Just two weeks after the previous round at Vallelunga, the single-seaters return to the circuit from Friday September 23 to Sunday September 25
Rome 22/09/2016 – Just two events remain in the 2016 Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth: the first of which, starting tomorrow, will be disputed at the Enzo and Dino Ferrari Autodromo of Imola. It is a return to the circuit that hosted the third round of the series on 27 – 29 May this year (where Marcos Siebert, Mick Schumacher and Juan Correa took the wins). The historic and challenging circuit could give an indication as to who may ultimately win this year’s Driver’s Championship, along with the Team and Rookie titles. The Women’s Trophy meanwhile, has already been secured by Fabienne Wohlwend..
The regulations provide that three races over the weekend contribute to championships on offer: outright, the Rookie Trophy, Women’s Trophy and the Team’s Trophy. Leading the outright championship is the Argentine Marcos Siebert ahead of the German Mick Schumacher, the Mexican Raul Guzman, the Estonian Juri Vips and the American Juan Correa. In the Rookie Trophy, Juri Vips leads after he overtook the Italian Simone Cunati (who is now second), third is Juan Correa, fourth the Indian Kush Maini and fifth another Italian in Lorenzo Colombo. The classification of the Team’s Championship sees Prema Power Team with a commanding lead over Jenzer Motorsport followed by Kfzteile24 Mücke Motorsport, DR Formula and RB Racing.
