Goddard to drive a Benetton in 2002 NDS EuroBOSS Series.
Banbury, England, Friday 19th April 2002: Earl Goddard from Brackley, Northamptonshire, will drive a Benetton V8 Cosworth in this years eight-round NDS EuroBOSS Series. The 22 year old South African-born former kart champion will race the 1994 ex-F1 Benetton, previously driven by Michael Schumacher during his first Formula One World Championship winning season.
Earl is one of a new breed of single seater racing drivers electing to race in the NDS EuroBOSS Series, a clear sign of the momentum and profile that this attractive series of former F1, Indy and F3000 cars has established. Having finished runner-up in the Championship for the past two seasons from a limited number of races, Earl will be one of the main contenders to win the 2002 Series outright.
"It will be an exciting season and pretty competitive. Last year other racing commitments meant that I could only compete in four rounds. This year I shall be undertaking a full season in the NDS EuroBOSS Series and my aim is simply to win or score well in as many races as possible.
I can't wait for the first race at Donington (6th May), having won there twice last season. The car is well prepared and I'll be looking for a hat-trick, the only down side is that I'll probably get less than an hour to familiarise myself with the car before the action starts. Let's hope I'm a quick learner!"
The NDS EuroBOSS Series caters for all powerful open wheel single-seater racing cars of an unlimited specification including ex-F1, F3000 and Indy Cars. The 2002 Series commences at Donington Park over the May Bank Holiday weekend with the race taking place on Monday 6th May. A total of eight rounds are planned for the 2002 NDS EuroBOSS Series, including races in Ireland, Holland, France, Germany and the Czech Republic.
