Daniel Ricciardo, a race winner in the 2006 F.BMW Asia Series with Eurasia Motorsport, will test the Australian A1GP car at the official Silverstone Circuit test on August 28th. The Australian A1GP team have given Ricciardo the opportunity as part of their rookie development program. F.BMW Asia and Eurasia really can make a difference to a driver’s career.
Other F.BMW Eurasia Motorsport graduates include Aaron Lim who recently won on his debut in V6 Asia at Sentul Circuit and Dado Pena and Tyson Sy, both race winners in Asian Formula Three. The latter is now starring in the Star Mazda Series. Moreno Soeprapto who raced for the team in 2004 has gone on to duplicate Tyson Sy’s feat of winning the Asian F3 Promotions Class and take overall race wins in the same Formula. Along with Lim he has also been a rookie driver in A1GP.
Dominic Storey made a big impression with Double R Racing in his recent F.BMW UK debut whilst another Eurasia graduate, Robert Boughey, has been starring in the Asian Formula Renault Series.
