Hitech confirms Buller, Dias and Foresti
23 February 2010 – Hitech Racing has confirmed that Will Buller, Gabriel Dias and Lucas Foresti will be its three drivers as the outfit continues preparations for the upcoming season. The verification came in the form of the team's official launch, attended by several personalities.
With Hitech aiming high for this season, the team has officially launched its 2010 line-up at its Buckingham facilities, with Brawn GP Formula 1 Team Manager Ron Meadows being one of the invitees to join Ryan Sharp, a leading GT racer and Hitech's new team boss.
"I had two difficult years in Formula BMW but they have really helped me to improve as a driver and I am ready for the new challenge," Buller commented. "I spoke to Ryan about F3 and he explained what Hitech were doing and when I drove the car, I found it really suited my style. The whole team wants to push to be successful and I believe they are the best team to be with."
"Hitech are the team I wanted to be with and I feel they will give me a great chance this season," added Dias, who finished runner-up in last year's National Class. "I have full confidence in the team, in the car and in the engineer I will be working with this season - it's the opportunity of my life."
Foresti joins the BF3 battle after competing in Brazilian Formula 3 in 2009 and knows that consistency will be tough to achieve. "British F3 will provide me with more testing and more running than anywhere else, to help me improve as a driver," he explained. "I spoke to Ryan and looked at the team and am confident in what they can do this season.
"There are a lot of good drivers in British F3 and I hope to learn a lot. There will be difficulties along the way but they are things you learn from. As a driver, all I want to do is win and go for the title but I will be looking to learn as much as possible this year and what comes, comes."
