Auto GP keeps attracting more and more interest as Austrian Team Zele-Racing is ready to join the Championship for 2012 and beyond.
Zele Racing targets Auto GP commitment
Founded (in 2002) and managed by Michael Zele, the outfit has a broad experience: it raced in World Series by Nissan, Superfund Euro3000 and was involved in several projects such as the stillborn Formula Superfund from 2005 until 2007. It also joined forces with german Motopark Academy (Formula Renault) in 2008 and Epsilon Barazi (LMS and British F3) in 2009, experiences that brought the team an impressive amount of data and knowledge.
At the occasion of the DTM pre-season launch.
The Formula 3 Euro Series presented itself in bright sunshine in the city centre of Wiesbaden. Daniel Juncadella (Prema Powerteam), who is leading the drivers’ standings with a six points’ margin over his team-mate and compatriot Roberto Merhi (Prema Powerteam), and Gianmarco Raimondo (Motopark Academy) represented the world’s toughest junior race series, which has seven rounds as a partner category of the DTM this year.
At Le Castellet
This weekend, the Formula 3 Euro Series is going to kick off the ninth season of its history – in France, at Le Castellet’s 5.791-kilometre circuit. And the entrants will have to cope with several innovations: for the first time since the Euro Series’ creation in 2003, series partner Kumho provides a completely new tyre spec – and the race weekends comprise three instead if two races.

The Formula 3 Euro Series planning for the 2011 season is running flat out.

In the rain at Hockenheim, Edoardo Mortara (Signature) confirmed the strong form he had already been showing throughout the season. Having been crowned as the new champion four weeks ago already, he scored his seventh win of the season at the 3.736 kilometres long Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg.
Signature: portrait of the Euro Series team champion
Jim Pla (ART Grand Prix) has won the 16th season round of the Formula 3 Euro Series at the 3.969 kilometres long Motorsport Arena Oschersleben. The rookie from France was followed home by Marco Wittmann (Signature) and Nicolas Marroc (Prema Powerteam). With his second place and the retirement of his opponent Valtteri Bottas (ART Grand Prix), Wittmann is now eight points ahead of Finn Bottas in the battle for runner-up spot. Already-crowned champion Edoardo Mortara (Signature) already retired on the opening lap.
Edoardo Mortara: portrait of the Euro Series champion
Edoardo Mortara (Signature) is the new Formula 3 Euro Series’ champion. For the 23-year old Italian, sixth place at Oschersleben was enough, as his only remaining rival Marco Wittmann (Signature) only finished one place behind Mortara. The Signature driver claimed the maiden drivers’ title in the Formula 3 Euro Series for his engine partner Volkswagen.
There is only one driver who could stop him on the way to championship: his team-mate Marco Wittmann.
In early September at Brands Hatch, Team Signature succeeded in securing the Formula 3 Euro Series team title early and now, the French squad’s driver Edoardo Mortara has got the chance of following his team’s footsteps by securing the drivers’ championship early on the coming race weekend, held at the 3.696-kilometre Motorsport Arena Oschersleben.
