countries, such as Dubai, Bahrain and Malaysia from January through to April, making the traditional quiet 'off' season much busier for the GP2 teams.
DPR team owner David Price commented, "The new colours on the car are fresh, distinctive and give us a stronger identity, heading into the new series. It should make us really stand out from all the other cars - although we aim to be right at the front, so you won't miss us!
"My mate Eddie Jordan will probably think we've copied him, with them being yellow and black, like the old Jordan's, but that's just a coincidence! We knew we needed a change for the new series and we just came up with these colours, and went for it. Let's hope our GP2 Asia championship is as bright as the cars and we might be in with a good chance of scoring our first win."
The GP2 Asian championship begins in January and runs through to April; it will be included as an F1 support race at the Malaysia and Bahrain Grand Prix. The season Kicks off at the Dubai Autodrome on 25th January 2008.
