Campos Racing unveiled today that Adrian Campos Jr. is the second confirmed driver for their 2011 Auto GP campaign.

22 years-old, the Spanish driver will hence make his comeback in European motorsport, after contesting the whole Indy Lights Series in 2010. Campos Jr. showed all his talent in this American experience, closing the season in 6th position and boasting some great performances on the ovals, despite being a rookie in that kind of competition: this was worth the win of the "Most Improved Driver" Trophy, awarded to Campos Jr. during the prizegiving gala.

With this agreement, Adrian also makes a comeback in the team that launched him in single-seater racing: from 2004 to 2009 the Valencia-born driver clinched 9 wins and 32 podium finishes with Campos Racing, emerging as one of the most consistent drivers in Spanish and European F3. With such a record and considering that thanks to his american experience he's quite used to high powered cars, Campos Jr. will undoubtedly be among the ones to watch for the exciting season that is going to start in one month.

The team is now considering various options for the third car, and will soon announce the driver who will complete the 2011 line-up.


Enzo Coloni:
"I'm delighted in having Adrian in the Championship. He proved to be very talented in the past seasons, and he comes from a different background compared to his competitors, having contested the Indy Lights in 2010: in his debut season in America he was really good, so I'm very curious to see how he will cope with the Auto GP car. I'm also happy to see that a driver who has the IndyCar Series as his main aim has chosen Auto GP as a step to get there. I think it tells a lot on the high consideration that drivers are showing for our Series".

Adrian Campos:
"Throughout his career, Adrian always showed a great talent in adapting to new cars. That's why I'm sure that his learning period on the car will be very short, and that he will quickly be able to challenge for what is both his and our aim: race wins".

Adrian Campos Jr.:
"When I tried the Auto GP car in Valencia I immediately felt that it was very similar to the American-style single seaters, but delivering even more power. It was exciting and impressive at the same time, and I'm sure that driving it for a whole season I will learn a lot, building up an experience that will be useful in order to progress to my final aim, the IndyCar Series".
