Formula 3 Italy

Champion with Spiess power

In Italy, single-seater racing clearly represents the main attraction in the motor racing world. Therefore, success is particularly important, there. And even more so if you succeed in winning a title. And again this feat was achieved with power made in Germany. Or, more precisely: in the Italian Formula 3 Championship, with an Opel engine tuned by the manufacturer's long-time partner, Spiess.

At the wheel of his Dallara F304 Opel-Spiess, Team Passoli driver Mauro Massironi succeeded in winning the 2006 Italian Formula 3 Championship early, at Vallelunga, one week prior to season finale. And he did so in impressive style by winning nine of the 16 rounds contested so far and securing eight pole positions.

To secure the title, the Italian had to prevail against a competitive field and will be celebrated as the big winner, in the season finale held at Misano. The 2006 Italian Formula 3 Championship grid usually featured 24 cars, with a big part of the field, eight drivers, relying on the proven combination Opel-Spiess.
