Brand-new DR Formula by RP Motorsport team is set to leave a mark in the single-seater scenario. Two important names partner in a joint venture to face their next commitment in the Formula Regional European Championship – this year at its very first season – as well as in the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth.

On one side an experienced squad like the one of Danilo Rossi, that entered the Italian series since the inaugural edition in 2014 continuing its talent-scouting from kart. On the other the historical Fabio Pampado’s team, making its return to Italy after ten successful years in the continental championships.

DR Formula by RP Motorsport will face a double program, aiming to get involved in other series in the future.

I know Fabio since a long time”, Danilo Rossi commented, “We never worked together before, but I introduced him Toni Vilander [with RP Motorsport, one of the Formula Renault 2.0 front runners early in the 2000s]. We always had a great mutual respect. DR Formula started its effort in F4 with a professional person like Roberto Venieri, who is now involved in other projects and to whom I am very grateful. I am convinced that together the RP Motorsport we can do a great job”.

We are thrilled about the agreement with DR Formula”, Fabio Pampado added, “I know very well Danilo and I am conscious our partnership will lead us to great achievements. After a ten-year absence and six European championships won, RP Motorsport is finally set to return to an Italian series. That is a challenging situation for us”.
