Caterham, vd Garde set for City Racing debut

Giedo van der Garde and Caterham F1 will make their City Racing debuts in Rotterdam next month.
The Caterham F1 team has confirmed that its regular reserve driver, Giedo van der Garde, will be taking part in this year's City Racing Rotterdam event next month.

While both current Caterham race drivers have taken part in previous City Racing events - with Heikki Kovalainen and Vitaly Petrov driving Renaults in 2008 and 2010 respectively - GP2 frontrunner van der Garde will be making his debut on home soil in the 26 August event.

“For years I have been following City Racing Rotterdam and I'm delighted that the organisation has invited Caterham and me to take part," he admitted, "I will make sure that the huge crowd will not be short of excitement! Last weekend I took part in the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England and I am looking forward to showing all the fans the Caterham F1 car and we will make sure we put on a spectacular show.”

van der Garde, who will continue his ongoing quest for the GP2 Series title at Silverstone this weekend, joins a growing list of Dutch talent to have appeared at the street racing celebration, and won't be the only F1 pilot on display.

“We are happy to add Giedo and his team to our line-up," City Racing co-organiser Herman Vaanholt said, "He is joining a list of Dutch drivers who have taken part in our previous events including [Christijan] Albers, [Robert] Doornbos, [Ho-Pin] Tung and [Jos] Verstappen. We are proud that yet again a Dutch driver will be driving an F1 car at a City Racing event

"With Caterham F1 and Mercedes AMG Petronas team taking part, with Nico Rosberg driving, we are showing that, even in challenging times for the event business, City Racing keeps our standards at the highest possible level.”
