Facundo "Facu" Regalia (born 23 November 1991 in Buenos Aires) is an Argentine racing driver. He competed in his first two Formula BMW seasons under a Spanish racing licence.

Career[edit]

Karting[edit]

Regalia began karting in 2006 and raced primarily in Spain for the majority of his career.[1]

Formula BMW[edit]

Regalia began his formula racing career in 2008 in the newly created Formula BMW Europe with EuroInternational. He finished sixteenth overall in the championship, with nine point-scoring finishes and 60 points.[2]

Regalia remained in the series for the following season but switched to Josef Kaufmann Racing. He improved to eighth in standings, taking thirteen points-scoring positions in sixteen races. In 2010, Regalia completed his third season, joining Eifelland Racing. He finished eighth in the championship for the second successive season, achieving his first podium at Zandvoort.[3]

Formula Three[edit]

2011 saw Regalia move to the Italian Formula Three Championship, competing for Arco Motorsport.[4] He finished tenth in the championship with two podiums at Imola and Vallelunga.[5] Also in 2011, he joined Mücke Motorsport to compete in Formula 3 Euro Series in the finale at Hockenheim.[6] He had two finishes on the tenth position and retired in the last race of the week-end.

In 2012 Regalia switched to the European F3 Open Championship, joining Campos Racing.[7]

Auto GP World Series[edit]

As well as his European F3 Open commitments, Regalia also participates in the Auto GP World Series with Campos Racing.[7]

GP3 Series[edit]

Regalia made his GP3 Series debut, in the fourth round of the 2012 season at Silverstone. He replaced Jakub Klášterka at Jenzer Motorsport.[8] In 2013, Regalia competed with ART Grand Prix with whom he finished runner-up to Daniil Kvyat.

GP2 Series[edit]

In 2014, Regalia graduated to GP2 with Hilmer Motorsport. After just four rounds where he failed to score a point, Regalia left the team and the series.[9]

Formula 3.5[edit]

Regalia signed with Zeta Course for the 2015 season.[10] However, the team withdrew from the sport due to lack of funding. Regalia attempted to enter the sport with Comtec Racing,[11] but terminated his contract after three days with the team, leaving him without a drive.[12]
