Once more, here at Brands Hatch the results of the Team Prema were poorer than expected. A series of unfortunate conditions didn’t allow our drivers, the Spanish Alejandro Nunez, Irish Ronayne O’Mahony and Portuguese Joao Urbano, to concretize the potential at disposal.

During the pre race period all the Team’s technical staff had worked hardly in order to give to the drivers the important improvements for them to gain a few classification positions. During the first free practice session, the performance of Alejandro who finished tenth, very close to the top 5 was very good. Ronayne O’Mahony finished eighteenth, whereas Joao Urbano didn’t exceed the nineteenth position after committing a mistake and damaging the car. The incident occurred in the final stage of the first free practice session and caused his nonparticipation in the second free practice in the afternoon.

In the afternoon the Team’s work continued with Alejandro Nunez obtaining the fourteenth place followed by Ronayne O’Mahony in twenty-first place. On Friday another hour of free practice before the qualifying session which determined the starting order of the race. In this last exercise, traffic and set up problems didn’t allow our drivers to exceed the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-second positions respectively with Ronayne O’Mahony, Alejandro Nunez and Joao Urbano.

Race 1, completed by a distance of 56 laps reminded a parade with no emotions. Not one overtaking was achieved and the arrival classification respected the starting order of the race. Unfortunately, this is due to the circuit’s characteristic that doesn’t possess any real overtaking points. On Sunday however, was held the second race that saw Alejandro, Joao and Roynane respectively finish at fourteenth, fifteenth and twenty-third places.

Angelo Rosin, Team Principal of the Vicenza-based Team: “It has been a really very difficult weekend. I was convinced that here at Brands Hatch it was possible to obtain positive results. Nevertheless, we have to continue our work, confident of returning to the expected positions.”
