Lima To Test With Two F3 Championship Teams At Pembrey This Week

Brazilian driver Gustavo Lima will spend two days testing this week at the Pembrey circuit in Carmarthenshire, Wales. Lima, already in the UK following Round 6 of the BRDC F4 Championship at Brands Hatch last weekend, will have the chance to work alongside two top F3 Championship teams, Double R Racing and Carlin.

On Tuesday, Lima will have the opportunity to drive the Dallara F312 chassis used by Double R Racing . Founded by Kimi Räikkönen and Steve Robertson, the team is now owned and headed by Anthony Hieatt and has a strong record and reputation in the world of motorsport, working with such talents as Felipe Nasr, Bruno Senna, Mike Conway and Roberto Merhy.

The 18-year-old will then spend the next day driving the Dallara F308 with Carlin Motorsport, a British team founded by Trevor Carlin and Martin Stone in 1996. Carlin has a strong presence in youth racing as part of the British F3, European F3, GP2, GP3 and World Series by Renault championships. Drivers previously associated with Carlin are Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg, Daniel Ricciardo, Will Power, Felipe Nasr, Antonio Felix da Costa, Danilo Dirani and Takuma Sato, among many others.

The young Brazilian already has some experience in F3 as last December, he tested for two days at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia as well as then competing in the F3 Brazil Open Championship at Interlagos in January and the Brasilia F3 South American round in May, earning himself a victory.

Mark Blundell, CEO of MB Partners:

“These two test days will be a great opportunity for Gustavo to work with championship F3 teams and see how they operate. The main purpose of tomorrow and Wednesday is for us to get Gustavo more miles in an F3 car and then look forward to put a plan of action in place for 2015.”

Gustavo Lima:

"I'm very anxious to get back to driving an F3 car. I've competed in F3 races in South America and tested with Lotus at the end of last year, and now I look forward to this week as more of a challenge because I will have the chance to work with two champion teams such as Double R and Carlin. What a golden opportunity to show my work, and learn as much as possible. I am very happy and confident that I can acquire a huge amount of experience during the activities this week. "
