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.
