Dino Beganovic will return to Formula 3 with PREMA Racing, becoming the first driver announced for the 2024 campaign. The Swede made his F3 debut this year with the Italian team, finishing his maiden campaign in sixth in the Drivers’ Championship.
The partnership between Beganovic and PREMA is a longstanding one, with the 19-year-old having first raced for the team back in 2020 when he claimed P3 in Italian F4.
He continued with PREMA in 2020 and 2021, moving up to the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine, achieving a P13 finish before winning the series in ’21, taking four victories and a further 10 podiums along the way.
In 2023, the Ferrari Academy junior scored four podium finishes in F3 and a further six top 10 finishes. Beganovic said that he was pleased to be continuing with the team next year having achieved so much already in PREMA colours.
"I'm super happy to confirm that I'm staying for another year with my team, PREMA Racing, in Formula 3. It's very nice to stay with the team as it will be our fifth year together. I cannot wait to continue the work we have done together throughout the years, starting from Formula 4. Our targets are clear and have been set high, but they are achievable. We will continue to focus on the testing sessions to prepare as much as possible for the first race next year."
Team Manager René Rosin added that Beganovic’s experience in 2023 would make him even more competitive next season.
"We always enjoyed working with Dino. He is a quick and knowledgeable driver and works really well in our team’s environment. With the experience gained this year, he will make his challenge even more solid and by what we saw so far in testing, there is great promise for sure. We are very happy to continue the path we started together in 2020, and we look forward to seeing what the future will bring."
Beganovic was the fastest driver in the first post-season test at Jerez, finishing the second day with a 1:29.900. He also ended the Barcelona test on top, leading the afternoon session on Day 2.
