USA Driver Kaylen Frederick brings home a 5th place, fastest race lap, and podium for 2nd fastest rookie!

September 22nd – 23rd,  2018
Pilot ONE Racing Kaylen Frederick entered the 5th round of the EuroFormula Open arriving at Monza to a new series, team, car, tires (Michelin) and track. The fast and flowing track lends itself well to the Dallara F312, allowing Kaylen to quickly come up to speed. Racing with the 5-time repeat champions RP Motorsports out of Piacenza, Italy permitted a seamless and fast transition to the new surrounds and European context.
