Brazilian Racing News: Rossoni in Barber Dodge Series

20 March 1998

Nilton Rossoni, the only Brazilian to race in the Barber Dodge Series
starting this weekend in Sebring, will have a tough year in 1998.

The 16 year-old Rossoni, who comes from Curitaba, Brazil, said, "I
decided to race the Barber Dodge Series, the F-Chevrolet in Brazil and
do some testing in Indy Lights."

Some time ago, all Brazilian drivers dreamed of going to F-1 to 
follow Piquet and Senna's steps. Today, our drivers see 2 options: 
heading to CART or to F-1.  The first driver of this new generation was 
André Ribeiro, followed by Tony Kanaan and Hélio Castro Neves.

Rossoni said, "I feel very good living in the US, and I am in a generation 
that has an option other than F-1, so my way is already planned."
