RP Motorsport, Campos Racing and Emilio de Villota Motorsport were testing on Thursday and Friday at Circuito de Jerez

Despite the 2012 season was over just a few weeks ago, some teams taking part in the European F3 Open have already begun their pre-season tests for 2013. RP Motorsport, who took the title this year, Campos Racing and Emilio de Villota Motorsport have been testing this week at Circuito de Jerez.

Niccolò Schirò – the most recent champion in the series- was testing with RP Motorsport, the Fabio Pampado´s team also having some new names such as Mans Grenhagen, Alexandre Cougnaud – a sensational driver this year in the Copa with Top F3-, Samin Gómez and Alex Toril. Schirò, Grenhagen, Cougnaud and Gómez were at the wheel of F312 cars, meanwhile Toril drove a F308.

At Campos Racing there were also novelties, after its great end of season. Moisés Soriano, a very young promising star in the Spanish motorsport, and Valeria Carballo, after an improving season race by race, drove both Adrián Campos´ cars.

Finally, Emilio de Villota Motorsport lined-up three new drivers: one from Spain and two other from Russia and Italy. So far, Madrid-based team preferred to keep their names in secret.
