22 Feb 2019

DR Formula by RP Motorsport made its first official appearance. The brand new team led by Danilo Rossi and Fabio Pampado hit the Vallelunga track Wednesday and Thursday this week, completing a two-day intense and fruitful testing.

Driving for the first time the Formula Regional European Championship’s single seater, Mexican Raul Guzman showed a good pace. The 19-year-old racer who has been announced for a 2019 full season commitment, set the sixth time. Guzman, already one of the Italian F4 front-runners in 2016, having finished third in the Drivers’ standings with DR Formula, found a great feeling with the new car as he set 1:29.211 completing a total of 111 laps, 70 of them in the day 2.

Eyes were also on 17-year-old rookie Joseph Turney. The Briton, who made his debut on a Formula 4 car coming from karting, was only a few tenths of seconds slower than the “polesitter”, completing 66 laps with a great pace.
