Brands Hatch, 6th June 2013: Javi Villa races this weekend at the British track of Brands Hatch, the venue for the third round of the EuroRaceCar series. Last year, at this circuit, Javier scored his first win in the European NASCAR series so the Spaniard returns to the UK very motivated and aiming to repeat last season's success.

To achieve this Javi has already been working from early this week at the headquarters of his French team, Scorpus Racing, with the target of having everything ready and avoid the problems that beset him at the previous round of the series, held last month at Dijon. There, a combination of bad luck and mechanical woes meant that the Spaniard couldn't fight for the wins in the two races despite being as fast as the leaders. This, as well as the great performance of last year in his debut at Brands with NASCAR, allows Villa to be optimistic ahead of this weekend's races at the historic British track.

The activity on the 'Indy' circuit of Brands Hatch, which will again be the one used by the powerful European NASCAR cars, starts on Friday with two practice sessions that should allow Javi and his team to check that all is working well on the car and fine tune the setup ahead of the Saturday morning qualifying. This session is especially important on the narrow and short British track, where overtaking is really difficult so to be on the front rows is crucial to have any chance of a win. Just three hours after qualifying Race 1 takes place, while Race 2 is scheduled for midday on Sunday.

More information about the Brands Hatch event and the EuroRaceCar series can be found at the official website www.euro-racecar.com.
