Sato heads Macau Grand Prix entry

Jordan-bound British Formula 3 champion Takuma Sato heads the entry list for the prestigious Macau Grand Prix, held in the former Portuguese enclave on November 18.

This year's four major F3 champions - from the British, German, French and Japanese series - feature on the entry list for the blue riband street race, which was unveiled today (Tuesday).

Sato, who will race alongside Giancarlo Fisichella in Jordan's F1 line-up next year, heads Carlin Motorsport's three-car entry, along with British series runner-up Anthony Davidson and Australian F3 champion Peter Hackett.

Of the other British teams, Fortec Motorsport will run Italian Gianmaria Bruni and local event regular Lei Kit Meng, Manor Motorsport will field cars for Mark Taylor and Derek Hayes, and double race winner Andy Priaulx and Bruce Jouanny will drive for Promatecme.

Recently confirmed German F3 champion Toshihiro Kaneishi heads Bertram Schafer Racing's two-car entry. The Japanese, who secured his title in the appeal court last week, will be partnered by Italian Enrico Toccacelo in the Opel-powered team.

The French series assault is led by champion Ryo Fukuda, who is partnered by China's Marchy Lee at Saulnier Racing. ASM will run Tristan Gommendy and Portuguese ace Tiago Monteiro, but a surprise entry is former French champion Jonathan Cochet.

Cochet will lead Signature Competition's two-car entry alongside Japanese frontrunner Yuji Ide. The Prost F1 test driver is keen to try and raise his profile after a disjointed season in Formula Nissan and Formula 3000.

Frenchman Benoit Treluyer, who ironically beat the locals to the All-Japan F3 title, leads the interest from the Far East in his Dome-run entry. TOM'S Toyota will enter two cars for Sakon Yamamoto and Italian Paulo Montin.
