Antonio SpavoneThe last weekend has been raced the Formula Abarth European and Italian Event in one of the Formula 1 World Championship circuits and in one of the most prestigious World circuits like Spa-Francorchamps.

The Team JD Motorsport, which won last year on this track, this time had a particular unlucky Qualifying Session with both its Drivers out of the “top 8”: Riccardo Agostini spun damaging his tyres before he could get the best grip while he was trying to improve his lap time so that he finished with the 10th lap time, and Antonio Spavone complained about brake problems finishing with the 16th place on the starting grid.

In spite of the difficult positions at the start Riccardo and Antonio had two very good races closing a lot the gap they had and getting important points. In Race 1 Agostini overtook some cars having the possibility for fighting for the Podium, too, than he was 5th under the chequered flag; at the same time Spavone closed the gap from the 16th place until the 12th.

In Race 2 JD Drivers had been very strong getting the 7th place with Agostini and a good 10th with Spavone which looked for and defended it until the last corner.

The next Formula Abarth Event for Team JD and its Drivers (26th-27th-28th August) will be in Austria at the Red Bull Ring, until few time ago Formula 1 circuit, too, and it will be valid only for the European Series.
