Noble Group backing for Bird.

British driver Sam Bird has received backing from the Noble Group for his entry into the Macau F3 Grand Prix this weekend in the Chinese enclave.

Fresh from his maiden season in the F3 Euroseries, where he finished eleventh overall in the championship standings, the Manor Motorsport driver heads to Macau looking to build on the encouraging result he gained on his Macau debut last year – when he took a fine sixth place finish.

The Noble Group is well known for having an influence at Macau, having backed a number of drivers in recent years in a variety of events during the annual end of season festival.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time here last year and ended up sixth overall and top rookie," Bird said. "This year I would like to go one better and win the race outright! However, street races are unpredictable and you need a slice of good fortune to go all the way, so you have to be quick, consistent, patient and stay out of trouble!"

"I'm very grateful to The Noble Group for giving me the opportunity to show what I can do in this competitive environment, and for including me in their hospitality plans with their guests. It sounds like a great weekend in prospect.”
