About us

Formula 4 was launched in 2014 with the aim of being the first step towards the path to Formula 1. It is the ideal category for young drivers coming from karting to develop a professional career in the single-seater series.

Our history began in 2016 and, from humble beginnings, the support of all the stakeholders involved has allowed the championship to become a reference at European and world level.

Our car

The championship counts on Tatuus as our vehicle supplier, with the novelty that from the 2022 season onwards, the second generation of the single-seater, christened Tatuus F4 T-021, will be available.

Among its new safety features are the introduction of the Halo and new improvements to the structure of the monocoque and the driver’s seat. It will also feature an improved braking system, a lighter gear box and a new steering wheel.

All this, together with renewed Marelli data acquisition and software, as well as the hitherto unused energy storage space, will make the T-021 suitable for hybridisation of its 1.4L engine prepared by Abarth and Autotecnica.
