Robert Doornbos and Narain Karthikeyan join Superleague Formula

Monday, March 22 2010

Ex-F1 drivers Robert Doornbos and Narain Karthikeyan will join fellow former Grand Prix racer Franck Montagny in the line-up for this year's Superleague Formula by Sonangol competition.

2010 marks Doornbos' second season in Superleague, after the Dutchman represented AC Milan in 2008, and he will now race for Brazilian club Corinthians.

"I am honoured to drive for one of the most famous clubs in the world," said Doornbos. "Superleague Formula has a very competitive field in 2010."

Doornbos will face stiff competition, however, in the shape of Superleague debutant Narain Karthikeyan, who joins PSV Eindhoven in 2010.

Karthikeyan became the first Indian driver to compete in F1, before undertaking two successful seasons in the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport - taking double victory at Brands Hatch, a new venue for Superleague Formula this season.

Other drivers to be confirmed in this year's Superleague competition include Formula Renault 3.5 graduate Chris Van Der Drift, who will race for Greek team Olympiacos, and AC Milan signing Yelmer Buurman.

Brands Hatch will host Superleague Formula by Sonangol for the first time on the Grand Prix circuit on 31 July/1 August. Tickets are now on sale from £25 for adults, with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information call 0870 950 9000 or click on the link below.
