Conor Daly on GP3 testing

Now about to embark upon his second full season of European racing, America’s Conor Daly won in karts and Star Mazda before splitting his time between Indy Lights and the GP3series in 2011.   He seems likely to join the GP3 Champions, Lotus GP (or ART, as they were formally known) for 2012  and spoke to me on-line from his home in Indiana after his first major test with the team.

Alexander Sims touches new heights

Following a strong 2011 season, in which he scored a win and four podium finishes in the GP3 Series, plus an F3 win at Silverstone, Britain’s Alexander Sims was recently contracted to the prestigious McLaren Young Driver programme.

Mitch Evans on his recent NZ wins

Mitch Evans sprung to prominence with a debut GP3 win at the Spanish GP in 2011 and thus heads into 2012 as a major GP3 front-runner. Supported by Red Bull Racing’s Mark Webber, and contracted to the MW Arden GP3 team, Mitch nonetheless returned to his native New Zealand in January and early February to contest the last two rounds of the ultra-competitive Toyota NZ Race Series. He won first time out, at Hampton Downs, and was leading the New Zealand Grand Prix, at Manfield, when an electrical problem robbed him of victory only eight laps from the finish.
