The Formula Regional European Championship will be back to Italy this weekend. After mathematically clinching the team title in the previous round at Barcelona, PREMA Powerteam will line-up at Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola to make further steps towards the driver title by providing the maximum support to its drivers.

Heading into the penultimate round of the championship, Brazilian Gianluca Petecof is currently being trailed by team-mates Arthur Leclerc and Oliver Rasmussen: the Brazilian, who turned 18 last week, has a four-point advantage on the 20-year-old Monegasque. The Ferrari Driver Academy pairing will continue their closed-quarters battle at the difficult Emilia Romagna Grand Prix venue but will have once again to watch out from the contenders,  especially the closest one, team-mate Rasmussen. 

The Dane (20) has been the team's best scorer in the two previous outings, with three wins in the last five races. He is wishing to carry and increase his momentum, which has been growing since his win in the opening race of the year at Monza. Lining-up on another unknown track for her, female racer Jamie Chadwick is looking forward to making an additional step, gaining mileage and experience on a challenging and technical circuit to score a positive result. 


"Even if we already secured the team title, the driver championship is still up for grabs and we are not the only contender, so we will need to stay focused at Imola. This season has been unpredictable and we already saw that, with the right conditions, even large gaps can be closed. Having three drivers at the top of the championship is for sure exciting considering that delivering the best possible cars to our drivers is our prerogative."
