The Prema team, partnered by Acronis, has announced that upcoming Swedish star Dino Beganovic will drive for them in the Regional European Championship by Alpine in 2021.
Beganovic is no stranger to the successful Prema outfit, having driven for the team for his rookie campaign in the 2020 Italian Formula 4 Championship. The 16-year-old’s raw pace and racecraft was immediately apparent as he secured two pole positions, five podiums and a maiden win at Imola.
“It feels amazing to continue my partnership with Prema and the Ferrari Driver Academy stepping up to Formula Regional by Alpine in 2021 and also getting the opportunity to race in the Asian F3 Championship in selected rounds,” commented Beganovic. “We work very well together and I really enjoy the collaboration as it feels like being part of a second family. After a very positive year in Formula 4 together, I can’t wait to continue our great work this year.”

Prema have clearly marked down Beganovic as one for the future, and his potential has also been recognised by the biggest name in the sport, the Swede having joined the Ferrari Driver Academy program in early 2020.
“It’s great for us to continue working with Dino for 2021,” added Angelo Rosin, Team Principal. “He showed he is a talented driver who kept improving throughout the season, ending the year as one of the most interesting prospects of Formula 4.
“Obviously, the step to Formula Regional will be a challenging one, as for every rookie, and we will work as much as we can to be competitive. We are confident that the performance will be there from the outset and we expect an exciting season.”
