Prema Powerteam is proud to announce Bruno Bonifacio, Luca Ghiotto and Giorgio Roda as part of the team's three-driver line-up for the 2012 Italian F.Aci-Csai Abarth Championship and European F.Abarth. All the three, 17-year-old youngsters already entered the 2011 season. Brazilian Bonifacio has been one of the best prospects last year running for Prema, and the same goes for Ghiotto, who showed an outstanding potential in terms of battling at the top of the pack. Roda will be the new guy with Angelo Rosin and his squad, but in the first few weeks he proved to be fully in-touch with the Prema way of doing things in motorsports.
Angelo ROSIN – Team PRINCIPAL “This season we will rely on drivers who are now experienced with the series and we'll start the year with much more momentum than in 2011. Bonifacio and Ghiotto grew up with us and they are now ready to get some well-deserved results they worked for last year. Roda is lining-up with us for the first time but he already knows the championship, the cars and the track so he'll be starting on the same level of his team-mates. I think we'll have a lot of fun together!".
Bruno Bonifacio "I am very happy to continue the work that we started last year with Prema Powerteam. We had some good races and we've been working a lot to prepare ourselves for this season. I am looking forward to it!" Luca Ghiotto "This will be my second season in F.Abart and I need to take advantage from everything I learned last year. The experience of Prema Powerteam taught me a lot and being back with this team is definitely the best choice for me. I will be no longer a rookie in 2012 so I need to be competitive right from the start and finalize the job done in 2011. I want to kick-off with a positive performance in testing and line-up fully-prepared at Valencia."
Giorgio Roda “I'm really happy and proud to be racing with Prema for my second year in Formula Abarth. After spending the winter testing with the Formula 3 car, me, my father and my trainer decided to follow Angelo Rosin's advice and do another year in F.Abarth. I'm sure that Prema will enable me to grow a lot and even fight for some positive results…"
