Jenzer Confirm Varhaug, Tuscher & Fong for Barcelona


Norwegian Pal Varhaug, Swiss driver Matheo Tuscher and Chinese driver Adderly Fong will form the 2014 GP3 series line-up for the Jenzer Motorsport team, at least for the first round in Barcelona. All three drivers tested for the team during the pre-season tests, and the team hope the three can race for the team for the whole year.

Varhaug won the first ever GP3 race in Barcelona back in 2010 for Jenzer and returns to the team and the series having competed for two events for Hilmer Motorsport in the GP2 Series in 2013. The twenty-three-year-old finished second in the 2012 Auto GP World Series to champion and current Rapax GP2 driver Adrian Quaife-Hobbs.

Tuscher has not competed regularly since 2012 where he finished second in the Formula 2 championship despite him being just fifteen years age when that season began. He made a one-off appearance for Zeta Corse in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series last year, but the announcement with Jenzer sees him return to full-time competitive racing, and is still only seventeen.

Twenty-four-year-old Fong will be racing his second season in GP3 this year having made his debut for Status Grand Prix in 2013. He had a best finish of ninth at Silverstone but struggled in the car for most of the season and will be hoping for better in 2014.

The season begins next weekend at the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain.
