Jon Lancaster has joined Super Nova Racing to compete in the remainder of the Auto GP season, beginning this weekend at Brno.

The Briton tested for Campos Racing at Barcelona pre-season and had been set to race for the Spanish team at the season opener. However, he then completed a deal to race in the FIA Formula Two Championship.

He will now replace Adrian Zaugg as teammate to Luca Filippi at Super Nova.

“In Barcelona I really loved the car, so I'm delighted to be here,” said Lancaster. “I'm looking forward to tomorrow's first practice, I will use it to get back into the pace and get acquainted with the car again. I have good expectations as I know the track quite well, so I should be able to push quickly.”

“Jon is one of Britain’s most amazing talents and we have been following his career since the very first years,” said Super Nova’s John Sears. “Having him with us is a huge pleasure, and we hope that we’ll be able to help him to achieve the results he deserves.

“We think that we have what it takes to give him a very competitive car, and there's no doubt that together with Filippi they make one of the strongest line-ups in the championship, so we have very high expectations.”
