Marco Werner did a few test laps in the Ferrari, finishing third at last year’s Historique Grand Prix in Monte Carlo. “Unfortunately I only sat in this car twice.

From Zolder Marco Werner drifts in the evening to the south. There was already ready the Lotus 22, which Werner competed in Dijon in the FIA ‚Äč‚ÄčLurani Formula Junior Trophy. For the first time in Dijon, he placed the Lotus on the seventh starting position.

But no matter, I’m here to have fun.”
