“My hopes and aims are to mature and develop more as a driver due to the intense and difficult tracks that I will face in England. Of course I also want to be a strong candidate, fighting for the championship. Elite is an experienced and hard-working team that I believe can give me everything for me to put in good performances. I’m very grateful to Picho [Diaz-Toledano] at Seven GP for bringing this new and exciting association together.”


Eddie Ives, Elite Motorsport Team Owner & Manager:

“I'm over the moon to have secured Javier in one of our BF3 cars. We had a very promising three-day test with Javier at Valencia in December. He impressed the whole team with his attitude and pace. It’s a big challenge for him coming over to the UK but I'm confident we will surprise a few people.”
