Toyota pulls Briscoe from F3000

TOYOTA has pulled protege Ryan Briscoe out of his role in the International F3000 series with team Nordic Racing.

Toyota is saying the move will allow Briscoe to become more involved in the development of the Formula One program, but his performances in 2002 may have helped the decision. The 20 year old Australian has had a miserable year in F3000 so far, having yet to score a point in the series. He will compete in the German Formula 3 series for the remainder of the year, while his role in the F1 testing program increases.

Briscoe's first F3 race will take place at the Lausitzring on Sunday.
