Trophy Classic Formula 3

In the Trophée F3 Classic, an aspiring champion can hide another. After Nelson Lukes in 2015, it’s up to Hugo Carini to make a resounding arrival there. Just 20 years old, this defector from Formula Ford Kent, where he won the title last year, has the luxury of winning this afternoon's first race in the category. In front of the multiple champion Valerio Leone. A first one for him, but certainly not for its frame, the Ralt RT3 formerly crossed the hands of a certain Emmanuelle Pirro !

Race 2 :

And two! As an expert of the F3, the young Hugo Carini settles down immediately to the command, never to leave it for ten laps. In a few seconds Valerio Leone and Fred Lajoux engage in a duel at all times for the ultimate advantage of the Monegasque. Regular Pascal Gerbout and Englishman Ian Jacobs complete the Top 5 just before Davide Leone, the young son of Valerio. Unlucky, Jean-Pierre Eynard-Machet evolved in 6th position before abandoning the race.
