In the homeland of the famous poet Dante Alighieri, spotlights were put on the Formula ACI CSAI Abarth Championship again, last week end. Set aside the third round, the Italian championship is now ready to enter the second half of the season and the standing is still far to be defined.
Analyzing the Italian series data, the “perfect number” appears several times: besides the number of races still to be run (Imola, Misano and Monza) and many others which have already been raced, three is also the number of the drivers who finished the race within few points (Michele Beretta, Simone Iaquinta and Lukas Moraes), all behind Alessio Rovera, who is the leader in the overall results. Many other drivers competed for the win in the last race event.
The Tuscan race week end started with Alessio Rovera’s double pole, thanks to which the young driver has taken six out of six pole-starts until now. But Michele Beretta and Simone Iaquinta reversed the situation once again and, in race -2 and race -3 respectively, they kept the race high-spirited with a view to the second half.
“The Formula ACI CSAI Abarth is a high-level Championship. It’s a training series for the youngsters who want to face up to the world of Formulas. We saw interesting races at the Mugello, each of them was won by a different driver”, says Gian Carlo Minardi “Now we’re entering the second half of the season with at least four drivers pretending for the title. The ACI CSAI is already working for the 2014 season, in order to make this Formula more and more attractive to new teams and racers”, explains the ACI CSAI Federation School Supervisor and Ferrari cooperator.
The Formula ACI CSAI Abarth’s next race week end will take place on September 1st at the Enzo and Dino Ferrari circuit in Imola.
