Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS Barcelona - Race Preview
Prema Powerteam

18 October 2012

Prema Powerteam will enter its third Formula Renault race in three weeks at

Barcelona. After having lined-up at Mugello on the 7th of October (ALPS

Series) and at Spa-Francorchamps on the 14th of october (NEC Championship), the team, directed by Grazia Rosin, will be on-track at Circuit de Catalunya for the closing round of the ALPS schedule.


The line-up will consist of Bruno Bonifacio and Luca Ghiotto, who had the chance to drive a fast car straight of the box, as they managed to stay in the front rows of the grids and also challenge for podiums - a result achieved by the Brazilian in Belgium.


Grazia Troncon

"It's been an interesting tour-de-force, but it was necessary to improve the knowledge of the car and get going in Formula Renault before joining full-time in 2013. The early results have been incredibly encouraging compared to the top teams in Europe, and we were quite surprised by that. On the other hand, we realized that we're working in the right direction in order to keep the pace with the frontrunners".
