Antonio Felix da Costa has signed with Motopark Academy to compete in the 2010 Formula 3 Euro Series.  It was announced earlier this week that the other two seats at Motopark Academy would be filled by Adrian Quaife-Hobbs and Matias Laine.

Da Costa was very impressive this season in Formula Renault 2.0 competition.  The 18-year-old Portugese driver dominated the Formula Renault NEC (Northern European Cup), compiling 9 wins, 11 podiums, and 3 pole positions.  Those numbers have him on the podium in 78.6% of his race starts.  He also ran 14-races in the 2009 Formula Renault Eurocup, where he finished 3rd in the overall championship.  In Eurocup competition, he claimed 4 wins, 10 podiums, and 3 pole positions.  He should do very well next season in the F3 Euro Series.
