INDIANAPOLIS, December 11, 2000 - Eurointernational Inc. has completed a perfect USF3 Series winning all seven entered races with Brazilian driver Luciano Gomide, with seven poles and seven fastest race laps on the Dallara F300 VW sponsored by Impact Protection System.
22 years old American driver, John C. Antonino from Bakersfield, CA has been selected to be behind the wheels of the new Eurointernational Dallara F301 VW for the 2001 USF3 Series.
" Has been an incredible Season for our Team " said Owner Antonio Ferrari" and today's announcement allows having a jump-start for next USF3 Series. John Antonino has shown already an incredible talent during the first short test in our Dallara F300 and next several days of testing will give him the necessary experience with F3 cars before the start of the 2001 Season. I like to thank Robert Corsaro, VP of Giumarra Companies, who believes in John's talent and made this announcement possible. Since 1989 Robert has not been only a very important supporter of our Team but also a great personal friend; now we are looking forward to continue the winning tradition with Robert and John started this year with Luciano Gomide."
John Antonino will immediately start testing this week in Florida at Moroso, Sebring and Miami Homestead with the Dallara F300 VW used this year by Luciano Gomide and will continue the test program next January at Phoenix, Las Vegas and Laguna Seca with the new Dallara F301 VW.
" It's a dream to drive for Eurointernational " said John Antonino"Now, I need learn a lot on F3 cars coming from heavy Late Model Stock Cars. The Team gave to Luciano a perfect car this year, and with the scheduled testing program we will be competitive already at the beginning of the next season. I like to thank Robert Corsaro and Antonio Ferrari for believing in me and making this program possible".
Eurointernational Inc. has already confirmed the 2000 Team structure under Crew Chief Nicola Sgotto and likely will announce Luciano Gomide's 2001 racing program soon.
" The Team did a fantastic job this year and a lot of the success belongs to Nicola's work and experience" added Ferrari" Luciano Gomide shows to USA what a Dallara F3 can do winning races with poles and fastest laps. We are working on a program to continue to run Luciano in the US and in International events, at the same time have Luciano Gomide assist John Antonino's 2001 racing program in USF3."
USF3 has just announced its second season with the 2001 Schedule of 14 races in USA and Canada.
