The Aragonese tarmac will host the fourth round of the championship just two weeks after the Grand Prix held in Portimao. Dilano Van’t Hoff and MP Motorsoprt are leaders in the drivers’ and teams’ championships respectively.
Fourteen days after Sebastian Ogaard’s double in Portugal, the engines will roar again in Motorland; fourth round of the Spanish Formula 4 championship and where the halfway point of the season will be reached.
Its 5.344 kilometres and 18 corners will be a new challenge for the drivers who will make up the starting grid on Saturday 31 July and Sunday 1 August. The track, located in the town of Alcañiz, has been awarded the 1T category by the FIA, allowing competitions such as Formula 3, the World Series by Renault or Formula 1 to race on its asphalt.
Dilano Van’t Hoff – after taking the podium in all three races in the Algarve, and winning the last one – has extended the gap to 83 points over his closest challenger Sebastian Ogaard. The Campos Racing driver’s two victories at Portimao allowed the Dane to climb up to second in the championship, ahead of Daniel Maciá. The Spanish Formula of Champions driver took advantage of his two second place finishes at Portimao to move up to third, 88 points behind the championship leader.
In the team standings, MP Motorsport is still in the lead. The Dutch squad, which has won five of the nine possible victories so far, is 103 points ahead of the second-placed team, Spain’s Formula of Champions. The Valencian team, which managed to defend its second position in the third round of the championship, is more than 100 points behind the Dutch team and only 26 points ahead of third placed Campos Racing.
Unlike what happened in Portugal, where the action was concentrated on Friday and Saturday, this weekend the cars will run the first feature race on Saturday at 19:20, with the short race and the second feature race on Sunday at 13:05 and 17.25 respectively.
All the races taking place this weekend at Motorland can be followed on our Youtube channel, with commentary in English and Spanish, and on our Twitch channel in Spanish.
