“We had a very successful Formula BMW Europe season. It was the first time we ran a truly international series, and to be part of the support programme for Formula 1 is a great experience, one which will definitely pay off in the near future – Jonas said. So much so that we will repeat the same programme in 2009, changing one of the venues at a circuit yet to be decided. Formula BMW Europe 2008 was very tight, to the point that three drivers were contending the title until the very last round. Also, in one of the last rounds, the first 10 drivers at the chequered flag were from 8 different teams, which is a testimony of the high competitive level of all teams involved in the series. We also had some very talented rookies like Christensen and Mengersdorf, both coming from karting, and this is very promising as more and more formula talents have sharpened their racecraft in karting.”
The collaboration between Vroom and Formula BMW might soon produce another surprise: Elena Lana, one of Vroom’s test drivers, will test the FB02 in Madrid and report on it for all our readers in one of Vroom’s next issues, but this is yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned to get Elena’s experience on Formula BMW FB02 car.
