Rodolfo AvilaMacanese Motorsport rising star Rodolfo Avila will join to Performance Racing for the first official British F3 International Series test of the 2007 session at Pembrey Circuit (Wales) on February 19/20/21.

Avila aims to race in British F3 Championship Class this season and he is working hard to get the necessary budget to accomplish his mission. As testing restrictions Series Regulations for 2007 prohibit circuit testing in an F3 car by any team or driver intending to compete in next year’s Series during the period from January 1 to February 14 inclusive. This ban is not limited simply to the UK and Europe; it is world-wide. So Macanese motorsport ambassador had to reject some seducing offers to test and race in that period.

In the home of Welsh Motorsport Rodolfo Avila wants to “get back to work. This is a very important test for me as it is the first after a long break. The team is the same of the last year for me but it has been deeply restructured after the end of 2006. These three days will help me to evaluate the competitiveness of the championship and who are going to be my opponents if I join to the series this year.”

Because of this testing session Rodolfo Avila will celebrate the Chinese New Year and his Birthday (on the 19th) far away from his hometown and his family and friends. “This is part of the job…”, says the young Macanese who knows how important is to represent Macau SAR in the world of Motor Racing.

If Rodolfo Avila can get into British F3 Championship Class he will be the first Macanese driver to race in the top-class of the most prestigious single-seater competition for rising racing stars. Around the world, no other race series has produced as many Grand Prix winners and World Champions as British Formula 3.
