Lorenzo Fluxa will stay in Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine in 2022 and will run with a winning outfit R-ace GP.
The seventeen-year-old Spaniard competed with R-ace GP in the Formula Asia Regional Championship in recent weeks and had the best result of second place in the second race of the first weekend of Abu Dhabiand he will now race with the FRECA team.
Fluxá scored zero points in his 2021 FRECA rookie season as he raced for Van Amersfoort Racebut the young Spaniard is hoping for a much better 2022 campaign, not least thanks to a competitive FRAC campaign.
“I’m really looking forward to racing with R-ace GP this year,” said Fluxá, who joins the already confirmed Gabriel Bortoletto in the French team.
“Over the past two years the team has achieved great results in the Championship and I can’t wait to start working with them and achieve as much success as possible.”
Dufek continues with Van Amersfoort Racing
Dufek is another seventeen-year-old who will switch to Formula 3 machines in 2022, with the Austrian/Swiss driver completing Van Amersfoort Racing’s line-up.
He raced for Van Amersfoort Racing in 2021 in both Italian and ADAC Formula 4 championships, finishing sixth overall in the Italian series and seventh overall in the German championship. He took one victory out of the thirty-six races he entered in both classes last year.
And Dufek hopes the experience he gained with the team last year will benefit him as he steps up to FRECA for the first time where he will partner the already confirmed Kas Haverkort and Levente Revesz.
“Being able to continue my career with Van Amersfoort Racing is a highlight for me,” says Dufek. “We’ve had an amazing year together, covering two extremely tough leagues in one season.
“I have learned so much during this year, both on and off the track, so I am really happy to be able to continue improving with VAR this year. Although I know the driving characteristics will not be similar due to the use of different techniques and tyres, I appreciate the opportunity to familiarize myself with the Formula Regional car during the Asian rounds.
“I feel extremely ready to attack the new season with VAR. Like last year, I know it will be a difficult season with a lot to learn, but I am convinced that we will do well!
