IMOLA 2022: HIGHLY DIFFICULT WEATHER CAUSED MULTIPLE RACING INTERRUPTIONS

Level of competition was very intense in rainy weather

8.5.2022 – Several crashes and interruptions to races caused troubles for KIC Motorsport in Imola – Highly competitive Formula Regional by Alpine European Championship series once again prooved its’ high competition level

Second racing weekend of Formula Regional by Alpine European Championship series season 2022 was driven in extremely difficult and tricky weather conditions at italian F1-circuit of Imola. All three KIC Motorsport drivers faced ultimate challenges as rainy weather caused several crashes and multiple racing interruptions. Therefore KIC Motorsport was ruled out from its’ goals.

Finnish Patrik Pasma substituted Piotr Wisnicki as the polish driver was unable to compete due final school exams. Pasma, italian Francesco Branchi and mexican Santiago Ramos didn’t reach their goals in qualifyings and therefore starting positions for the two 30 minute races proved to be a difficult task among 35 other fellow competitors.

Furthermore as in both races all drivers tacked with very difficult weather conditions and suffered interrupted racing due red flags, Pasma, Branchi and Ramos were left out from points positions.

– We had a good start for the weekend as practice sessions went pretty well. However as we were a bit out from our pace in qualifyings we had to start far behind points positions. Furthermore as Santiago Ramos slipped a bit off road in first race and then we all were interupted due many red and yellow flags as well as safety cars we had to satisfy for positions of 24, 27 and 32, team manager Peter Flythström tells.

– In Sunday the heavy rain caused again ultimate difficulty for all drivers. Then just a bit after the start competitors slided off road and therefore again red flags and safety cars heavily reduced all changes to drive podium positions. Furthermore as Braschi was forced to stop due the crash his fellow competitor had, the positions 20, 24 and 25 weren’t the results we had hoped for, Flythström continues.

Third racing weekend of Formula Regional by Alpine European Championship series is to be driven in 4th weekend of May at traditional street circuit of Monaco.
