Super Nova Racing announces title challengers

The Super Nova Racing Formula 3000 team is aiming to win the FIA International Formula 3000 title this year with drivers Patrick Friesacher and British Formula 3 Champion Alan van de Merwe.

Although he is only 23 Friesacher has been racing in Formula 3000 for the last three seasons thanks to backing from Red Bull. He won his first race last year in Hungary and finished fifth in the title race.

Van der Merwe moves to Formula 3000 after a successful 2003 season with the dominant Carlin Motorsport in British Formula 3.
