Eurointernational in the Italian Formula 3 Championship with Gabriel Chaves and Mygale M-10

22/02/2010 - Eurointernational is delighted to announce the participation to the Italian Formula 3 Championship with the American driver Gabriel Chaves and the Mygale M-10 FPT.

"It is very important to me" stated Gabriel Chaves, 16 years old, "to face the new championship with Eurointernational, the team with whom I have always been on the podium in the Formula BMW Americas, winning 5 races and the 2009 title with record laps on all circuits of the American championship. The Italian Formula 3 Championship is very difficult and races are held on new tracks for me, but Eurointernational is a team that races only to win and has a technical structure with a lot of experience. I know very well teams' engineers and I shared the entire season 2009 with them. I would like to thank all my sponsors, my family and Antonio Ferrari for allowing me to race."

"I believed in Gabriel Chaves and in his great talent since the World final of the 2008 Formula BMW" Team Principal Antonio Ferrari explains "and I helped him in all aspects in 2009, working perfectly with him and winning the Formula BMW Americas. I am very happy to continue in the Italian Formula 3 the work already started, providing Gabriel with everything that is needed to keep on winning. Our technical director Nicola Sgotto will have at his side Ferdinando Ravarotto, this will renew an historic and winning couple of 90s that has already been working with Gabriel since 2008. As for the sportive part, I will avail myself of the collaboration of my brother Alessandro Ferrari.

Before entering the Italian Formula 3 championship I wanted to find a partner to build the car" concludes Ferrari "in a way not to enter a championship as a simple client and I am grateful to Bertrand Decoster, managing director of the Mygale Group, for starting a development and direct assistance programme with Eurointernational for 2010, after the 53 victories, 5 drivers titles and a Formula BMW World Championship won by our team with a chassis from the French manufacturer.

The Italian Formula 3 championship is going to be very tough but, as in the past, we are always ready to face new programs with that humility and professionalism that allowed us to win 87 races and 10 teams and drivers championships in USF3, FR200 NA, FRV6 Eurocup, Formula BMW USA/Americas - Europe and World Final in the last decade in every continent."

Eurointernational will have 2 new Mygale M-10 powered by FPT at its disposal and is negotiating with several drivers to decide the team mate of Gabriel Chaves. An intense testing programme is also scheduled before the beginning and throughout the 2010 season.
