Paul Aron sets Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine pole position record at Mugello

Paul Aron once again was the fastest driver in qualifying in the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine. The Estonian, who celebrated the team title with Prema Racing in Barcelona, put everyone behind setting the best time of 1:42.723 at Mugello. 

Dino Beganovic finished the session 0.248s away from teammate Aron and will start from the second row this afternoon. An excellent result for the Swedish driver, who will only need to finish the race in the top 4 to become champion.

In Group B the fastest driver was FA Racing’s Victor Bernier (1:42.908), who will start from the front row thanks to his excellent form already shown in Spain last weekend. Just 0.018s behind the Frenchman was rookie leader Leonardo Fornaroli (Trident Motorsport), who will start from fourth position alongside Beganovic. 

Joshua Dufek (Van Amersfoort Racing) lines up on the third row alongside Maceo Capietto (Monolite Racing), while Nicolas Baptiste (FA Racing) shares row four of the grid with Gabriel Bortoleto (R-ace GP). Kas Haverkort (Van Amersfoort Racing) and Hadrien David (R-ace Gp) complete the top 10.

The first race of the weekend is scheduled at 14.10pm (30’+ 1lap), with live streaming on official YouTube and Facebook of the series (links at
