THE PACIFIC Grand Prix team, who will operate from a base near Thetford, Norfolk, have signed up the the little- known German driver, Michael Bartels, to compete in this year's Formula One world championship. Bartels, 24, drove in the International Formula 3000 series last year and finished fourth overall. His only previous Formula One experience was with Lotus in 1991 when he entered four grands prix but on each occasion failed to qualify for the race.
