Roman De Angelis

Long Beach, CA – Apr 11, 2022

Roman and the Heart of Racing team were back on the track this past weekend in California for the Long Beach Grand Prix. After a few tough races, they were ready to get back into the groove behind the wheel and were delighted with their results in qualifying, landing in P7. Roman and co-driver Maxime Martin of the #27 Heart of Racing car started the race strong and quickly moved up the pack. Unfortunately, while in P2 and battling for the lead, bad luck struck them quite literally when they were hit by another car in the race. The pit crew worked tirelessly to try and repair the damage, but with a suspension issue, they had to remove themselves from the race for safety reasons. Thankfully Martin, who was driving during the incident, was not injured.

Roman shared his good spirit on social and with the media after the event, saying that this was a “streak of bad luck”, but the “Heart of Racing team continued to push through”. Roman is now gearing up with the team for the next race in Laguna, where they plan to turn their season around.
