Friday, May 28th~ Sunday,May 30th, Le Castellet, France. The fourth appointment of the Regional European championship by Alpine takes place in Paul Ricard’s circuit, famous for having hosted seventeen editions of Formula 1. Francia does not smile at our Francesco who goes out of a hard weekend, full of difficulties, but he is certainly stronger and more mature because basically it is in difficulties that one improves. From free tests to the qualifications useful for the races, Francesco understands that his days will not be easy at all. Nevertheless in the first session of free tests he records his best personal time: 1’59”943; instead in qualification 1 he cannot get to grips with the car and he arrives 27th, in qualification 2 he gets the 21st position making a mistake in the third sector. Everything is ready for Race 1 . The sun shines on this French Saturday where the temperature is mild and the beginning is seasoned with a right dose of adrenaline : the Swiss pilot Gregoire Saucy is disqualified for technical irregularities of his car. It is a sparkling Race, to say the least, rich in hard contacts which bring some pilots back into the pits: Lorenzo Fluxa and Mari Boya from the team Van Amerafoort. Francesco struggles and improves lap after lap, he works hard to make everything go right and finishes the race in 21st place. Hadrien David wins the race , Mikhael Belov is second and Gabriel Mini’ is third. At the end of the first competition the boy from Frascati meet the engineers of his team in order to make a deep analysis of the situation, confirming his maturity and his passion for this sport. (it is not for everyone)! Now it is Sunday so it is time for Race 2 . It’s time to start at nine o’ clock and the engines roar in Paul Ricard’s circuit. The race is characterized by the victory of Gregoire Saucy, before Mikhael Belov who arrives second, and William Alatolo, who arrives third. He is protagonist of a fantastic duel with Isack Hadjar who positions in fourth place. This Sunday is not so favorable for Francesco who struggles and tries to get back on top after a not very good qualification. And on the last lap , after the safety car enters the track to group the pilots, he is hit by his teammate. We let you imagine the rest. A bitter end which concludes an experience in France to forget as soon as possible! But in these cases , it is important to learn for the future, as it is in the critical situations that the foundations for future growth are laid. The meeting with the team technicians will bring good results, that is for sure! Now we have to wait for the next stage of the championship in Zandvoort in Holland on 20th of June , exactly at home Van Anersfoort. Everything points to a turning point for our boy.

See you soon!!!!!!
