Filippi and Carroll in GP2 reshuffle
20 July 2011 – Adam Carroll will make his GP2 return at the Nürburgring, rejoining the Super Nova team with which he won on the first ever weekend for the series at Imola in 2005. In the process, Luca Filippi switches to Coloni and replaces the departed Kevin Ceccon.
Northern Irishman Carroll (top) last raced in GP2 in 2008, with his final two races being a double retirement at Monaco. To date, he has recorded five victories between 2005 and 2007. In moving to Coloni, Filippi partners Romania’s Michael Herck.
“So, for me, thinking about Luca as a stand-in was a pretty natural choice. Pushing the best talents from our country has always been our philosophy and I feel that Luca fits the frame perfectly.”
