Lightbulb FIA GT: GT3 - FIA grant Ascari green light.

Saturday, 28th January 2006

Ascari has been given the green light for its return to race track this season following a meeting with the FIA technical working group in Paris.

The Damax team has already confirmed it will use the Ascari KZR1 for its assault on the new FIA GT3 European Championship with testing having started last weekend with a shakedown of the new car at Silverstone by drivers Aaron Scott and Nick Adams.

"The recent 'shake-down' at Silverstone confirmed that we have an excellent base package, first impressions are really good," Scott said of the session. "The handling is fantastic."

Adams, the 1989 World (C2) Sportscar champion, was equally impressed.

"The Ascari's pace through Maggotts was very impressive," he said. "It was just about the quickest thing out there, humbling a couple of very quick Porsche Cup runners with ease."

The move into the GT3 series follows last year's success in the Spanish GT championship, where Ascari challenged for class honours in a car that is soon to hit the road in the guise of the stunning new A10.

The five-round GT3 series kicks off Silverstone, with further events at Oschersleben, Spa, Magny-Cours and Imola.
