Silverstone Circuit awaits after summer break


The summer holiday is underway but Silverstone is on the short term horizon

With the summer break coming up it wouldn’t be nice to think that we have not got any Euroformula Open action. Quite the contrary the teams and drivers from the series are already working as they will get the second half of the season underway at Silverstone on 2-3 September. Silverstone, the heart of British motorsports, will resume the season after an eight-week hiatus.

Silverstone made its first appearance on the calendar in 2013. Since then up to the present, the new track layout has always produced action-packed Formula 3 races. Current IndyCar driver Ed Jones and Uruguay’s Santiago Urrutia claimed both wins back in 2013. The following year Thailand’s Sandy Stuvik made it a double triumph on his way to the title.  Japan’s Yu Kanamaru and Russia’s Konstantin Tereschenko earned the top step of the podium in 2015. Finally, Italy’s Leonardo Pulcini and Poland’s Antoni Ptak took race one and race two wins, the latter securing his maiden win in the series.

Briton Harrison Scott (RP Motorsport) leads the Drivers’ standings on 179 points heading into the fifth round at his home event. Behind, Nikita Troitskiy (Drivex) currently sits seconds in the standings ahead of Ameya Vaidyanathan (Carlin), Thiago Vivacqua (Campos Racing) and Jannes Fittje (Fortec Motorsports). They all from five different teams!

Troitskiy lies first ahead in the Rookie class on 64 points, 18 points ahead of Fittje. Behind, Devlin DeFrancesco (Carlin), Simo Laaksonen (Campos Racing) and Petru Florescu (Fortec Motorsports) round off the top five.

RP Motorsport holds the first place in the teams’ classification on 68 points. Drivex is now second ahead of Carlin, Campos Racing and Fortec Motorsports.
