Francesco Dracone (born September 21, 1983 in Turin) is an Italian racing driver.

Career[edit]

Dracone began racing professionally in the Italian Formula Three Championship in 2002. He raced in that series until 2005. In 2006 he moved to Euroseries 3000 driving for Euronova Racing. He finished 21st in points. He returned in 2007 driving for ASR and 2G Racing finishing 23rd in points. In 2008 he drove for Emmebi Motorsport and improved to 17th in points. He returned to the team and series in 2009 and improved further to 7th in points with a best finish of 5th at Monza. He also competed in the International Superstars Series season finale at Kyalami for Ferlito Motors. In July 2010 he participated in an IZOD IndyCar Series rookie test with Conquest Racing. After passing the test he signed on to compete with the team at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and Infineon Raceway.[1]

He was slowest among drivers who logged a qualifying time at Mid-Ohio but started 23rd on the 27 car grid due to being in the same group as Milka Duno who elected not to participate in qualifying and Graham Rahal who was penalized. Dracone finished the race 3 laps down in 22nd place. He started last at Infineon, despite being a second quicker than Duno. The race saw Dracone spin off track close to the finish and he was credited with 20th place. He finished 37th in the championship.
