Richard Antinucci will join the Promatecme F3 team for the remainder of the British F3 season and will make his 2003 race debut with the team at Thruxton this weekend [16/17 August].

Antinucci will contest the British F3 events at Thruxton, Spa, Donington Park and Brands Hatch and will hopefully stay with the team for the end of season races in Macau and Korea. He contested the Far East races in 2002 with the Promatecme team.

"I'm delighted that Richard has decided to join us for the rest of the season," says team boss Chris Weller. "We're looking forward to working with him."

Antinucci will have a shake-down run at Silverstone on Thursday before taking part in the official test at Thruxton on Friday. He will then race as part of the three-car Promatecme F3 squad at Thruxton alongside Fairuz Fauzy and Scholarship class racer Can Artam.
