Auto racer Michael Lewis’ results in Italy’s Misano circuit last weekend placed him third in the Formula 3 Italia Championship point standings and second in the rookie championship battle.
When the checkered flag waved on lap 20 of Saturday’s 30-minute timed race of 16 drivers, the Laguna Beach 20-year-old achieved a second-place finish. On Sunday, Lewis quickly moved into fifth place on the first lap. As the race progressed, Lewis began defending himself from a charge by Sergio Campana, who went on through the lead pack to finish the race in third position. Lewis crossed the finish line in sixth place when the race concluded on lap 19.
Lewis will return to Irwindale’s Toyota Speedway for races June 18 and 25, but caroms back to Italy for races July 16 and 17.
