Giebler moves to Den Bla Avis

American racer Phil Giebler will make his Formula 3000 debut this weekend with David Sears's Den Bla Avis, replacing the British Formula 3 Champion Robbie Kerr, who does not have the finance to continue. Giebler will become the third American in the FIA International F3000 Championship alongside Townsend Bell (Arden International ) and Derek Hill (Super Nova).

Giebler is one of the few young Americans who have made their careers in Europe, starting out in France but then taking part in F3 events in Britain, Spain and even in Germany. He has been living in Europe full-time since 1999.
