Malaysian driver Fairuz Fauzy has signed to drive for Menu Motorsport in his second season in the top class of the British Formula Three Championship for 2004.

The 21-year old intends to use the year to build on the experience he gained with Team SYR and Promatecme in 2003, and is already looking forward to working with Menu boss Mike Baker.

"I am confident that Mike and the team can give me the stability I need to develop," Fauzy said, "2004 is going to be an important year for me, and being with a team like Menu Motorsport will give me the confidence to show what I can do."

Baker, who ran Rob Austin, Adam Carroll, Robert Doornbos and Will Davison to good effect in 2003, said that he was looking for good things from his latest signing.

"We hope to have a good year, and we are really happy to sign Fairuz," he said, "I think he will surprise a few people.

"Above all, we are looking to have a settled year with Fairuz - and looking to do some winning."

Fairuz will get his first run in Menu's Dallara-Opel when the British F3 testing ban is lifted on the 15 February. The identity of any possible team-mate remains unclear at present.
