German GP2 team Hilmer Motorport will replace Russian Time for this years GP3 season.
The Hilmer squad performed well in it’s first season of GP2 competition last year winning three races, and team boss Franz Hilmer is delighted to expand the team further.
“We are very happy to announce the expansion of our motorsport programme. Since the establishment of Hilmer Motorsport in 2013 we wanted to build up and field a GP3 team.
“The creation of a GP3 team is the logical step in the development of young talents. With the partnership of our GP2 team with Sahara Force India they come closer to become test driver of a Formula 1 team.”
The Russian Time entry had lay vacant after the death of team principal Igor Mazepa last year, which left the squad in Chaos before the 2013 season. iSport came in to run the GP2 entry – winning the championship at the first attempt – but did not want to take on the GP3 team as well, leaving the slot unfilled.
