Regalia wants to return to the good results at Spa

Facu Regalia wants to be back to the top places at Spa-Francorchamps in the next weekend and start a good stream of results in the last part of the Formula BMW Europe season.

The Belgian weekend, the second before the end of the championship, it's held at one of the most exciting circuits of the world, which has fantastic corners as the Bus Stop, La Source, Blanchimont and, mainly, Eau Rouge and Raidillon.

To this racing weekend the Spanish-Argentinean driver has as goal "return to the level that I showed in the first races of the season. The Hockenheim and the Hungaroring races didn't end as I expected. At Spa-Francorchamps I want to achieve good results, but we have to be careful because there weren't any official test in the winter and we couldn't test as we liked".

Last season Facu Regalia ended both Spa-Francorchamps races in seventh, but this year and "without any chance of winning the championship, I'll race without any pressure. I don't have a particular and simple goal I just want to give my best, but to be in a good level we have to have a good car". In the championship the eighteen years old driver is fifth and is the best of his team.

The timetable is the usual one for Grands Prix with free practice from 08.50 to 09.15 on Friday, and qualifying a short while later from 12.50 to 13.15. Then the first of the two eight lap races on the 7.004 kilometre track, which is the longest track the series visits, will be at 09.45 on Saturday and the second on Sunday at 08.30. All these times are CET.
