South American F3 champion, Danilo Dirani has announced that he will take part in the British F3 championship in 2004.

In a statement released by Dirani, he revealed that he will complete with championship winning team, Carlin Motorsport, who this season finished one-two in the drivers' series, with Alan van der Merwe and Jamie Green.

Dirani will team up with Clivio Piccione and Alvaro Parente.
