Bruno BonifacioThe F.Renault 2.0 ALPS Championship will be back underway this weekend at Vallelunga, and Prema Powerteam is aiming high at the Rome-bound racetrack by fielding three cars for Bruno Bonifacio, Antonio Fuoco and Luca Ghiotto. Both Bonifacio and Ghiotto will rely on a good amount of experience as they lined-up with Prema in last season’s F.Abarth series, while Fuoco, coming from the Ferrari Driver Academy, will be at his open-wheel debut. After having sampled the F.Renault environment last season, the Prema stable make their full-time return in a series that brought them sensational results between 2000 and 2008.

Good vibes have come throughout winter testing as the Prema drivers worked hard in the development of their new racecars. The Vallelunga weekend will take-off with the running of three, hour-long practice sessions on Friday, April the 6th at 9.30, 12.15 and 17.05. Qualifying will be held on Saturday at 10.15, followed by Race 1 at 17.00. Race 2 is scheduled for Sunday at 15:00.

Angelo Rosin – Team Principal
“We’re heading towards Vallelunga and we’re happy to be back in the Renault camp and on a roster featuring almost 40 cars. We are always eager to find new challenges and this is clearly one of them. We will line-up against some great teams and their talented drivers, young men who will surely become very successful in motor racing in the future. We will line-up with Bonifacio and Ghiotto, and they both had the chance to try this championship in the latest stages of last season. They are top racers and they have all what it takes to deliver good results. The same goes for Fuoco. Despite the fact that he’ll be making his open-wheel debut, he already showed excellent skills in testing”.
