F4 Spain and Koiranen announces inaugural 8 round calendar


Details for the upcoming F4 Spain series has recently been announced as the series boasts a seven race calendar concluding with a non-championship event at the end of October. No circuit has been announced for the one off event, as Koiranen GP will provide the Tatuus cars for the year.

As for the reward for the winners, the top three in the championship will receive tests in FIA European Formula 3 cars, with the overall winner collecting 50.000€. However, one round will have dropped scores, ensuring that race wins will be more important than consistency.

“With an entry fee of €15.000 per car, including 8 events, 6 official test days and additional services, we have been doing everything we could to keep an affordable price and welcome as many teams and drivers as possible.”  commented Koiranen’s PR officer; Alexandra Consani.

“The fact that we are using the same Tatuus/Abarth car as other FIA F4 series, is enabling foreign teams who are already entering other F4s, to maximize the use of their existing equipment. We can’t wait to start the season, and see how will be the audience response to this new fantastic event”

The championship will have the same points structure and similar weekend format to the rest of the Formula 4 series around the world, with two qualifying sessions affecting the grid for race one and three, while race two will be the classification of the last event.

The season will start at Navarra in May, with one flyaway event at Estoril, Portugal in July. The Super Licence points gained from the series will also prove to be more important next year as the FIA have extended their allocation of points from 3 years to five.
