"...... and it's grow, grow, grow!"
Wednesday 27th August 2003: Motorsport history will be made at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend with the visit of the EuroBOSS Championship and the appearance of the ex-Bryan Herta 1999 Reynard Indy Car.
Not only will this be the first ever appearance of an Indy racecar on the historic Belgian circuit but, under the control of Canadian driver Robbie Stirling, the powerful EuroBOSS entry will be the first to take part in a major European single seater championship where the starting light isn't the only 'green' feature of the race--... the car will be running on bio-ethanol fuel.
The driving force behind this project is UK-based Team Nasamax, whose race preparation of the Cosworth V8 engined Reynard follows their outing at the 2003 24 Hours of Le Mans, where they became the first team to field a wholly-renewably fuelled sports prototype. Bio-ethanol is produced from vegetation as opposed to synthetically manufactured from petroleum products.
Roger Cowman, Series Director, 2003 EuroBOSS Championship:
"EuroBOSS recognises the importance of alternative fuels for the future of motorsport and we are delighted to be able to offer Robbie and Team Nasamax this high profile platform to demonstrate the performance capabilities of the bio-ethanol fuel."
The EuroBOSS Championship is an FIA 'International Racing Series' open to Indy Car and pre-1998 Formula One and F3000 chassis with engines of unlimited capacity. Teams competing in the Championship visit some of the most prestigious circuits throughout Europe including Silverstone International, Spa-Francorchamps and Le Mans. This exciting and rapidly growing single seater formula is host to some of the world's finest racing machines, many of which have played a part in shaping the history of Grand Prix racing.
A field of 17 cars will be stirring the passions of the Belgian crowd when the race powers off this Sunday, 31st August. Keep a special look out for the No. 19 Team Nasamax entry, complete with a fresh new livery of white and-- green!
