The debut of Prema Powerteam in the 2012 F.Renault competition continued to provide the Italian squad with sensational results. After having entered the Mugello round of the ALPS series last weekend, Prema entered the final round of the North European Cup at the Belgian Spa-Francorchamps venue, in a challenge that also featured some of the top teams from the Eurocup Series.
Once again, the results were convincing because, despite the powerful 36-car line-up, Bruno Bonifacio scored third place in qualifying, exactly like at Mugello, and ended up in third at the end of Race 1. It was the first podium finish for him. On the other hand, Luca Ghiotto went off early in qualifying and was called to a spectacular recovery: after starting in 36th place, he climbed up to the 14th position.
In the second qualifications, Bonifacio repeated his early result but unfortunately, due to a sudden rainfall, both drivers ended up off-track like many of their opponents.
Prema will now get on the road again towards Barcelona, where both drivers will line-up for the closing round of ALPS. On the same weekend, they will also be racing at Hockenheim, in the closing round of the European F.3 Championship, and at Monza, in the last outing of the Italian F.3 Series.
