In exactly one month’s time, the ACCR Formula 4 Championship will start in its inaugural season fielding the new Tatuus F4 Gen2 car. Now company CEO Gianfranco De Bellis has called the series the key factor for talent development in the region
On June 3-5, the ACCR Formula 4 by ESET will open its season at the renowned Red Bull Ring, Austria’s Home of Formula One. It marks the debut of the new junior formula championship for Central and Eastern Europe, which is expecting to see a grid of 12 to 16 talented youngsters battling for points and wins in the new Tatuus F4 Gen2 car.
Tatuus Group CEO, Gianfranco De Bellis, believes that “the new ACCR F4 is the series that was needed to raise the interest in junior formula racing in Eastern Europe even further. We are seeing a greater number of drivers coming from there, but finally having their own dedicated championship is a great opportunity to form future talents.”
The stage is set for ACCR F4 to commence, the race calendar stands, the teams are on stand-by. However, the new cars have yet to be delivered. Due to the global crises, several Formula 4 series including ACCR F4 are waiting for the vehicles to arrive.
“The effect of pandemic and, sadly, the war in Ukraine, are still delaying and affecting the production of our cars, with a notable surge in prices of raw material, logistics and energy. Despite this, Tatuus is fully committed to keep the production active”, De Bellis explained.
Tatuus is a world leader in the design, production and sale of racing cars. The Italian company currently supplies numerous junior racing series with its cars, including the Likes of the W Series, the British F3 Championship, the Toyota Racing Series, the Pro Mazda Series, the Formula 4 Championships in Italy, Germany, Spain, the UK, UAE, Brazil, and many more.
