Dominic Storey hopes to demonstrate what he will do in the 2007 Formula BMW Asia Series by ending on a high note at the final event of this year’s series in Zhuhai, China. This will be first time Formula BMW has visited the built for Formula One Circuit in Southern China and Storey hopes this will give him a competitive edge.
At the previous event, supporting the Formula One Grand Prix at the Shanghai Circuit, Storey finished on the podium with a fine third place in the first of the two races. The New Zealander is the least experienced driver in the field which puts his performance in perspective. He followed up his podium result with a fourth place finish in the second race at Shanghai. “We made a wrong tyre choice in the second damp race and Dominic did a great job to get the car home in fourth” reported Eurasia Motorsport’s Mark Goddard.
“To win in F.BMW as a complete novice is almost impossible in your first year of racing cars and both team and driver have worked on the basis that we will win in 2007. Dominic is now a regular podium finisher and I don’t think anyone would be surprised if he wins a race in Zhuhai” remarked Goddard. “Eurasia’s personnel have been involved in the early careers of many successful drivers, such as Narain Karthikeyan and Alex Yoong, and we all believe Dominic has got what it takes to get to the top of the sport.”
Storey will also be a key element in the team’s aim to win the Team Championship. Eurasia currently lie 39 points behind Meritus and with a possible 108 points to be won in Zhuhai a good performance from Dominic could hand the championship to his team.
