Hot on the heels of announcing an exciting new driver in Alex Fontana, the ART Grand Prix team is now pleased to announce his new teammate for the upcoming 2014 GP3 Series, Bristol Sport’s Dino Zamparelli. ART Grand Prix is eager to begin its new partnership with Bristol Sport** and the talented English driver as they lay the foundations for what will be an important season where the aim is to fight for a fifth consecutive title.
At just 21 years of age, Zamperelli is already equipped with a long and illustrious resume in motor racing after spending the last seven years behind the wheel in various championships. The list includes a full season in GP3 in 2013, two podium finishes in the illustrious F2 championship as well as taking championship glory on two occasions, once in the Ginetta Junior championship and once in the F.Renault BARC series.
Dino Zamparelli commented: “Obviously, I’m really excited to sign with ART Grand Prix as it’s a team with a lot of history. Four titles in a row in the team’s championship, two out of four possible in the drivers’ championship speaks for itself. I’m looking forward to my second season in the GP3 Series and to be working with ART Grand Prix because one thing is certain: I can learn a great deal with this team. My aim is to understand as quickly as possible how the team operates and to get the best out of the car, the team and my skills. Another good thing is that I know most of the circuits and that knowledge will help me come to grips with this new environment. My aim is simple, to go out and win as many races as possible.”
Frédéric Vasseur said: “Despite his young age, Dino has had extensive experience in motorsport, making his debut at just 15 years. His record is already very full with two titles and many victories. Therefore Dino has the profile that ART Grand Prix is looking for in a driver for their fifth season in GP3. In 2014, we will fight to keep our title and Dino has all the qualities to help enrich us and our record in a championship that has become a must on the international scene.”
On Zamparelli’s signing with the new team, Martin Griffiths (Chairman, Bristol Sport) commented: “It is fantastic news for Dino to have signed with ART Grand Prix. They are THE team to be with and we hope it will help him achieve his true potential. Backing sportspeople like Dino is exactly what Bristol Sport is about. Giving people the opportunity to participate in sport to the very best of their ability.”
** Dino Zamparelli is sponsored by Bristol Sport, which is part of the stable of sports companies owned by Stephen Lansdown.
