There will be 2 international top-level events, Belgium and Portugal, and 5 national events together with Racing Wekeend
For the first time, the Spanish Formula 4 will visit Spa-Francorchamps, an iconic circuit in the world of motorsport due to its length and surroundings. A total of 7km of track through the dense Ardennes forest, making it a magical place full of good memories for motorsport fans. During the whole weekend the track will be shared with Creventic, organizer of the 24H Series championship.
Furthermore, the F4 Spain will return to Portugal after a 1 year absence due to the current pandemic, although the date and circuit are yet to be confirmed. There are two possibilities; competing at Vila Real International Circuit, being the first time that the Spanish F4 Championship would compete on an urban track, and it would be together with one of the greatest World Championships, the WTCR. The other option for competing in Portugal is in Portimao, at the Circuito Internacional do Algarve, which this year has already witnessed the world’s biggest single-seater show, Formula 1.
The seven races of the 2021 season will take place in a seven-month interval, from April to November.
The Jarama Circuit is the circuit chosen to open the calendar. It will be in April, on the 10th and 11th. Two weeks later the championship will move to Belgium, to compete on the mythical Circuit of Spa Francorchamps on the 24th and 25th of April.
The next event is scheduled for July 31st and August 1st at MotorLand Aragon, the newest circuit in the championship, but also one of the most important due to the fact that it hosts the Motorcycle World Championship every year.
After Aragon, it will be the turn of the Ricardo Tormo Circuit, in Valencia, on the 18th and 19th of September. At this point the competition will be beyond the halfway point, reaching the most exciting moments and where the candidates for the title begin to be seen.
Two weeks later it will be the turn of the Circuito de Jerez – Angel Nieto, where last season hosted great battles that marked a turning point in the championship. This time the competition will take place on the 2nd and 3rd of October.
Finally, the championship will conclude in Barcelona, as usual, on 13 and 14 November. The final stretch, the Barcelona – Catalunya Circuit, one of the most prestigious international circuits and where great races are usually held.
The only circuit still to be confirmed is the Portuguese one, which will probably be held in June or July and will mean the return of the competition to the neighbouring country.
To conclude, Álvaro Martínez de Tejada, director of the F4 Spanish Championship, has commented his feelings about the upcoming season, which he already suggests will be the most spectacular one to date, placing the championship among the top ones in the world:
“We are very excited to be able to present such a complete and exciting calendar for 2021. It represents a great step forward for the championship, in line with the growth we have been experiencing for the last 2 years, and we hope that 2021 will be the best season of the Spanish Formula 4 Championship to date. I am sure that with the arrival of new teams, more and more young talent and such a high level calendar we will have the perfect ingredients to achieve it.”
