Sixteen year old Marlon Stockinger has joined Eurasia Motorsport for the 2008 Formula BMW Pacific Series. The BMW Scholarship awardee has just completed four days testing at the Sepang F1 circuit impressing the team with his speed and consistency. The first round of the series will support the Malaysian Grand Prix on March 22-23.
“Marlon will definitely be in contention for the Rookie Championship this year and from what we have seen so far in testing he could easily quickly develop into an overall race winner” reported Eurasia’s Mark Goddard. “He just gets quicker every time he gets in the car and his feedback has been extremely useful to the team”.
This will be Stockinger’s first experience of racing cars, his previous experience being gained in karts where he won championships in Philippine Rotax Max and 125 Open. He was also Asian Rotax and 125 Open Champion in 2006.
“The team is delighted to have Marlon on board and we look forward to a competitive year with a talented young driver.” Said Team Manager, Martin Quick.
