The last weekend of September and the first of the coming autumn saw the boys of the Formula Regional European by Alpine run on Spanish soil, in Valencia, for the recovery of the cancelled race of Nurburgring, in August. Intense, long and tiring days in Spain. The boy from Frascati distinguishes himself in the qualifying, closing the first session 13th, 5th among the rookies, and setting a time of 1:29.282. In the second session Francesco finishes 12th, still 5th among rookies, and improves his performance with a time of 1:29.754. Putting qualifying aside, the hot hours of Race 1 begin. A strange race, inevitably marked by the penalty of 10 seconds imposed to Francesco, Rosso and Goethe for exceeding the “track limits”. Inevitable repercussions on the race for the Italian driver, who will end the first competition in 18th place. The Argentinean Colapinto wins, taking a little revenge with respect to the Austrian race and the relative penalties. He is followed by Vidales in 2nd place and Boya in 3rd, who has a delay of 3.6 seconds with respect to those ahead of him. But one of the best drivers is undoubtedly Zane Maloney who recovers four positions on a track where overtaking is not routine. Sunday 26th, we get ready for Race2. Belov starts in pole position and wins and convinces. The race is tough, with accidents that cause the entry of the safety car, technical problems such as those that forced Dino Beganovic to retire. The podium sees the following classification: 1° Belov, 2° Colapinto, 3° Saucy. Francesco arrives 16th. It should be noted that the leader of the championship, Gregoire Saucy, by placing third in Race 2 increased his advantage in the overall standings. He now has 239 points, exactly 78 points ahead of his direct opponent, Hadrien David, in 2nd place. The emotions are not over yet because October is an all-Italian month! It will be raced at Mugello, first, and then at Monza.
Ready for the final rush Made in Italy?!
