Foster targets wins in Euroformula Open title hunt at Imola

21.07.2021: Louis Foster says the target for this weekend’s Imola races is no different despite fighting for the Euroformula Open championship; score pole position and win.


Louis Foster says the target for this weekend’s Imola races is no different despite fighting for the Euroformula Open championship; score pole position and win.



With four rounds complete and with four currently scheduled remaining, Odiham teenager Foster trails title rival Cameron Das by 19-points in the standings heading to Italy this weekend for three more races.



Das is in his fifth season of contesting races in the series while CryptoTower Racing Team driver Foster enters most weekends having never driven the tracks on the calendar, including this weekend’s event, in what is his first season competing full-time outside of the UK.



The only venue Foster has driven at before, at Spa, he took a hat-trick of wins in scintillating fashion.



Despite having one eye on the battle with stable-mate Das, Foster says the goal’s remain the same as always.


“The target for this weekend is the same as any other, to put it on pole and win,” said Foster, who is backed by Copart, a global leader in vehicle remarketing and recycling.  We can’t aim for anything else. Jak [Crawford] is missing rounds with other commitments, so the long-term outlook and target based on that is to beat Cam [Das], I’ll be content if I’m finishing ahead of him in each race. But obviously, wins and poles is what I’m aiming for.”



Foster and Crawford have two poles each this year, and despite not having competed at Imola, it is at least one of the tracks Foster is more familiar with thanks to simulators and video games.
The 19-turn, three-mile epic is a favourite with fans and drivers alike, and one that Formula 1 visited in 2020 and 2021.



“The track seems very technical, quite tricky in the first and the middle sector as well,” added Foster. I’m looking forward to it, it’s in a very nice part of Italy where it should be warm, which will add another difficulty with the tyres and fatigue and things like that. That should make things a bit more interesting.


My simulator session this week went well. I’ve driven around Imola more often than somewhere like Hungary just because it’s a bit more well known, it tends to be in a lot of video games. I did a sim endurance race there a while ago so I have a decent idea about the track on simulator stuff.



Obviously that doesn’t necessarily correlate to the real-world. They’ve also changed all of the kerbs since Formula 1 went there last year, so a lot of simulations haven’t updated it like the one I was using. You can take almost every kerb now whereas in the sim you can only take so many. I’ll have to get used to that when I get there.”




Following Imola, the Euroformula Open series will not race again until September 11 in Austria, and Foster said: “I’m going to enjoy the summer break”, but that “it’s been nice to have races in quick succession for the momentum”.



You can watch Foster in action this weekend via Euroformula Open's YouTube channel.
