JAPANESE GRAND PRIX
Suzuka International Racing Course. 24 September 2019

One of the many newcomers to Formula Challenge this season, Arrow International Racing, finally unveiled their driver lineup for the 2015 season.

On the day before the Formula Challenge season gets underway in Jerez, Arrow officially announced what was one of the worst kept secrets in the off-season. Team Manager Sam Jones is to race in only his 2nd full season in open-wheel cars alongside fellow Englishman Mike Bell.

Sam looked pleased to be finally announcing details of Arrow's inaugural campaign in Sim Racing, "It's with great pleasure that today I can officially launch the team. When the teams were unveiled on GPVWC Day the driver lineup was confirmed almost immediately. Admittedly myself and Mike were to race for Aurora but after they dropped out for 2015 we decided to move over to my team. Many people knew of this but we left it until now to let everyone know."

Talking about his own goals for the year Sam went on to say, "2014 was the first time I have done a full season in an open wheel formula. After spending years in touring and GT cars before taking a few years off and returning to compete in stock cars I felt it was time to finally have a real go at a formula car. 2014 was difficult, mainly in qualifying but it has made me want to return to a more active role in simracing. I aim to score more points this year and in a consistent fashion."

Mike displayed his excitement and had much to say regarding the announcement, "I am looking forward to driving with Arrow in 2015."

Arrow will be taking part in the Jerez test with rumours that the team may run an interim livery in a familiar colour used often in Sam's previous racing ventures. An official unveiling of the teams 2015 livery is expected within the coming fortnight.
