The Champions of the International GT Open and of the Euroformula Open were the stars of a glamurous evening at the Casino de Madrid, one of the landmark historic palaces in the heart of the Spanish capital.

Harrison Scott, the 2017 Champion of the Euroformula Open, collected his award and accompanied by a delegation of RP Motorsport led by Graziano Rocca, the latter being awarded the Teams’ Trophy. Nikita Troitskiy, who was absent due to testing in Abu Dhabi, was represented by Maria Catarineu from Drivex to collect the Vice-Champion and Rookies’ trophies. Meanwhile, Ricky Taylor from Carlin Motorsport collected the third’s trophy for Devlin DeFrancesco.

The Vice President of the Royal Spanish Federation of Motorsport (RFEdA), Joaquín Verdegay, honoured the ceremony with his presence and awarded the top honours. In his address, he stressed “the excellent work done over the years by GT Sport, a Spanish organization that is among the top players at international level, in a motorsport context that has gone through many challenges recently”.

Over 90 guests attended the evening hosted by Jesús Pareja, CEO of GT Sport, who in his address, underlined: “The Euroformula enjoying great stability, in a challenging period for single-seater formulae, where we see a lot of changes and also casualties. We were right in sticking to the strengths of our formula (great performance, reasonable running costs, top circuits) and defending its philosophy. Today, even without the Formula3 label, our Euroformula is the only series truly respecting the essence of Formula 3!”
