A line up of 5 Racing Cars for Malta Formula Racing
This weekend Malta Formula Racing team will be back racing for the second round of the FIA F4 Italian Championship at the prestigious "Enzo e Dino Ferrari" racing circuit at Imola.
The team headed by Danilo Rossi, under the technical supervision of Roberto Venieri, will be managing a lining up of 5 racing cars alongside the two it had in Adria after an agreement reached between the team and Adria International Raceway.
Maltese driver Keith Camilleri and American Zackary Dante will be joined by the team Adria International Raceway drivers, Mattia Drudi and John Altoè from Italy and novice conductor from India Raghunathan Mahaveer.
This collaboration, boosts the moral of the team, after the first debut which both Dante and Camilleri, took in their first experience in the formula category. Camilleri, who finised second in the trophy reserved for "over 18" in round1, still has a good margin of improvement and this circuit may help him, Dante and his new team companion, Mattia Drudi to express better their driving skills.
