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.
One of the most disputed national F4 series is the ADAC German series in which VAR is engaged and where it has been very successful. Since 2019, VAR competes also in the highly competitive Italian F4 Championship for the full season.
