Monolite Racing is delighted to announce a new entry for the second round of the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine at Barcelona. The Italian squad, led by Rudi Mariotto will field a third car for Kirill Smal.
The Kyrgyzstan-licensed driver already entered the pre-season testing with the team at Le Castellet and Monza and quickly proved to be very quick. In fact, Smal has even ended up in the top-5 in several sessions as one of the series' best rookies to date.
Smal will make his series debut after his previous Formula 4 experiences that saw him finish third in the Italian and UAE championships in 2021, and fourth in the 2022 Spanish series.
Rudi Mariotto, team principal: "Kirill will complete our lineup starting with the second round of the season in Barcelona. I am sure that he will prove to be a key piece for the team. With his experience, he can help the whole team grow up in the shortest possible time."
