After a promising 2011 season, Silver Jeans Co. sponsored driver, David Richert, has been invited by an Italian race team to test their Formula 3 car at the world famous Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola, Italy.
Formula 3 is one of the final stages in a driver’s development before the pinnacle levels of motorsport such as Formula 1 and Indy Car. In fact, the winner of the Italian Formula 3 Championship is given a test with the Ferrari F1 team, one of the world’s most renowned sporting franchises. Legendary drivers such as Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher and Mika Hakkinen have all made a name for themselves in Formula 3.
Richert’s test is scheduled for mid-November with Team Ghinzani, a team started by ex-Formula 1 Italian race car driver Piercarlo Ghinzani. “We are very happy to have a young talented Canadian driver test our Formula 3 race car and I’m excited to see how David will do at Imola” -Piercarlo Ghinzani
“Eight years ago I was racing go-karts in Gimli, Manitoba, and it was only in my wildest dreams that I would find myself driving a Formula 3 car in Italy. I need to give a huge thanks to Team Ghinzani and Silver Jeans Co. for this amazing opportunity to advance my career.” – David Richert
