(Prema Racing press release)
PREMA Racing announces that Dino Beganovic will contest his third consecutive season under the team’s banner. The 17-year-old Swedish racer recently wrapped up a positive Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine rookie campaign, scoring two class wins, one overall podium, and one pole position. He is now set for his second year in the highly-competitive European series.
Beganovic, who is supported by the Ferrari Driver Academy, started his journey with PREMA in 2020, when he made his single-seater debut in Formula 4. By the end of the year, he was third in the championship, which prompted the step to Formula Regional.
Despite the first year of the revamped series proving extremely challenging, Beganovic consistently climbed his learning curve and finally joined the front-running pack by the final events. The team is now looking forward to what lies ahead.
Rene Rosin – Team Principal
“We are delighted to have Dino with us for another season. He improved a lot through the course of the year, and with the potential, he has shown in the last few races, we are sure he can be a contender for the championship. We all know that he is also extremely dedicated and hard-working, so he has been a perfect fit for the team since the beginning. We think his presence will be beneficial for everybody on board.”
“I’m thrilled to be back in the Formula Regional European Championship next year and extend my relationship with Prema and the Ferrari Driver Academy for another season,” says Dino Beganovic. “We worked incredibly hard to put ourselves in a position to win races towards the end of the year, and I can’t wait to try and build on that momentum in 2022. The championship is fantastic and I’m excited to be back!”
