Talks are nearing completion to secure the most competitive drive possible for in-demand racing driver Jack Harvey.
Harvey's sponsors, Racing Steps Foundation, are currently negotiating with a number of teams to try and place Harvey, who is the current British Formula 3 champion, with a new team next year, writes Dave Marshall.
Harvey is expected to move up to GP3 as he continues his rise towards his ultimate goal, to drive in Formula 1.
And his championship-winning success last season has attracted the attention of numerous racing team bosses in GP3.
Racing Steps Foundation co-ordinator Derek Walters said a deal will be struck with Harvey's new team within the week.
"We are looking at a number of options for Jack," said Walters.
"There are quite a few teams who have recognised Jack as a competitive driver and they would obviously like to have him in their team.
"We have to keep those negotiations confidential at the moment out of respect for those teams.
"I will be meeting up with Jack soon for a de-brief following his recent GP3 testing sessions in Jerez and we will be making a decision based on that."
