CRS REVEALS WINTER SERIES LINE UP
CRS Racing today revealed the trio of drivers who will contest the 2010 Michelin Formula Renault UK Winter Series in the red, white and blue-liveried CRS cars. Robert Foster-Jones will be joined by Oliver Rowland and Evelin Frank for the six-race Winter Cup.
Rob Foster-Jones began his single-seater career with CRS this year in the main Formula Renault UK Championship. He has already proved himself as a winner and will be focused on winning again and taking the winter title.
"I'm really looking forward to the Winter Series and hopefully getting back to the top step of the podium," said Rob. "The team and myself have worked hard in our preparation for this so I hope we can claim our rewards."
Multiple kart champion Oliver Rowland, holder of the 2010 CIK-FIA Super KF and KF1 World Cup, was singled out as a future star a long time ago and has recently won the backing of the Racing Steps Foundation for the mini end-of-year campaign. The Winter Series will see the 18 year-old from Sheffield make his car racing debut.
"I'm here to learn," he said. "Racing a car for the first time will be a big learning curve for me and the more I can take from the experience, the better. We haven't done much testing but I will obviously do the best job that I can and learn as much as possible in the hope of winning an RSF-funded seat for the 2011 season."
Evelin Frank started racing karts in Italy in 2007. The multi-lingual 17 year-old from Zagreb in Croatia took part in Adrian Sutil's charity karting gala in Munich in 2009 and beat Sutil at his own game. She is joining CRS for the Formula Renault UK Winter Series to make the step up into racing cars.
The 2010 Winter Series starts on 6 November at Snetterton, before moving onto Pembrey in Wales the following weekend.
