Motopark has a revised line-up for this weekend’s Euroformula round at Monza, as Levente Revesz joins the team.
Jakob Bergmeister, who is currently sixth in the standings with two podiums, is unable to compete and Revesz will take over his car. The 18-year-old Hungarian steps up from Formula Regional European Championship, where he lies 25th in the standings with two points. Last year he came 28th in the championship.
Motopark’s announcement of Revesz indicates he will contest further Euroformula rounds, with races at Mugello next week. Revesz would be unable to drive at the Barcelona season finale as it is on the same date as FREC’s final round.
Having withdrawn from the last Euroformula round at the Red Bull Ring, Noda Racing has decided not to return for this weekend but will still be at Monza as team boss Hideki Noda has decided to enter his daughter Juju into the supporting BOSS GP races.
Noda will be racing a Formula Renault 3.5 car (at the same level as modern-day Formula 2 cars) in this weekend’s BOSS GP races at Monza rather than return to Euroformula which is also at the track. She has recently been testing the Dallara T12 at several circuits, including at Mugello today where she was slower than drivers in third-tier GP3 cars.
The absence of Bergmeister and Noda from the Euroformula grid means there are no drivers competing for Rookie Trophy honours at Monza. Bergmeister currently leads Noda by 10 points in the rookie classification.
Joshua Dufek and Charlie Wurz will continue to drive for Motopark’s Japanese satellite operation CryptoTower Racing Team after making their debuts last time out, and NV Racing’s Paolo Brajnik is absent through a work committment meaning the series will have its joint smallest field of 2023 with just eight cars.
