Oakes joins FMaster at Monza.

British F3 campaigner Oliver Oakes has been drafted into Vincenzo Sospiri's Euronova Racing ahead of this weekend's Formula Master round at Monza.

The 20-year old, who has contested a part-season in the International Class of this year's British F3 series, will test the car for the first time tomorrow [Thursday], before flying back to Britain to test for F3 frontrunner Carlin Motorsport at Donington Park, and then returning to Italy to make his debut at the final round of the Formula Master Championship.

Oakes acknowledges that he faces a stern challenge at the Italian Grand Prix venue, as he will not only be making his debut with a new team in an unfamiliar car and category, but also because he is competing for the first time on the legendary Monza circuit.

“Euronova hasn't had the strongest of seasons, unfortunately, but I'm hoping to reward them with a strong result,” he noted, “but I'll be fine. It's one of the most famous circuits in history, but I'm positive it's going to be a nice experience - although it will be a steep learning curve.”

Oakes will contest two races this weekend, with the first early on Saturday afternoon and the second on Sunday as FMaster again supports the popular World Touring Car Championship.
