About Formula 4

When a young driver earns his laurels in karting and contemplates the possibility to climb all the way to the highest ranks of the sport, a question arises: before fulfilling his dream, what comes next on the ladder? Launched in 2014, the FIA Formula 4 has been created to offer drivers around the world the opportunity to take the first step from karting into the world of single-seater racing.

Designed to be a globally recognised and affordable step between karting and F3, F4 allows drivers to compare themselves to the best young talent, not only in their own country, but across other championships worldwide. The F4 car has been designed to keep costs down while providing an ideal learning tool for young drivers who have never raced cars before.

Once of the most disputed national F4 series is the ADAC German series in which VAR is engaged and where it has been lately successful earning the 2016 series driverís championship.

The Formula 4 Calendar

Van Amersfoort Racing enters several cars in the ADAC Formula 4 championship, seen as the strongest and most challenging national series of this FIA program. It holds eight (8) events on six different European race course, between April and September. The circuits are located in Austria and Germany and have all earned a reputation of being very challenging for both drivers and cars. To demonstrate how challenging are most of the tracks, they are either hosting a Formula 1, DTM or FIM at other moment of the season.

Each of the eight (8) three-day weekend programs includes free and qualifying sessions on Friday and three races on Saturday or Sunday for a total of twenty-one (21) races over the course of the year. Included as part of each driver seasonís program, there is intensive testing sessions prior and during the course of the season.
