THE FRECA CHAMPIONSHIP
Trident Motorsport expands its presence in the motorsport elite. Starting from the 2022 season, the team with Head Office in Milan and operational headquarters in Ossona will also be present directly in the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine. The new challenge adds to the traditional and consolidated participation in the FIA Formula 2 Championship and FIA Formula 3 Championship. Trident Motorsport's goal is to strengthen its presence in the most representative categories of the international automotive scene by completing a supply chain capable of helping young talents to arrive at the gates of Formula 1. The new operational headquarters of the Team in Ossona, where it was also transferred the simulator and the relative technical staff, constitutes an important step forward for the Team's operations and will allow to obtain important synergies at a technical and human level within the group. The management of the new program will be entrusted to the experience and expertise of Luca Zerbini, who boasts a vast background in the world of Motorsport and represents the most suitable professional figure to make this important step in the history of Trident Motorsport.
The Format of the Formula Regional European Championship by Renault is designed to give young participating drivers the opportunity to cover many kilometers on the weekend of the race and, at the same time, to compete in two distinct races whose starting order is established by two distinct qualifications. In fact, unlike other categories that have more races over the weekend but whose final result is conditioned by the performance of a single qualification and the result of Race 2, in the FRECA the two races are independent, thus giving the drivers the opportunity to achieve the maximum result also in the second race in case the first went badly.
The Freca championship is made up of 10 events and each event includes two races called RACE1 and RACE2.
FRIDAY: 2 FREE PRACTICE sessions of 50 minutes each.
SATURDAY: a 15-minute QUALIFYING valid for RACE 1 lasting 30 minutes + one lap.
SUNDAY: a 15-minute QUALIFYING valid for RACE 2 lasting 30 minutes + one lap.
The peculiarity of these qualifications is that, given the large number of drivers present (36), from 2022 the organizer has decided to divide each qualification into two groups, GROUP A and GROUP B which should be divided according to the Championship standings. processed after each Event and which will work as follows:
GROUP A the 1st, the 3rd the 5th the 7th etc
GROUP B composed of the 2nd, 4th, 6th etc of the Championship standings.
The official calendar also includes collective test sessions to be carried out before the Championship in Monza, Imola and Paul Ricard as well as other days prior to some race weekends.
