1 Mins read

A new era of racing is set to start this year, with the launch of the ADAC Formula 4 series. Billed as the German based version of F4’s new stepping stone into racing, the field has reached maximum capacity by managing to get 42 drivers on track in their first season.

Despite being a German based series, it will feature races at the Red Bull Ring in Austria and Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. This is coupled with the news that their will be teams from 6 different countries entering the fray, proving that this is well respected championship.

“Interest in the ADAC Formula 4 remains overwhelming,” said ADAC Sports President Hermann Tomczyk. “We have worked successfully with young talent for over two decades now, and I am sure that ADAC Formula 4 will produce even more future Formula 1 drivers.

“We are very proud that Formula 1 stars such as Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg, Nico Hülkenberg and Ralf Schumacher earned their spurs in the various ADAC junior formula series.”

Drivers with existing experience will be coupled alongside promising stars of karting, including the highly anticipated Mick Schumacher and Harrison Newey. To add to the list of drivers are three rising female stars of Michelle Halder, Marylin Niederhauser and Carrie Schreiner. With the increased presence of females in the Formula One community, out of one of them, could we see F1’s next female star.

The first season of ADAC Formula 4 starts on the weekend of the 24-26 April at the etropolis Motorsport Arena Oschersleben. The series will support the ADAC GT Masters for all race weekends except the second weekend at Oschersleben which will support the DTM Series.
