GP2 championship leading team Russian Time will enter the GP3 Series in 2014 and 2015.

Russian Time has bought Bamboo Engineering's entry and will make their first appearance at the post-season test in Abu Dhabi.

"We’re pleased to welcome Russian Time to GP3 Series for the next two seasons," said series CEO Bruno Michel.

"Their rookie year in GP2 Series in 2013 has been extremely strong so far with five wins, three podium finishes and three pole positions. They’re currently leading the teams’ standings with only one round left in the season. I am confident they will put together a GP3 team that will be ready and competitive for this new challenge."

"We’re very happy to be joining the GP3 Series next season and I would like to thank the organisers for this great opportunity," said Russian Time team principal Igor Mazepa.

"We’ve had a very successful first season in GP2 Series in 2013 in our first year. Our objective was to be fighting for the Teams’ title and that’s what we will be doing in Abu Dhabi next month. We’re looking forward to that same kind of success in GP3 in 2014 and 2015. We will be working hard towards that starting with the post-season tests at Yas Marina Circuit."
