2016 ADAC F4 Calendar to include Zandvoort

The calendar for the second season of the ADAC Formula 4 series has been announced, with significant changes for the following year. Most notably, the series will now visit the Netherlands with Zandvoort being included.

The new calendar sees it continue as the support series to ADAC GT Masters, with the season once again starting at Oschersleben, now on the 16th and 17th April. However; the circuit will not return to the calendar for a second race, like it did this season.

After the first round, ADAC F4 will land at the Sachsenring on the April 30th and May 1st, before heading off to the Lausitzring a week later, where it will also be a support event of the DTM series.

ADAC Director of Motorsport and Classic Motoring, Lars Soutschka adds: “After the huge success of ADAC Formula 4 in its debut season, we are very confident that we will be again offering the ideal platform for entry into professional motorsport in 2016. The environment of the ADAC GT Masters and DTM could not be more attractive for our talented newcomers.”

The fourth round will see it return to Austria, at the Red Bull Ring on July 23/24 after a short summer break. The Nurburgring round remains prominent at the start of August before yet another trip across Europe.

For many drivers the trip to Zandvoort on August 20/21 will be their first time driving around the circuit, allowing the field to show their true potential with no driver taking the reigns. However the trip to Zandvoort could create the opportunity for a cross over, as the Benelux Formula 4 series looks to be established next year.

Like this season, the year once again ends around the Hockenheim circuit, this time at the start of October, leaving a month gap between the final two rounds. One round is yet to be announced and will act as the independent weekend, away from the ADAC GT Masters.
