As every year, both races at Norisring demonstrated to the abundant crowd a great show rich of emotions and unexpected results. In this occasion Prema obtained its first seasonal point with Joao Urbano, who also saw vanish the chances of a certain podium finish in the late stages of Race 2. The weekend had started with free practice session where our drivers, Spanish Alejandro Nunez, Irish Ronayne O’Mahony and Portuguese Joao Urbano finished respectively thirteenth, twenty-first and twelfth.

Unlucky was the qualifying session, where in the last minutes our drivers couldn’t find traffic free laps. Our best performer was Urbano who obtained the fourteenth position immediately followed by Alejandro Nunez and O’Mahony in nineteenth position. In race 1 Joao managed to obtain the first seasonal point. Author of a careful and aggressive race he finished in eighth position, which awarded him with the pole position for the second race. Satisfying eleventh place for Ronayne O’Mahony, who continues improving in this difficult championship.

Unlucky was on the other hand Alejandro Nunez, who was forced to retire at mid race due to a contact with an opponent, which made him lose the opportunity of starting the second race from a better position. In race 2 Joao was a protagonist until a few laps from the end when he braked too late at the first curve and had to say goodbye to a possible and deserved podium finish.

Seventh position for Alejandro Nunez who started the race from the twenty-first position and arrived almost in the points zone. Twelfth position finally for the Irish Ronayne O’Mahony.

Angelo ROSIN, Team Principal of the Vicenza-based Team: “I am very displeased for the absence of results. All the team had done a very good weekend. Joao was unlucky he couldn’t obtain a deserved result. Nevertheless we still have to stay concentrated and continue the hard work.”
