Seven teams race at Speedcar Series opening round

Speedcar Series' second season begins this weekend at the Dubai Autodrome with 14 cars on the grid. The Speedcars will be run by 7 teams from six countries across Europe, the Middle East and United States.

Two of the current seven teams participated in Speedcar Series last season. They are German Phoenix Racing who also race in DTM, FIA GT and Le Mans 24 hours and the Union Properties team from the UAE. Newer teams include a second UAE team Continental Circus, Italian team Durango with a 28-year racing history in the F3000 and GP2, HPR from the UK that receive technical support from AF Corse (three time FIA GT World Champion), JMB from Monaco and the American team Palm Beach Racing.

Claudio Berro, Operations Director of Speedcar Series said, "We are very pleased with the high level of teams that we have on board at the moment. Our focus this season is to attract professional teams and we are accomplishing that. We are still waiting for a final adjustment to the list of drivers from some of our teams. It will be finalised today and announced tomorrow. However, I can anticipate that our entry list includes seven F1 level drivers: Season 1 Champion Johnny Herbert, Jean Alesi, Heinz Harald Frentzen, Stefan Johansson, Vitantonio Liuzzi, Gianni Morbidelli and Jacques Villeneuve."
