news313/10/2011 - Matteo Beretta confident at Jerez about European F.3 Open
Si disputerà il prossimo fine settimana il penultimo atto stagionale dell’ European F.3 Open, la serie che, dopo la tappa italiana andata in scena ad inizio mese sulla pista di Monza, si concluderà con la doppia trasferta spagnola a Jerez e successivamente il 29 / 30 Ottobre Barcellona.

Matteo Beretta riparte fiducioso in vista dell’imminente impegno agonistico dopo le ottime potenzialità espresse sulla pista di casa davanti ai propri amici e supporters: il pilota lombardo infatti dopo il buon 5° tempo in qualifica, ha ottenuto il 7° posto in gara 1, mentre nella seconda frazione è stato coinvolto nella bagarre iniziale dovendo rimontare da fondo classifica fino alla 7° posizione. Certamente il portacolori del team RP Motorsport con un po’ più di fortuna avrebbe potuto raccogliere risultati di assoluto livello e nettamente alla sua portata.

Matteo infatti si è dimostrato in costante crescita nell’arco dell’anno, raccogliendo i frutti del suo impegno profuso con continuità dall’inizio della stagione ed in ottima sinergia con il personale del team RP Motorsport e a Jerez, su una pista tecnica e impegnativa, le sue doti velocistiche avranno modo di emergere ulteriormente.

MATTEO BERETTA: “E’ stato un peccato non aver potuto concretizzare l’elevato potenziale espresso a Monza, è stato un week end davvero sfortunato! Adesso sono concentrato e motivato in vista dell’impegno sulla pista spagnola, un tracciato molto selettivo che apprezzo particolarmente. Ci tengo davvero tanto a chiudere la stagione 2011 con delle belle prestazioni! ”.

news227/10/2011 - Matteo Beretta at Barcellona for the last of’ European f.3 Open
La stagione 2011 dell’ European F.3 Open vedrà l’epilogo questo fine settimana a Barcellona dove, sul tracciato spagnolo, si sfideranno per l’ultima volta in una doppia gara i protagonisti di questo importante campionato. Tra i nomi di spicco ci sarà anche quello di Matteo Beretta, il veloce pilota lombardo che ha già dimostrato in più occasioni nel corso dell’anno di essere estremamente determinato e competitivo: purtroppo la cattiva sorte gli ha impedito di concretizzare in pieno il potenziale espresso in pista. Gli addetti ai lavori lo considerano comunque uno dei giovani più talentuosi emersi nel corso dell’anno, alla luce anche dell’ottimo lavoro di messa a punto e sviluppo della Dallara F308 – Toyota preparata dal team RP Motorsport.

La pista catalana si presenta congeniale alle caratteristiche di guida di Matteo, infatti nelle sessioni di test sostenute, il driver lecchese si è posizionato con continuità ai vertici delle classifiche, risultando estremamente costante e continuo nei tempi sul giro.

MATTEO BERETTA: “Spero di raccogliere due bei risultati sul circuito di Barcellona per concludere al meglio la stagione 2011. La pista mi piace particolarmente, alterna dei tratti molto veloci a dei curvoni in appoggio molto impegnativi. Sarà importante trovare un buon compromesso nell’assetto per poter essere al top lungo tutto il tracciato. Non sarà un week end facile perché molti rivali hanno voglia di concludere anche loro la stagione con un buon risultato e la lotta in vetta alle classifiche sarà ancora più combattuta. Sono fiducioso e spero di finire la stagione con due belle prestazioni! “.

Dopo le prime due tappe stagionali disputate a Valencia e a Magny Cours, il campionato European F.3 Open fa tappa questo fine settimana sul prestigioso circuito di Spa Francorchamps per il terzo appuntamento che vede tra i piloti di primo piano Matteo Beretta.
Il pilota lecchese quest’anno si sta cimentando con notevole grinta e dedizione in questa esperienza internazionale supportato al meglio dal personale del team RP Motorsport:
Matteo infatti ha stretto una collaborazione molto proficua con i tecnici che approntano la sua Dallara F308 – Toyota a partire dai primi test stagionali disputati tra le altre piste anche sull’impianto belga.
Il giovane driver lombardo nei due giorni di test effettuati a Spa ha potuto conoscere il tracciato e iniziare il lavoro sul set up della monoposto, dimostrando ancora una volta una sorprendente capacità e rapidità di adattamento all’impegnativa pista belga.

MATTEO BERETTA: “Sono molto fiducioso in vista di questo impegno dopo aver sostenuto una buona sessione di test le scorse settimane a Monza. Mi auguro che il tempo sia bello in quanto in caso di pioggia verrebbero rimescolati i valori in campo e il tracciato si presenterà ancora più insidioso, di certo non sarebbe la condizione ideale per gareggiarci per la prima volta”.
