Signature and Ultimate unite for WSR

Signature have announced that the new alliance have secured the thirteenth and final place on the entry list for the 2008 WSbR championship.

The French team competed in the series' predecessor Eurocup Formula Renault V6, winning the 2003 teams' title, and have raced in F3 for the past 15 seasons.

Ultimate were founded at the start of 2007 and have introduced the Mygale chassis to the British F3 field.

"This is a great opportunity for us to be part of the ultra-competitive World Series by Renault, which has been a breeding ground for F1 stars such as Robert Kubica and Sebastian Vettel in the recent past," said Signature boss Philippe Sinault.

"The move represents the next logical step forwards for us, after 15 successful years in Formula Three. We're very much looking forward to our new collaboration with Ultimate, which holds so much potential."

Ultimate founder Barry Walsh added: "In a short space of time we have come a very long way, and our season in British Formula 3 has taught us a lot. Now, thanks to the renowned expertise of Signature, we are able to take the next step up in an exciting joint venture.

"We will be driven by passion, as well as the pursuit of sporting excellence."
