Sevilla FC will replace the entry previously fielded by Al Ain who, after having participated in the first two races and made one podium in Zolder, wont be racing for the rest of this season.
Spanish League outfit Sevilla will return to Superleague Formula this season. The teams colours were not present on the grid during the opening races at Magny Cours (France) and Zolder (Belgium), but will be back for the third round of the championship which takes place this weekend at British circuit, Donington Park. The Andalucian teams car will be driven by a man who has proved to be a revelation so far this season, the Argentine driver Esteban Guerrieri. The young South American was the find of the weekend at Zolder where he won the second race, his maiden career victory in the category at his first Superleague Formula weekend.
The arrival of Sevilla FC sees the club further boosting the Spanish presence in Superleague Formula, which includes the undisputed leader of the series, the Alicante-born Adrián Vallés, who was the winner of both race weekends, held so far.
For José María del Nido, President of the Sevilla FC, the clubs return to Superleague Formula is one of the biggest events of the summer for both the team and the city.
To be back in Superleague Formula is as big a message as we can give, not just to the fans of Sevilla but to the entire city of Sevilla. The colours of our club will again project the name and image of the city to an international audience. Sevilla Football Club has successfully showcased the name of the city at the biggest sporting events in the world and now its time to promote the city at the best circuits in Europe, said the Sevilla President.
The presence of a young Argentine driver at the wheel of our car helps to underline the international impact of our colours and our team, which is greatly admired at a world level by many players who want to wear the shirt of Sevilla FC. The famous Argentine passion coupled with a love of football and motorsport, will make it interesting to follow our car in the coming races. This young driver is following in the footsteps of some of the legends of Argentine motorsport such as Fangio, González and Reutemann. We hope that the first of many trophies to be won by Sevilla both on the pitch and on the track, will be secured on Sunday by Esteban Guerreri at the wheel of our car.
