Tymek Kucharczyk says, “Hopefully, it brings some future opportunities” as the Pole makes his FRECA debut at Monza.
The Polish driver is debuting with Saintéloc Racing and has been driving with Douglas Motorsport in GB3 in 2023.
Kucharczyk said it has been a tricky debut in the championship as he gets to grips with a new car, but he is gaining knowledge over the weekend.
“It’s a difficult one to hop in a car after all the season in GB3, first time in the car, first time on the track.
“New team for me as well. It’s not been an easy situation, but we took the opportunity to start in FRECA, which is good—a new series.
“More mileage in my career is always a good thing. And then just learning a new car and experiencing the new series. Hopefully, it brings some future opportunities as well because of it.”
The 17-year-old has endured a lacklustre weekend so far, with problems in the opening practice session and an electrical issue in qualifying preventing him from setting a time.
The Saintéloc Racing driver said when asked by Parc Fermé that the issues have been troubling, but the weekend is all about learning.
“It’s obviously not easy when you have an issue in first practice. You do only two laps, and then in qualifying that, you cannot do any laps at all.
“It’s been frustrating, but this is motorsport. It could also happen in any other series. I mean, I can’t do anything about it, really. But just learning and experiencing.”
Kucharczyk has shown superb raw speed in GB3, scoring two third places at Spa and Silverstone.
The Pole has two rounds left of the GB3 championship in October at Zandvoort and Donington Park.
