Bell aiming for Formula 3000
American racer Townsend Bell is aiming for a top drive in Formula 3000 this year and the word on the street is that he is close to signing a deal with one of the leading British teams. Bell had aspirations of getting into Formula 1 but was unable to raise the money to compete for the available drives and now intends to use Formula 3000 to make an impression on the F1 team bosses. With the Formula 3000 cars becoming increasingly like Formula 1 machinery the relevance of F3000 is increasing, despite competition from the Telefonica World Series.
