Matt Parry sticks with Koiranen for 2016 GP3 assault

The 2013 McLaren Autosport BRDC Award winner, Matt Parry will stay with Koiranen GP for a second season of GP3

Parry stepped into the series this year from Formula Renault 2.0 Euro and ALPS and finished eighth in the standings, having taken three podium finishes.

He sampled Trident machinery on the opening day of Abu Dhabi's post-season test earlier this month, before returning to Koiranen for the second and third days.

The 21-year-old has now completed his deal to stay in the series with the squad in 2016.

"Having completed the 2015 season, I am now familiar with all the circuits we race on, so that will also give me a head-start on what I hope will be a tilt at the championship title," he said.

"We don't know who else is returning from the 2015 season, but I can't worry about that.

"I know what I am capable of with the Koiranen team, and we both look forward to turning that into race wins and a lot of points second time around.

"The championship title can be my only goal for 2016 and I am already looking forward to getting my head down and working towards that.

"Getting this deal sewn up so early means that we are already ahead of the field and I intend for it to stay that way."
