Jimmy Eriksson has re-joined Koiranen GP for the upcoming GP3 season for a second consecutive season after finishing fourth last year.

The 23-year-old Swedish driver notched up two victories in 2014 along with three additional podiums and two pole positions on his way to fourth in the GP3 drivers' standings. Eriksson made the switch from Status Grand Prix during last season's winter period and returns with the Finnish team with eyes on the drivers' crown.

"I'm really looking forward to continuing with Koiranen GP in GP3," he said. "We showed already last year what we are capable of and I have no doubt that we will be fighting for podiums and victories this year."

The Swedish driver joins Chinese-Canadian driver Adderly Fong and Welshman Matt Parry at Koiranen GP.

Fong will make his debut in the series and is already raring to go, aiming to use his rookie season as a vital building block to his racing career.

"I'm very happy that I will be racing in the GP3 Series alongside F1 again," Fong. "I'm very delighted I will be with Koiranen GP as I know they are competitive. It is also my first time competing in the full Series, so I'm looking to achieve positive results and securing as many points as I can."

Parry completes the Koiranen line-up, after graduating from the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup. The 21 year old driver, youngest of the 2015 team's line-up, will step up to the GP3 Series in 2015 for his rookie season.

"I'm delighted to finally be a part of the Koiranen Team. It's been a difficult decision which Series to compete in for 2015," Parry said. "Initially I felt the need to 'make good' a disappointing 2014 season in Renault 2.0 Eurocup but a late opportunity arose to challenge for the GP3 Series and all the advice was to move onto the next level.

"I'm at my fittest ever and completely prepared to take on the challenge. I've worked with Afa and his team before and there was an immediate rapport which I'm certain we can replicate and make a positive bid for this series."

The team's first pre-season test with be held in Estoril on 18-19 March before they head to Barcelona for the 2015 season opener over the 8-10 May.
