Nissany moves to Formula 3000

The 41-year-old Budapest-based Israeli driver Chanoch Nissany will make his F3000 debut in Hungary this weekend, replacing the Turkish driver Can Artam at Coloni Motorsport. Nissany, who tested for the team at the start of the year and recently had a run in Jordan F1 car at Silverstone, will become Israel's first F3000 driver. He will partner Patrick Friesacher in Hungary, Belgium and at the Italian Grand Prix. Nissany is a late-comer to the sport and has only been racing for a few years, mainly in Hungary but won the Formula 2000 category in 2003 and made a number of appearances in the World Series Light by Nissan Championship, his best result being seventh at the Lausitzring. Nissany is believed to be the first Israeli driver to win any championship in open-wheelers.
