Posted on February 22, 2016

 

In recognition of a fantastic year of podium finishes, Australian Jake Parsons earned himself a GP2 test drive with his Meritus.GP team at Sepang F1 circuit in Malaysia,

Said Jake of his prize: “It was an honour to get to test in Luca Filippi’s race-winning GP2 Asia car. I did several sessions throughout the day and although it was my first time driving a GP2 car, the driving technique is the same as for other formulae,”

Meritus.GP was the exclusive race engineering services supplier to AsiaCup over the last 3 years and will continue to provide exclusive services to the new FIA Formula 4 South East Asia championship.

Meritus GP2 competed in the GP2 Asia Championship for 3 seasons: 2008, 2009 and 2010 and were vice-champions in 2010 with Luca Filippi and Alexander Rossi. Luca Filippi went on to test for the Honda F1 and Pirelli F1 test teams while Rossi competed in F1 with the Manor F1 team.
