Adam Carroll at DPR? Why not!

Italiaracing reports today that Autosprint magazine places Adam Carroll at DPR for the Istambul race.
I have written about this talented Irish driver in another post, and it would be a great move by André Herck to place Adam in his second race car. Given that Giacomo Ricci, apart from bringing in no money, has produced zero results for the team, bringing in an experienced GP2 race-winner like Carroll is a great bet. If you’re going to incur a loss, might as well do it with drivers that can put your car in the top 10.
If Herck’s gamble pays off well, it could convince drivers such as James Jakes that the team is competent and that in the hands of a strong driver can be competitive. If it doesn’t, they’re just back where they started. Good move from Herck, since it’s not easy to find drivers of this caliber available and willing to go on a race-by-race deal.
