Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine: Tim Tramnitz tops Zandvoort pre-collective tests

The second session of pre-collective testing for the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine at Zandvoort once again concluded with Tim Tramnitz dominating the field. Today, he was the sole driver to break the 1:43 barrier. Tramnitz, representing R-ace GP, secured the day’s best time during the afternoon session, with a remarkable lap time of 1:42.939. Following closely, Frenchman Maceo Capietto (RPM) finished just over a tenth of a second behind Tramnitz, maintaining his impressive performance from the previous session. 

The third-fastest time was claimed by Andrea Kimi Antonelli (Prema Racing), who outpaced his direct championship rival, Martinius Stenshorne (R-ace GP), who ended the session in fourth position.
