Will Bratt will take on the challenge of the famous Spa-Francochamps circuit this weekend as the Spanish F3 Championship heads overseas to Belgium for the second round of the year.

The 20-year-old, who is racing for the EmiliodeVillota.com Motorsport squad this year, made a good start to his 2008 campaign at Jarama three weeks ago and after the opening two rounds, is a highly creditable sixth in the driver standings - just eight points shy of the outright championship lead.

Emerging from pre-event practice at Jarama with the fastest time of all, only problems with a delaminated rear tyre Bratt from challenging for a place on the front couple of rows on the grid, although he went on to finish fourth and fifth in the two races.

"It's going to be an awesome experience to race at Spa, it's one of the most spectacular circuits in the world so I can't wait to have my first run on the track during practice next Friday," Bratt said. "It was unfortunate we had a couple of problems at Jarama but we still came away with two good results.

"Obviously, I'd love to get my first Formula 3 podium next weekend but we have to be realistic and take into account this will be my first ever run at Spa - the practice on Friday will only be two, half hour sessions. I'm confident enough in my ability though, and also that of the team, to think if things go well we should be in a position to challenge strongly."
