Strong interest in Ravenol Media Award

18. August 2014

“Young drivers get a chance to prepare for the next steps in their racing career in a professional environment. They expand their skills as Formula drivers working closely with the racing cars, the engineers and the media.” This is what the Formula 3 Association is about. However, the ATS Formula 3 Cup is also dedicated to being the general qualification for motorsports away from the track. That is why, the lubricant manufacturer Ravenol and the Formula 3 Association created the Ravenol Media Award. Running until the end of October, the project is attracting strong interest.

ArtLine plans comeback

Team ArtLine, a former ATS Formula 3 Cup competitor, plans its comeback in the fastest German single-seater series. In the coming year, the now Germany based squad around Team Manager Andrey Stepanoff wants to compete in both the Cup and the Trophy ranking. The team is expected to enter a total of three cars for the 2013 season.

Team ArtLine was a successful ATS Formula 3 Trophy contender in the 2009 and 2010 seasons and won the titles in these years courtesy of Sergey Chukanov and Riccardo Brutschin respectively. The team attracted particular attention as it used its in-house designed and built ArtTech single-seater. This vehicle has been enhanced, since then, and is ready for another Trophy-title campaign.

Nonetheless, Team Principal Shota Abkhazava wants to mainly focus on the Cup ranking, next year. “We would love to enter two Dallara F311 single-seaters with Volkswagen power. Currently, the situation looks quite promising and we are negotiating with several drivers.”  

2013 will be the 14th year in the history of Team ArtLine. In this period of time, the squad succeeded in winning the Russian Formula 3 title four times – inter alia with Vitali Petrov who is a Formula 1 driver, today. Five times, the vice-champion also was racing for Team ArtLine. And the team has close bonds with Mikhail Aleshin who won the 2010 Renault World Series 2.3 title.

With the new team headquarters in Germany – located in state-of-the-art facilities in Hofheim/Lampertheim – Team ArtLine underlines its concrete plans to make its ATS Formula 3 Cup comeback, next year.
