After an initial rookie campaign that saw her pick up just 25 points and nineteenth in the overall standings, Sophia Flörsch will return to the ADAC Formula 4 Championship. For 2017 she will join the BWT Mucke Motorsport team as she looks for a more successful season.

The 16-year-old German, made her series debut last year, scoring a personal best fifth in the opening weekend, though failed to improve on that result. She eventually finished behind her team-mates, Simo Laaksonen and Jonathan Aberdein – who has been resigned by Motopark this year – landing just nineteenth in the standings.

Prior to this Flörsch had competed in the UK, racing in the Ginetta Junior Championship where she picked up two wins and two further podiums, before being forced to pull out due to financial issues.

Translated from German, Flörsch said; “The team around Peter Mücke convinced me with his perseverance and professionalism. I feel great there and look forward to a fast, horny and hopefully very successful season. I will do my best and fight to the last.”

Team boss Peter Mücke talked about the teams new entry; “Sophia has bite, fighting spirit and is ambitious. We want to accompany them not only on the route, but also to provide them with a sound education, which they form for higher classes.”

She becomes Mucke’s first driver signing of the season and will look to lead the team to great success after they picked up three wins at the hands of third place driver Mike David Ortmann, on their way to third in the teams standings last year.
