Correa joins Litespeed

Burgeoning British Formula 3 team Litespeed has completed its first signing for the 2009 season after agreeing terms with Victor Correa.

Correa comes to the team following a successful season in the British Formula Ford Championship, the 19-year-old finishing fourth in the standings with two race wins to his name.

A former karting star in his native Brazil, Litespeed technical director Steve Kenchington was delighted to welcoming Correa on board.

“We are delighted that Victor will be driving Litespeed's R1 this season,' he said. “Moving onto British F3 is a natural progression for someone with his ability and level-headed temperament. Victor has a long career ahead of him and we are looking forward to an extremely exciting championship in 2009.”

Litespeed, who made their debut mid-way through last year with the unique SLC-R1 chassis, head into the new season confident of a substantial improvement having benefited from the development prowess of former champion Robbie Kerr.

With that in mind, team manager Nino Judge is confident they can establish themselves as immediate contenders.

“The team has worked tirelessly since the end of last season, testing with British F3 champion Robbie Kerr throughout the winter. We quickly shook off the mantra of 'new team on the grid', with people recognising us as a professional outfit from the outset.

“Our engineers and drivers are 100 per cent committed to making 2009 a year to remember – and to bringing a quantity of silverware back to Norfolk in 2009!”
