DRIVER NEWS: Viktor Jensen, 20, has signed for Andy Kidby's Nexa Racing to compete in the International Class for the rest of the 2008 British F3 International Series.
"I am delighted that Viktor is joining Nexa Racing," said Andy Kidby, former F1 engineer and team principal of Nexa Racing, who are past FFord and FBMW British Champions and FRenault race winners.
"With Viktor's experience in F3 and the talent he has shown in the last couple of seasons he can undoubtedly get the results we are both looking for," "I'm thrilled to be driving for Nexa," said the Esher-based driver, Jensen. "It was touch and go for a long time whether we would actually be out this year, and it's great we have finally put something together. All I want to do right now is get on the track, and put myself back on the map."
"Of course it's going to be difficult, having not tested since December, but I was fast then so I know I've got the pace. It will take time to get used to the car, and for all the pieces of the puzzle to fall into place, but I'm aiming for a race wins by the end of the year."
The Visa Company and GAC Logistics sponsored driver, a Formula 3 National Class race winner last season, will be partnering young German driver Craig Reiff who is competing his debut season in the National Class. Jensen, who will join the grid at Croft for the next race weekend on 26 and 27 April, is managed by Hill Marketing's Brigitte Hill and Anthony Haas.
