11 in 11 - Netrex Grand Prix Season preview
In todays 11 in 11 article we take a look at Netrex Grand Prix, one of the oldest and most established teams in the field, and how they are shaping up heading into the 2016 Formula SimRacing season.
2015 will be remembered as a disapointment for Netrex, the expectations at the seasons start with Morgan Morand and Carlos Martin at the helm were huge. However, injuries to Carlos and Morgan deciding to retire, Netrex limped home to only 8th place in the constructors championship.
For 2016 though, Netrex are looking to bounce back, and have 2 huge names in their driver strength for 2016. David Greco, forever a fixture in Formula SimRacing, and Michele D'Alessandro. Netrex head into the season quietly confident, that they can put the misery of last season behind them, and once again challenge for top honors.
Once again Netrex have had one of Formula SimRacings most impressive launches, the NX18IJ is as always eye catching. However, team boss Ernesto De Angelis will hope the team performs just as good as it looks.

|OTHER FSR ACHIEVEMENTS||Multiple as Team Owner|
|BEST WC POSITION||T19 (2015)|
|OTHER FSR ACHIEVEMENTS||10th in PRO (2015)|
Here are a few quotes from the 2 Netrex drivers ahead of the 2016 season.
"My first aim, is to enjoy my racing and enjoy driving. I know on paper I'm a very fast driver, but to win a championship it takes a superb training regime, and superlative team work. I don't have much time for neither of things but I will always give my best and I hope I can challenge for some wins this year! I really like this years mod, I think it's a good representation of how a modern F1 car is to drive, I believe it will be a nice challenge to be able to setup the car very well. The teams that have the best organization could have some advantage. The style, I think, will need to be aggresive but also smooth, and the drivers will need to be very precise with the front end."
"I’m really proud to be in a team with such an important and long tradition, like netrex, where drivers like morand and huttu have raced. the question about the big consideration the team has in me should be asked to the team owners who wanted me here, likely it comes from some good performances i had last year in fsr both in wc and ace divisions, that together with showing, in current srz rf1 season, that i can also be reliable and consistent during a whole season, getting rid, almost completely, of mistakes during the races."
