IN Formula 3000 this season there are three members of the Sperafico Family: identical twins Ricardo and Rodrigo and their cousin Alex. But one should also not forget the progress being made by another cousin Rafael Sperafico who was the winner of the Barber-CART scholarship in 2000, was rookie of the year in Barber Dodge last year is currently leading the Barber Dodge series in the United States.
Rafael claimed his first win in Barber Dodge last weekend at Laguna Seca and is now second in the championship behind American A.J Allmendinger.
If current progress continues the notation "R Sperafico" could be very complicated in the years ahead with Ricardo, Rodrigo and Rafael all in the major categories.
