HOCKENHEIM, GERMANY – The latest FRECA pre-season test was an encouraging one for KIC Evans GP, as drivers Alex Sawer and Costa Toparis achieved top-eight finishes during the final session before the season begins.

Both drivers have continued to build on the progress that they have made during their previous outings.

Sawer, fresh from achieving a race win in the Chinese F4 support race at the Formula One Grand Prix in Shanghai, made significant improvements.

Toparis once again demonstrated his potential in FIA Formula Regional machinery, continuing the momentum built from his season in the FIA Formula Regional Middle East Championship (FRMEC).

Both drivers receive technical support from Evans GP personnel under a partnership with Finnish FRECA team KIC Motorsport, who also field Thai driver Nandhavud Bhirombakhdi.

Josh Evans, Evans GP Team Principal: β€œIt’s good to end pre-season testing on a positive note with these top- eight finishes. Both of our drivers have made a lot of progress ahead of first race weekend of the season.”

The first round of the 2024 FRECA season will get underway on 10-12 May. Both qualifying sessions and races will be streamed live on the official FRECA YouTube channel.
