Bamboo Engineering to enter GP3 championship

Known in racing circles as a touring car team, Bamboo Engineering purchased the Atech GP3 Series team as they move toward open-wheel. A plus for the team is they have raced on the same circuits with their WTCC cars.

Bamboo Engineering are proud to announce that they will be competing in the GP3 Series Championship as they rebrand GP3 team Atech GP.

Bamboo Engineering who are better known for running Touring Cars in the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) and formerly in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) are set to compete in the 2013 GP3 Series that commences at the Circuit de Catalunya, Spain in May this year.

The GP3 Series is known as one of the world’s finest single seater championships seeing some of the most promising young racing drivers compete for honours and reputation. The 8 round championship covers some of the most challenging circuits in the world and is a well documented feeder to the GP2 and F1 Championships.

Bamboo have drafted the expert hand of Jonny Ostrowski into the team. Jonny has first hand experience with leading Grand Prix names including McLaren as well as decades of motorsport experience to draw on including winning multiple races in World series by Renault and F3.

Richard Coleman – Chief Executive – Bamboo Engineering: “We’re thrilled to be competing in one of the world’s finest single seater formulas. Bamboo Engineering will be looking to make its mark and carve a strong reputation. We can’t wait to get stuck in and make a real impact on our first season in the GP3 Series, with our racing pedigree we’re well prepared to show just what Bamboo Engineering can do.”

I’m really looking forward to testing next week in Estoril.

“We’re really excited to welcome Jonny on board as well; his experience is single seater racing is second to none and he will add yet another dimension to the ever-growing Bamboo Engineering Technical Team."

Jonny Ostrowski: “I’m enjoying my new role at Bamboo and working with the boys in the GP3 team. I’m really looking forward to testing next week in Estoril and all the challenges that lie ahead in such a good series as GP3.”

The first event in the 2013 GP3 Series calendar takes place at the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain on the 10th May 2013. Incorporating two races per weekend, reverse grids and identical cars, the GP3 Series never fails to entertain.
