Super Nova Forced To Miss Auto GP Round At Oschersleben

1 Mins read

Super Nova Racing will miss this weekend's Auto GP round at Oschersleben in Germany after both of its drivers were ruled out of the meeting.

Jon Lancaster, who won for the team at the previous round at Donington Park, picked up a minor ankle injury whilst training for a triathlon he is competing in later in the year. Doctors have told him not to drive for two weeks.

Auto GP points leader Luca Filippi meanwhile will be racing in the GP2 Series round at the Hungaroring. The team have been left without enough time to find a replacement driver for Lancaster.

“It is a shame that we have been forced into this decision through events out of our control, especially because of the momentum that we have built up in the Auto GP series,” said team manager John Sears.

“Fortunately Jon’s injury is not too serious so I am sure he will be back to full fitness very soon and Luca will be ready to give it his all in the final two rounds, so I am still confident that we can come out on top of this championship in the end and we have to look at this as merely a stumbling block.”

The team will be in action as usual in the GP2 Series races at the Hungaroring.
