Eurasia Motorsport graduate and 2010 Formula BMW Pacific Champion, Richard Bradley, has landed one of the most sought after seats in F3 racing having signed with TOM’S for the 2011 All-Japan F3 Championship. Once again the combination of Eurasia Motorsport and the newly re-named JK Racing Asia Series have proven to be a credible career step for aspiring young F1 stars.
S. Koumi, General Manager of the Racing Department and Overseas Operations at TOM’S remarked “We are very happy to have Richard on board. We followed his progress during the 2010 Formula BMW Pacific series and noticed his outstanding performance.” Bradley will be attempting to emulate fellow Eurasia graduate, Daniel Ricciardo, who won a F3 championship in his first year of trying. In Daniel’s case it was the British Championship. Ricciardo is now the Friday driver for the Toro Rosso F1 Team.
Mark Goddard of Eurasia reported “We were happy to keep our friends at TOM’S updated with Richard’s performances last year and I am sure Richard will repay their faith in him with his results on the track this season”
Edward Bradley, father of Richard, states “We are both very grateful to Eurasia Motorsport. Not only did they give Richard the best possible foundation for his car racing career, particularly with their emphasis on driver and data coaching, but they managed to do this, and to provide a Championship winning car, in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. We really enjoyed our time with them.”
The JK Racing Asia Series kicks off at the Sepang F1 GP on April 10th. The championship winning team has one car left to fill for this season and interested drivers should contact the team to book a space on the final test of the year at Sepang on February 28-March 3 and March 7-10.
