Canadian Bruno Spengler heads to Holland this weekend fully intending to step up onto the F3 Euroseries podium, just as he did two weeks ago in Austria.

The eighth round of the Euroseries takes place at Zandvoort on the North Sea coast and, as the Dutch circuit has already played hosted to the prestigious non-championship Marlboro Masters, many drivers reckon their chances are good second time around.

Spengler, a member of the Mercedes-Benz Junior team and one of the three drivers representing the French ASM outfit sees no reason to doubt his podium potential as, with eight different winners since the start of the season, the Euroseries has proven to be extremely competitive.

"I competed in the F3 Masters, so I know the Zandvoort circuit quite well," the 19-year old rookie Canadian reckoned, "The circuit is quite wide and pretty tricky. It is made of a succession of slow and fast curves. The problem with our F3 cars is to be equally quick in all sectors. However, the layout of the Zandvoort track is quite similar to that of the A1-Ring, where I finished on the podium two weeks ago, so, for me, things are promising."

After a week of intense physical training in the Austrian Alps with the trainers of the Mercedes-Benz team, Spengler is ready for action.

"It was raining and cold in Austria last week, and I caught a cold, but now I'm fine," said the Quebec-based driver, "My objective is to score at least one victory before the conclusion of the season, and I'll be doing my very best to win my maiden F3 race in the very near future. I have to concentrate on two or three small points this weekend at Zandvoort, but I am ready and confident to perform well."
