Cameron Das and Dev Gore put their Bertil Roos Racing School training to good use over the weekend at the Euroformula Open Series races at Monza, Italy.
Das, the 18-year-old from Baltimore, recorded his fourth podium finish of the season at the natural home of the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday. Noted as a very fast track, Das wasn’t immune to the challenges the Monza course presented.
He crashed out of Saturday’s race for his worst finish of the season. However, he came back and used the techniques learned at Bertil Roos Racing School’s instruction of the highly intricate, European-style road racing for an impressive Sunday drive.
Using the BRRS training as his foundation, Das improved from a sixth-place starting spot to finish third in the Carlin Motorsport-prepared Dallara race car. Brazilian driver Felipe Drugovich swept both weekend races to already clinch the season championship.
Despite Saturday’s setback, Das remains the highest-ranking American in the Euroformula Open standings, currently fifth overall. It was the second straight weekend event in which he recorded a podium finish, also finishing third at England’s famed Silverstone course.
Gore, the 21-year-old Atlanta resident, scored points in both races in just his second Euroformula Open weekend. Racing as a teammate to Das behind the steering wheel of a Carlin Motorsport Dallara, Gore posted a ninth-place finish on Saturday and followed up with a 10th-place run on Sunday.
The Euroformula Open Series heads to Jerez, Spain for its next weekend of races on Oct. 6-7.
