19 Jun 2020

Team DR Formula rules in Formula Regional European. The team led by Danilo Rossi topped the chart at the end of the two test days, yesterday and Wednesday, at the Misano circuit.

Matteo Nannini – who is set to make his FIA Formula 3 Championship debut – was simply perfect. After his maiden appearance last week at Mugello, the Forlì-based racer improved constantly. Although he drove only Thursday, the 16-year-old completed 95 laps in the morning and afternoon sessions to set with fresh tyres the quickest time in 1:26.640 that remained unbeaten.

Driving for the fourth time the DR Formula’s Tatuus, Pesce impressed by improving constantly, setting on day-2 his best time in 1:30.431 and entering the top of the field. That was a very promising result looking forward his next challenge for the Rookie standings this year.

These two test days were very important because they have been hosted on the same track that will kick off the 2020 season. Moreover I could compare my performance with many other drivers”, Emidio Pesce said. “I already raced at Misano last year in Formula 4, but it was a very rainy weekend”.

We hit the track on Thursday, testing different setup solutions Matteo Nannini commented – Yesterday it was very hot, but everything went fine and I could set the best time with fresh tyres”.

The next commitment for DR Formula is scheduled for the next week, 25/26 June, at Imola. Pesce will complete two more test days at Misano.
