Formula Renault 2.0 Alps 2013. Round 13,14 Imola, Italy.

11.11.2013 Articles

The undisputed ruler of the last Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS weekend of the season at Imola was the young Prema Powerteam driver Luca Ghiotto, who scored a double win and secured second overall in the Championship. Two second places confìrmed Antonio Fuoco as the new champion, but he had to watch his back because of tenacious newcomer Matt Parry.

The Welshman made a brilliant ALPS debut and managed to take second in Race 2 before being penalised 25 seconds because of contact with Bruno Bonifacio. The Brazilian also contributed to Prema’s cheer – the team seized ali 14 race wins from the 2013 season, with ali three drivers mounting the top step of the podium. Well worth pointing out is third overall in Race 2 for Russian Egor Orudzhev, driving for Tech 1 Racing.

Antonio Fuoco is the 2013 Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS Champion. After only celebrating his 17th birthday in May, the Prema Junior Team’s Italian driver seized the Championship in Race 1 of the last round, capping his debut season of single-seater racing. The Ferrari Driver Academy protege outscored Prema team-mate Luca Ghiotto, who took second in the points.

Always among the fastest, in any conditions, Fuoco took six wins this year (Vallelunga, Imola, Monza and Mugello) , took three second places and one third to claim a total of 10 podiums. Only on two occasions out of 14 did he not score points. A great season for the young Italian, who is aiming high in his career.

Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS continues to throw open its doors to young talents. Apart from Antonio Fuoco, the Ferrari Driver Academy’s big talent, and Nyck de Vries (McLaren Young Driver Programme), at Imola Britain’s Matt Parry also blossomed. At 19 years old, he is part of the Caterham Racing Academy and debuted with Koiranen GP.

There are new youngsters every weekend in the Fast Lane Promotion Series, and Imola witnessed two more debuts: Ukrainian Danyil Pronenko (GSK Grand Prix) and Thailand’s Tanart Sathienthirakul (Arta Engineering). It has been a highly international field in 2013, with overall 48 drivers coming from 24 different countries and racing for 16 teams. Ali attentions now switch to the upcoming season, which will be fought out on leading circuits that will soon be announced.
