Share this post

The recovery race starting grid has Blomqvist (Kic Motorsport) and Vesti (Prema Powerteam) in the first row, while Sophia Floersch (Van Amersfoort Racing) is just behind them with Schumacher (US Racing). The young female driver overtakes Vesti and becomes second for a while, then she is overtaken by Caldwell (Prema Powerteam). Fittipaldi (Prema Powerteam) is involved in an accident with Schumacher and has to retire, Sophia Floersch is unfortunately hit by Frederik Vesti and goes off track loosing many positions not for her fault. At the re-start after the safety car intervention Caldwell becomes the race leader after having overtaken Vesti.

Third place for Blomqvist, then Guzman (DR Formula by RP Motorsport), Fraga (DR Formula by RP Motorsport), and Schumacher. Behind Sophia Floersch regains some positions and becomes ninth after some troubles in the back group with Bardinon’s (Van Amersfoort Racing) spin, behind Matteo Nannini (Corbetta Racing Srl). Frederik Vesti obtains the first positions with another great overtake, passing Caldwell internally on Rivazza corner. Guzman’s car spins, falls down to tenth position and finally he has to retire after a while for damage to his car.

Vesti is penalized again, this time with 10 seconds, for attempting an overtake under safety car regime. The Danish is the first at the finish line, with such a higher pace that he manages to have an advantage over 10 seconds on P2 and wins.

The next appointment with Formula Regional European Championship certified by FIA will be in Barcelona, from September 20th to September 22nd.
