Last weekend on the circuit of Nurburgring was held the sixth meeting of the Formula 3 Euro Series. During this event all the Team wanted to acknowledge the progress done in this period.

Unfortunately two contacts in the first stage of Race 1 excluded two of our drivers, Spaniard Alejandro Nunez and Italian Paolo Nocera, compromising a good starting position in Sunday’s race.

Our other driver Irish Ronayne O’Mahony is in continuous progress and race after race continues to perfection his chronometric results.

The weekend started on Thursday with two free practice sessions called “Pre-Event Test” where teams and drivers had the occasion to optimize the set up for the difficult circuit of Nurburgring. The balance was positive considering the amount of tests performed by our drivers. Our best driver was Alejandro Nunez who positioned in 14th place followed in 15th by Paolo Nocera and in 20th by Ronayne O’Mahony.

The following day was held a one hour free practice session followed by the qualifying session in late afternoon which determined the starting order of race 1. Our best driver was Alejandro Nunez who obtained the twelfth time followed by rookie Paolo Nocera who was classified in fourteenth position. Eighteenth time for Ronayne O’Mahony.

Race 1 finished early for two of our drivers who after a good start were almost in the Top 10 positions due to a contact with opponents in the early stages of the race. Alejandro, after a front nose change re-entered in the race nevertheless distanced from the group while Nocera was forced to retire with the front suspension damaged. Fourteenth position for Ronayne O’Mahony who certainly did a good race.

On Sunday was held the second race which was certainly very interesting for the crowd present in the grand stands. All three drivers gained important positions after starting with dry conditions and a vigilant first part of the race. O’Mahony was ninth, Nunez was twelfth and Nocera was fifteenth. An unexpected rain was the main key of the race. The asphalt was slippery and didn’t forgive the errors of many drivers and the presence of the safety car permitted Nocera to re-enter in the box in order to substitute the tyres as two other opponents did. Nunez and O’Mahony remained on track with the slick tyres but the conditions were really difficult. For Nunez a contact with an other driver and for O’Mahony a spin were the motives of an early race finish. On the other hand Nocera finished in twelfth position, not using at maximum, due to inexperience, the most favourable conditions.

Angelo Rosin, Team Principal of the team: “The debut of Paolo Nocera in this difficult category was very positive. The young Italian committed a few errors due to his inexperience and didn’t manage to obtain what he has the potential for. Unfortunate was Alejandro Nunez who compromised a result in race 1. Finally Ronayne O’Mahony’s performance was positive and race after race he continues to improve. Now we have to prepare at best for the next meeting scheduled for the first weekend of September on the Dutch circuit of Zandvoort.
