He stood on the podium twice in this “Formula X Italian Series” round, winning Race 2, which marked his first triumph in car racing

The last race of Mattia Bucci‘s sports season in “Formula X Italian Series”, specifically in the “FX Pro Series” category, is over. The event took place at Misano Adriatico where he achieved the best possible result, conquering his first win in single-seaters and sealing a round that saw him as a protagonist.

Despite uncertain weather conditions on Friday, with rain briefly affecting the circuit, the driver from Abruzzo quickly established himself at the top of the leaderboard: he secured third place in the first Free Practice session and set the fastest time in the second session. During Qualifying, he recorded the third-best lap time of the day after a close battle for Pole Position, which eluded him due to traffic on track.

On Saturday, the young talent from Catignano returned to the podium, finishing third in Race 1. Although he initially secured second place in the early stages of the race, he later lost it. The magic happened in Race 2 on Sunday: starting from the fourth position on the grid, Bucci wasted no time in gaining a crucial second position, which he converted into a victory thanks to a penalty imposed on the driver ahead of him. This triumph was the result of his exemplary performance on the track.

Mattia Bucci expressed his thoughts on this significant result, stating
“This win is very important for me and my family, as it represents the culmination of our sacrifices. I don’t know how to describe this feeling, i’m incredulous! I never expected to achieve such a result in only my third career round in car racing. With a total of three podium finishes in 2023, we established a solid foundation to build upon in 2024. I want to dedicate this success to my family, my manager Giovanni Minardi and Minardi Management, Sandro Giuliani and the entire SG Motors team, my staff and sponsors and i want to thank all those who have supported me throughout me journey. I will immediately begin working for next year.”
