Driver switch in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship
The Auto GP championship celebrated an historic race 2 at Imola.
Italian female racer Michela Cerruti cruised to her maiden win in the Coloni-promoted series in a spectacular fashion. The 27-year-old from Milan scored the first open-wheel win for a female racer in the last 5 years, and the first with an high-power open-wheel car in the European modern era.
Markus Pommer (Super Nova) scored his third pole position of the year in qualifying for this weekend’s Auto GP round at Imola.
For the quick German it’s also the third straight pole as he edged returning Euronova racer Kimiya Sato by four tenths of a second. The Japanese has seen his points advantage go down a bit again as the pole handed two more points to his opponent.
The fifth edition of the Auto GP championship has reached its half point.
The series, which runs powerful cars with Lola chassis and 550hp Zytek engines, will approach its fifth round of the season at Monza. Teams and drivers will face another prestigious stage where legendary, where Formula 1 battles went on.
