FAST FAIRUZ OUT TO CONQUER SPAIN!

MOFAZ_08MOFAZ Racing (formerly known as MOFAZFortec Motorsport) embarks on a new circuit this weekend, the Motorland Aragon in Alcaniz, Spain, at the final race meeting for the World Series by Renault 2009 Championship. It will be the first time out on the brand new track for all the drivers competing in the championship, but the fact does not perturb the dynamic duo of Fairuz Fauzy and Sten Pentus, who have just completed the collective tests for the race weekend as this release goes out to the presses. MOFAZ Racing is currently 5th in the running for the Team Title Championship, while Fairuz Fauzy looks set to give his compatriots a tough battle out on the tracks as he looks ahead at the top 3 positions in the Drivers Championship.

This weekend also marks the international inauguration of the Motorland Aragon Circuit, and the Circuit’s management has promised a fun-filled weekend, and indeed a special surprise at the final dinner (a world –renowned Spanish singer!). Designed by F1 driver Pedro de la Rosa and famous German designer Hermann Tilke, the circuit poses the biggest and most technical challenge for all the drivers out on the Formula 3.5 grid this weekend. 7.6 gruelling kilometres per lap, 18 intriguing corners with one posing a 180˚ angle turn, this high speed circuit also boasts a height difference of 50 metres between its highest and lowest points.

MOFAZ_05The Final Round of the World Series by Renault 2009 will see a clash of the titans, as the honorary title of runner-up is equally hotly contested. With mere points separating the top 5 drivers, Fairuz Fauzy, Charles Pic, Brendon Hartley, James Walker, Jaime Alguersuari, Oliver Turvey and Marcos Martinez seems ideally placed to claim second-place.

The last two races of the season will see all the drivers battling it out, followed by the official World Series by Renault prize-giving ceremony. The teams however will remain at the circuit for three days of collective testing from October 27-29, 2009. In addition to the stars of the various Formula Renault 2.0 championships invited by Renault Sport Technologies to discover Formula Renault 3.5, the teams will be able to test their new drivers for the 2010 season, and MOFAZ Racing looks set to shine further next year in 2010 with some exciting development underway that will be announced in due time. Stay tuned!
