Bruno Carneiro(17) achieved great results in Suzuka and Fuji and collected the first point for AlbirexRT in the 2017 All Japan F3 Championship!
Suzuka: Two 7th Place finishes at the challenging and fast Suzuka Circuit, were the signal that both Bruno Carneiro and the AlbirexRT were knocking at the door of Top6 points paying positions. The young rookie driver made very mature races and incredible passes bringing home the best results of the season at that point.
Fuji: With the F3 cars reaching Top Speeds of 257 Km/h (160 mph), Fuji Speedway is sorrounded by outstanding hills and mountains and of course the famous Mount Fuji, right next to the charming city of Gotemba in Japan. The season has been a constant progress for both rookie driver Bruno Carneiro and his team AlbirexRT, which started using the Dallara F315 only a few months ago, a car that is vastly different than the F308 that the team has used in the past.
But each weekend have brought more learning and results with with three P12 finishes in Okayama, two P7 finishes in Suzuka and a P6 and a P7 in Fuji, awarding Bruno Carneiro his first point in the extremely competitive Japanese F3 Championship.
Race 1 in Fuji was a downpour. Bruno started P11 and working his way thru the field, finished the race in P6 after fantastic battles with very talented racers like Ritomo Miyata (Tom's Racing Dallara - Toyota F316), 2016 Japanese F4 Champion.
Race 2 was in dry conditions and starting P10, Carneiro fought his way to a another 6th Place finished, but after being blocked by a back marker on the final lap, lost P6 to Ai Miura (Exedy Dallara-Volkswagen F315) and completed the race in 7th Place.
