Bakkerud signed for GP2 Asia
Christian Bakkerud became the first driver to confirm his seat with the team for the new GP2 Asia Series which starts in January 2008. Having tested with Super Nova this week at Paul Ricard, the entire team are looking forward to working together with the young Danish driver.
Team Owner and Principal David Sears said of this union "“I think that Christian is a genuine team player and has slotted into Super Nova very well.. We want to give him a real opportunity through testing and the GP2 Asia series drive to demonstrate his true potential in the main GP2 series for 2008.”
“Our main focus initially is about restore Christian’s confidence in himself which we feel is already improving during the first couple of days of testing. We enjoy working with Christian and we want him to finish winter testing with a smile on his face and with some much better results than before.”
With this weeks testing under his belt, Christian said “I'm really pleased to have secured a deal with Super Nova for the GP2 Asia Series. The team have a great pedigree in GP2 and before that in F3000 and we know they have the experience and resources to compete for podiums and wins. This is a great opportunity for me and I am really looking forward to continue to work with them.”
“My goal is clearly going to aim for podium finishes and race wins. I have learnt a lot in my first and very troublesome season in the GP2 series but I am ready to move on and prove myself in a different team environment. Things are finally falling into place and I can assure you that I will grab this opportunity with both hands!”
