Euroformula to iconic Spa with a 21-car grid with a host of new additions

Welsh squad CF Racing joins with Britons Stefano Leaney and Stuart Wiltshire

RP Motorsport back with Spiess-powered cars for González and Chovet

16-year-old Fabio Colapinto to debut with Drivex, with Andrade switching to HWA engine

Marino Sato arrives to Belgium as points leader ahead of Motopark team mates Liam Lawson and Yuki Tsunoda


The fourth round of the season takes the Euroformula community to the home of the Belgian Grand Prix and one of the most iconic tracks in the world, Spa-Francorchamps.

Nestled in the Ardennes Forest, in Wallonia, the undulating 7.004km circuit has 19 corners - many of which are renowned as driver favourites - and two long straights separated by the iconic Eau Rouge / Raidillon climb.

The championship has visited the circuit every year since 2008, and it always produces great racing with lots of slipstreaming battles.

The fourth round of the season takes the Euroformula community to the home of the Belgian Grand Prix and one of the most iconic tracks in the world, SpaFrancorchamps.
 
Nestled in the Ardennes Forest, in Wallonia, the undulating 7.004km circuit has 19 corners - many of which are renowned as driver favourites - and two long straights separated by the iconic Eau Rouge / Raidillon climb.
 
The championship has visited the circuit every year since 2008, and it always produces great racing with lots of slipstreaming battles.
 
Three drivers will make their Euroformula debut this weekend: Drivex School’s Franco Colapinto, and CF Racing’s Stefano Leaney and Stuart Wiltshire. The 16year-old Argentinean, who will be contesting what is only his fourth car racing event, will drive the Piedrafita-powered Dallara F317 of the Spanish squad, with regular Rui Andrade switching to an HWA-powered car, the same engine equipping the CF Racing cars. 
 
All three new drivers took part in pre-season testing, and have been waiting for the perfect moment to join the championship. Wales-based CF Racing is also a new team to the championship, and is a serial title winner in Great Britain. 
 
On its side, reigning champion RP Motorsport is back to the series, after a tworound hiatus to allow a change of engines, from Piedrafita to Spiess, on his cars. Mexico’s Javier González and Frenchman Pierre-Luois Chovet, who already drove for the Italian squad at the season-opener in Paul Ricard, will be at the wheel. 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
After the fifth and sixth races of the season at Hockenheim two weeks ago, Motopark’s Marino Sato now leads the Euroformula standings over team-mate Liam Lawson. The New Zealander had a dramatic time in both races, and his fellow Red Bull junior and team-mate Yuki Tsunoda joined Sato in winning on Euroformula’s first ever visit to the German circuit. The fourth driver of the German squad, Julian Hanses also climbed to the podium on his home race.
 
A consistent approach has left Teo Martín Motorsport’s Lukas Dunner fourth in the standings, well ahead of team mates Guilherme Samaia and Aldo Festante, while Double R Racing was one of several teams that cracked the unique layout of Hockenheim to take its first podium with Jack Doohan, an opportunity that his team mate Linus Lundquist went also close to at Pau.   Fortec drivers Cameron Das and Calan Williams will aim in Belgium at repeating the strong how put on in Pau. 
 
It looks unlikely there will be rain at Spa this weekend, although the circuit is known to have an unpredictable climatic nature that can impact on the racing.
 
Fans at Sp will enjoy a busy and exciting race programme, which includes also the International GT Open and the GT Cup Open Europe, the two other series promoted by GT Sport, as well as the TCR Europe, the Alpine ELF Europa Cup and the Peugeot Racing Cup.
