British single-seater racer Dan Wells has announced he will compete in the Formula Pilota China Series in 2012.

Wells competed in the CERTINA Formula Renault 2.0 UK Championship for Atech Reid GP in 2011 and was building the budget to return to the series this year when the championship was axed due to low entry numbers.

The Salisbury-based racer considered his options and has now confirmed he will head East to compete in the Asia-based series with the KCMG team. Wells will travel across the continent during the eighteen race season and will get to compete on F1 circuits Shanghai (China) and Sepang (Malaysia) along the way. The Briton will compete against a host of Asian drivers as well as racers from across the world, including Argentina, France, Italy and Australia.

The Formula Pilota series was introduced in Asia last year after the success of the Formula Abarth championship in Europe. It has links to the Ferrari F1 team's Driver Academy, with the overall and Asian driver class champions receiving a four day evaluation at the Academy.

Commenting on his new move, Wells said: “I am excited by this opportunity. Asia holds so many new challenges and I am sure it is the place to be for me.”
