Young racecar driver Alexander Rossi has been on a tear of late. Sporting GoEnzo.com logos, he stormed to his second win of the season today in the twelfth round of the International Formula Master (IFM) Series at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium.
Starting fourth, the young American was up to second as the field of IFM single-seaters charged through the first corner, before the safety car was deployed following an incident on the grid.
IFM Talent Support Program (TSP) driver Alexander Sims had been left stranded on his P3 slot as the lights went out, with AR Motorsport’s Kelvin Snoeks unable to avoid him, resulting in three laps of safety car period.
Rossi took the lead of the race a lap after the restart, racing to the checkered flag unchallenged, despite a strong drive from Jenzer Motorsport’s Fabio Leimer who finished the 12-lap race less than a second behind.
Rossi: “I had a good start with Alexander [Sims] dropping out; I could focus on passing Josef [Kral] quickly. Then the safety car was out for three laps and I worked very hard to keep the tyres and brakes as warm as possible. I had a very good restart; I was able to get the lead straight away and we almost had a 1-2 for the team but getting both cars in the top three is pretty great too.”
