Briscoe to race in Melbourne!
TOYOTA sources in Germany are whispering that the Toyota Motorsport test driver Ryan Briscoe will be racing at Melbourne this year - in one of the supporting races for the Australian Grand Prix. This is logical thing to do as Briscoe is an Australian and the crowds will be keen to see the country's newest rising star. However it is worth noting that knowledge of the Melbourne track will also be useful for the youngster if he happened to find himself in a Formula 1 car in 2003.
It is believed that Briscoe will be seen in a locally-prepared Ferrari sportscar in an event called The Nations Cup.
Briscoe is expected to be a frontrunner in Formula 3000 this year with the Nordic Racing team.
