Young racing prodigy, 18-year-old Arjun Maini confirmed that he will race with Team Motopark at the 2016 Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix on November 17.

Maini who commenced his 2016 season in the Formula 3 European Championships with T-Sport will return to the Formula 3 European Championship at Macau after a brief stint in the GP3 with Jenzer Motorsport where he currently stands amongst the top 10 drivers.

This is Maini's second attempt in Macau, post contesting the 2015 European F3 season with T Sport where he finished in the top ten.

Commenting on his association with the historically reputed Motopark, Maini shared, "Racing in Macau has always been amongst my more favourite experiences, the long straights and the narrow passages allow me to reach high speeds with the tact of keeping utmost control of the car.

Macau also has the reputation of attracting the best drivers from the world, as a strong performance here really puts you on the radar of the team principals - making this weekend challenging yet extremely satisfying, post a strong performance."

Maini said that the switch between Formula 3 and GP 3 or any car will not affect a strong and mature driver such as himself. The youngster is confident of his ability to adapt to the car and the circumstances.

Meanwhile, Team Motopark welcomes Arjun and Principal, Timo Rumpfkeil shared, "We have followed his career closely and experienced some good tests with him at the end of 2015, where he showed very good speed and a mature approach.

It is of course valuable to have a driver with experience in Macau such as Arjun. He had a clear run there last year and we are keen that he will be in a strong position to have a good result in Macau this year with us.”
