Upcoming Thai racing driver Sandy Kraokaew Stuvik is preparing for his first GP3 Series race on the 13-15th May at Barcelona in support of the Formula 1 World Championship.

Last year Sandy competed in the GP3 Series with Status Grand Prix, and has changed teams to the successful Trident Motorsport for his assault at this year's GP3 Championship. Trident Motorsport is based just outside Milan, and as Sandy is already based in Italy it makes his pre-season preparations with the team much more convenient. Trident, who last year narrowly missed out on the GP3 Driver's Championship last season is shaping up to be a front-running contender for this year's Team and Driver's Champion crown in the GP3 Series. “I feel very confident with Trident Motorsport, and it's clear they are doing everything they can to make sure that their cars will be amongst the best on track. I have been working hard throughout the winter to make sure that I am as fit as I can be, having lost 8 kilos since last season.”

Sandy has continued his partnership with Shape Driver fitness centre in Tuscany for his preparations this year. “I'm glad to be with Shape Driver again this year and we've really been focusing on endurance and cardio training. This season I will also be accompanied by my physical trainer Riccardo Salvini at all the races, and I believe this was one of the keys to my success in 2014.”

The 2015 season was a difficult one for Sandy, with a lot to learn about the car and especially the tires. The 2016 GP3 season is shaping up to be the most competitive category below Formula 1, and without doubt the best place to be for an up and coming racing driver with aspirations of competing on the Formula 1 grid. “It'll be a very competitive year with many talented drivers but I'm sure that if we continue to work hard as a team at Trident Motorsport we have the chance to stay in the top 10, and hopefully score some podiums throughout the season.”

Sandy Kraokaew Stuvik is grateful to receive the continued support of Singha Corporation, The Pizza Company, Dacon Inspection Services, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the Royal Automobile Association of Thailand, and the Sports Authority of Thailand as an official Thai athlete. “Once again I am truly thankful that I have been given another opportunity to compete in this category, and I will do everything I can to make sure that we see the Thai flag and the Thai National Anthem on the Formula 1 podium.”
