Price appointed head of operations

As the GP3 Series testing programme continues, the organisation team for the new Series gets structured: Leon Price has been appointed Head of Operations. Price is no stranger of motor racing having worked as Team manager for DPR for four years in the GP2 Series where his organisation and people skills have always been noted as a true asset to both the team and the paddock.

Leon started his career in Motor Sport in 1994 working in composites construction at DPS Composites. In 1997, he moved to the track first as tyre technician, then a bodywork technician and finally number 2 mechanic for David Price Racing in Sports cars. From 2001 to 2003, Leon worked for Arena Motorsport as number 2 mechanic on the RDR8. He returned to DPR as number one mechanic in 2004 while the team was racing in Renault V6. DPR entered the GP2 Series in 2005 and Leon became first Chief Mechanic and then Team manager. He left the team this season.

Leon Price said: "I am very happy to join the GP3 Series. It is a new and exciting challenge! Of course, my new mission will be a bit different from everything I have been doing up until today, but I am quite excited about being part of this new adventure. I am really looking forward to helping to make this new Series as successful as the GP2 Series."

GP3 Series organiser Bruno Michel commented: "We are very pleased to welcome Leon on board. We are convinced that his experience and knowledge of the racing world will be a real asset to our new Series. As we will be announcing the GP3 teams in the coming weeks, Leon is sure to be extremely busy soon."
