Latvian racer adds name to Monza entry list
Latvian driver Harald Schlegelmilch will make his FIA Formula Two Championship debut this weekend (28/30 September) when he joins the grid for rounds 15 and 16 at Italy’s famous Monza circuit.
The 24-year-old brings with him a broad range of experience beginning in 2003 with Formula Baltic before going on to sample Formula Renault 2.0, Formula BMW and Formula 3 Euro Series – enjoying a number of race wins and podiums. More recently, Schlegelmilch sampled the GP2 Asia Series together with Formula Renault 3.5, with his last outing being in the 2010 in the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany before being forced to sit on the sidelines.
Speaking to Formulatwo.com Schlegelmilch said: “It’s great to be back out racing again and I can’t wait to race at Monza, a track I love and know well. I haven’t competed properly in single seaters since 2009 but hopefully the F2 test beforehand will help me to get up to speed quickly. I’ve not set myself any goals for the weekend, I’m just going to try and do the best job I can!”
The final Formula Two rounds take place at Monza from 28 – 30 September with pre-event testing beforehand on 27 September.
