Draco Racing is a motorsport team from Italy. It currently operates in the World Series by Renault, but has also taken part in Formula Opel Lotus, International Formula 3000 and Euro Formula 3000.

Career[edit]

Formula Opel Lotus Euroseries[edit]

Draco was founded in 1989 by Adriano and Nadia Morini, and entered the Formula Opel Lotus Euroseries. In its first year, the Italian takes Brazilian driver Eduar Neto to second place in F. Opel, with five wins. The team continued to be one of the most competitive in the series for the following years, winning the F. Opel championship in 1990 with Rubens Barrichello, 1991 with Pedro Lamy, 1993 with Patrick Crinelli and 1994 with Marco Campos (in 1992, Gualter Salles was second).

International Formula 3000[edit]

Draco stayed in Formula Opel until the championship's demise in 1996, but the year before Adriano Morini took his team to Formula 3000, creating the outfit specifically for Marco Campos. Morini took a gamble on the Brazilian driver's talent, but he ultimately lost it when 18-year old Campos died in the race at Magny-Cours. Draco was never so successful in F3000, even with drivers such as Ricardo Zonta (in 1996) and Bruno Junqueira (in 1998) and left the series after the 1999 season.

Euro Formula 3000[edit]

In 2000, Draco moved down to the Italian F3000 Championship (now Euro 3000), for older 1996 cars. This proved to be the wisest move, as Felipe Massa completely dominated the series in 2001, taking the championship title, a performance repeated in 2003 with Augusto Farfus and 2004 with Nicky Pastorelli.

World Series by Renault[edit]

In 2005, Draco changed series, again, to the World Series by Renault, where their lead drivers Pastor Maldonado and Miloš Pavlović finished third in the 2006 and 2007 seasons. In 2008 the drivers was Bertrand Baguette and Marco Barba. In 2009 the Draco Team won the World Series Renault 3.5 Championship with the Team Title and the Driver Title with Bertrand Baguette.
