Romeo Ferraris start the second half of the FIA ETCR season at Zolder
Romeo Ferraris embark into the second half of the 2022 season of the FIA ETCR, the championship for fully electric touring cars. The fourth weekend on the calendar, from 8 to 10 July, will see the manufacturer of Opera busy on the historic circuit of Zolder, where Maxime Martin will be the local hero.
The Belgian is currently the best-placed Romeo Ferraris driver in the overall standings, fourth with 200 points. Also thanks to the third-place finish in Budapest, for what up until this stage of the year was the only podium finish not obtained by rival Cupra. On the other hand, Romeo Ferraris occupies the second position in the constructors' ranking with 382 points.
For Martin, as well as for teammates Bruno Spengler (182 points), Giovanni Venturini (110) and Luca Filippi (58), the Zolder round will represent an opportunity to renew the hunt for the first seasonal "King of the Weekend" honors and to check the performance progress of the Giulia ETCR, already capable of showing its speed potential with victories in the heats in the previous events.
The activity on the track will begin with free practice on Friday, followed by Qualifying, Quarter Finals, Semifinals and the two DHL Super Finals on Sunday. As always, the lineup will be split into the "Fast" and "Furious" pools.
Michela Cerruti, Team Principal Romeo Ferraris
"Our season in the FIA ETCR has passed the halfway point and now we want to take a further step in terms of results. This weekend we will be on stage at Zolder, the home track for Maxime, which will undoubtedly have an extra boost. But also Bruno, Giovanni and Luca aspire to a place on the podium, to reap the fruits of the work done so far by the whole team and redeem themselves from some unfavorable episodes in the previous races".
