Yu Kanamaru takes a positive view of his season


The Japanese racer finished fourth in the Drivers´ championship with his Dallara F312 entered by Emilio de Villota Motorsport

Yu Kanamaru made his debut in the Euroformula Open this season and, from the very beginning in the Winter Series, Emilio de Villota Motorsport driver proved to be a rising star. His personal best came at Autódromo do Algarve, as he was able to finish second behind Poland´s Artur Janosz in Race one, and then three other podium finishes were achieved by him at Nürburgring, Spa-Francorchamps and Monza, other three iconic venues in the calendar.

“To be honest, I was expecting more from this year, but unfortunately we finished 4th in the championship. We struggled to be consistent throughout the year, but we were very competitive almost every weekend. Nevertheless we had very good races and I think some of them were quite remarkable”, Kanamaru stated.
