Campos Racing and GulfSport Racing pursue their collaboration this season
Last year, Formula Gulf 1000 and Campos Racing announced a partnership, in order to provide viable career path for young drivers. GulfSport Racing’s efforts to develop the world’s most cost-effective driver development program led to partner Campos Racing, a leading European race team led by former Formula 1 racer Adrián Campos.
As the Spanish squad takes part in series such as GP2, Formula E, GP3, EuroFormula Open, WTCC and TCR International Series, Campos Racing offers for a second consecutive year the opportunity to further develop young drivers experience at a much higher level with a leading team.
Thanks to this agreement, the 2015-2016 FG1000 Champion will earn a F.3 test with Campos Racing with a Dallara 312 model. And, in order to perfectly prepare the test, the Champion will be given the opportunity to work on Campos Racing’s professional racing simulator, as well as to join Campos Academy for a 3-day programme, including physical and mental preparation, technical lectures and driver coaching. Every fundamental part needed to become a complete driver.

“We are delighted to be able to carry on our partnership with Campos Racing for a second season. With 30 drivers from 15 countries having come through the Formula Gulf training program the benefit to the championships home territory drivers is obvious. However our partnership with Campos Racing now makes it clear that the benefits are being realized further a field into Europe. Campos Racing’s junior drivers will now be able to engage in a full winter racing/training program with Formula Gulf, while back in Europe their competitors will be struggling to just hunt down some dry testing laps, the advantages are clear!
It is very exciting for us to be associated with such a top international race team like Campos Racing and we are looking forward again to helping them produce some of the world´s best young racing talent.
The F3 test that is offered to our Champion by Campos is a fantastic incentive and a valuable insight into the next step of the formula racing ladder.”
Adrian Campos, CEO Campos Racing
“I am delighted to continue working with Formula Gulf, I am sure this is the right way to develop talents in the Middle East in the same way as we do in Europe. It´s very important for us to collaborate with such a serious and professional championship as it is Formula Gulf.”
