Team Novadriver joins FIA GT Series with Audi


By Tarek Ramchani

Team Novadriver from Portugal unveiled their 2013 program  yesterday. They will again be racing with Audi and the R8 LMS ultra after a storming 2012 season in Portugal and Spain.

Racing for their fourth straight year with Audi, the Portuguese customer team will enter the brand new FIA GT Series. A new series that come after the collapse of the FIA GT1 World Championship. The paddock and atmosphere won't be new for the team team. Novadriver also raced in the defunct FIA GT3 European Championship last year. Both series in 2012 had almost the same set of rules and even shared many races in the second half of the year. For the FIA GT Series effort the team's regular driver César Campaniço will be joined by Carlos Vieira.

In addition to their FIA GT Series effort, Novadriver will race in the new Supercars International Series as well. A series that will have the 6 Hours of Rome as the finale, which will be the stellar event on the calendar.
