Campos Racing confirms GP3 line-up


Alex Palou, Konstantin Tereschenko and Steijn Schothorst will compete in the 2016 GP3 Series for Campos Racing.

Palou contested his debut GP3 Series with Campos last season which he finished in tenth place overall, following excellent performances in qualifying and claimed victory in the final race of the year by winning the Abu Dhabi Sprint Race.

Tereschenko was close to perfection in 2015 as the Russian racer claimed the Spanish Formula 3 championship and clinched the vice-champion spot in the Euroformula Open. Additionally he took part in the final three rounds of the 2015 GP3 season at Russia, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi.

The final seat will be occupied by Schothorst who will be racing in GP3 for the first time. The young Dutchman’s achievements include second place in the 2015 Renault Sport Trophy, second at the Zandvoort Masters in 2014 and fourth place in the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC also in 2014.

Preseason testing starts off at Estoril from the 22nd to the 24th March, before heading to Valencia from the 7th April to the 8th April and finally ending up in Barcelona on the 20th April to the 21st April.

The official race calendar is still yet to be confirmed.
