Lichfield driver prepares for reunion with CRS Racing team

Lichfield driver will get back behind the wheel of a CRS Racing car once again for the penultimate round of the International GT Open at Monza.

Christodoulou worked with the team previously during his successful spell in Formula  Renault.

He will drive the Ferrari 430 alongside Tim Mullen in place of regular driver Chris Niarchos.

And the Lichfield racer admits he had no hesitation in filling in. He explained:

“When Andrew (Kirkaldy) called me I said yes straight away,” said Adam. “The Ferrari 430 is an amazing car and now, after seeing them at the CRS Technical Centre so many times, I finally get to have a go.

“I’m looking forward to racing in Europe again. I haven’t raced at Monza before so I will have the challenge of learning the track and the car at the same time but that’s okay as I have been doing that all year.”

After winning the Formula Renault UK Championship in 2008, Christodoulou headed to the United States where he excelled in the 2009 Star Mazda Series, winning the first race. He followed this up with two further wins, nine out of 13 podiums and ultimately the Championship title.

CRS Racing team boss Andrew Kirkaldy believes that his US experience made him an ideal choice for the race.

He said:

“It makes perfect sense for us to run Adam at Monza. We ran him for two years in Formula Renault so we know exactly how good he is.  He has done a great job in America and it will be interesting for us to see how he performs in one of our Ferraris.  I have no doubt he will do a great job for us.”
