Nelson Panciatici (born 26 September 1988 in Reims) is a French racing driver.

Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Panciatici's karting career began in 1998 and continued until 2004.[1] His best championship position was 2nd place in 2004 in the French Championship Elite.[2]

Formula Renault 2.0[edit]

In 2005 he participated in the Formula Renault 2.0 France championship for the first time with the team Epsilon Sport. He finished 13th overall and was 2nd rookie.[1]

In 2006 he raced in both the Formula Renault 2.0 French and Eurocup championships placing 5th in the French championship with 1 win. Since he only raced in 2 of the Eurocup races he was not classified that season.[1]

In 2007 Panciatici was selected to be a part of the Renault Driver Development and continued to race in the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup and French championships. He was very quick in the pre-season testing, but he had a tough season in both the French championship and the Eurocup with only 3 podiums. At the end of the season he switched from the team SG Formula to the team Boutsen-Energy Racing and had some better results there.[3]

Spanish Formula Three[edit]

In 2008 he raced in the Spanish Formula Three Championship with the Q8 Oils Hache Team. He was the runner-up in the overall championship and runner-up in the Spanish Cup (Copa de España), despite scoring more points than champion Natacha Gachnang.[4] He also forayed into the Formula Three Euroseries, appearing at Le Mans, for RC Motorsport. He finished the races in fifteenth and eighteenth places.

GP2 Series[edit]

Panciatici driving for Durango at the Catalunya round of the 2009 GP2 Series season.

For 2009, Panciatici moved up into the GP2 Series, having been announced as the Durango team's second driver on March 21, 2009. Panciatici partnered veteran of the series Davide Valsecchi and Stefano Coletti as Durango failed to improve on their 11th place finish in 2008.[5]

Formula Renault 3.5[edit]

Panciatici will move into the Formula Renault 3.5 Series for the 2010 season, partnering Daniil Move at the newly renamed Lotus Racing Junior Team.[6]
