The 2012 season is down to the last three races. The Monza racetrack will be hosting the final round of the Formula Abarth Series, valid for the European Series and the Italian Championship, and Prema Powerteam is aiming at both titles with its regular drivers Bruno Bonifacio and Luca Ghiotto. The young Italian racer is holding second place in both series, followed by his Brazilian team-mate.

"We'll have to attack since qualifying - explained Team Owner Angelo Rosin - and return to the performance levels we showed in the first part of the season. We have the qualities needed to succeed and I'm looking forward to it, but our rivals are really competitive and they're definitely going to challenge us". Giorgio Roda will also try to get into the leading pack and confirm the progress showed so far.

The practice session for the round at Monza will be held at 13:05 on Friday, followed by qualifying at 18:20. Race 1 will be starting on Saturday at 11:30 AM while the second, 15-minute one will be taking-off at 18:15 PM. The closing race of the season will start at 11:45, on a 30-minute distance + 1 lap. All the weekend's races will be televised live on TV network Rai Sport 2 and on www.acisportitalia.it/ABARTH .
