Anderson to head Status GP3 project

Gary Anderson to act as technical consultant for Status Grand Prix for the 2010 GP3 season
Status Grand Prix has announced a deal which will see former F1 designer Gary Anderson take up a role as technical consultant for the inaugural GP3 season in 2010.

Status is one of ten teams to have secured slots on the grid for the first season of the new series and Anderson will now continue his work with the team, having previously held a role during its time running the Irish team in A1GP.

“GP3 is a new challenge for everyone, with a new car and new tyres,” he said. “A team of Status GP's calibre will be very competitive. I look forward to an interesting season.”

Working with Anderson at the helm of Status Grand Prix's race team will be Simon Cayzer, who has Formula One experience with Jordan Grand Prix and managed the Piquet Sports team in the GP2 Series before joining Status GP in 2007.

Status shareholders Mark Gallagher, David Kennedy and John Hynes will be joined in the GP3 venture by the team's majority shareholder, Canadian Teddy Yip.

“We are thrilled to be taking part in this fantastic new series,” said Yip. “GP3 will be fiercely competitive and is designed to give young drivers a great chance to progress their careers towards F1. We believe Status GP can provide the ideal environment for them to do just that.”
