FIA F4 World Cup concept welcomed by MSA Formula officials
Plans for a world final for FIA Formula 4 cars have been welcomed by the organiser of the MSA Formula series.
The idea was confirmed at a meeting of the World Motor Sport Council earlier this month and it was decided that the FIA would be launching a call for expressions of interest from parties that would like to promote or organise such the event.
In a statement, the FIA said: “Following the global success of the introduction of FIA Formula 4, the World Motor Sport Council recognised the considerable interest in staging a World Final for national-level F4 championships where successful drivers from the 12 national F4 championships around the world would meet.”
MSA Formula is one of the championships that could provide drivers for such an event.
“It’s a great idea,” said championship manager Sam Roach. “I’ve said for ages this could be something very big and very healthy for F4. We will be supporting the idea fully.”
The idea of British Formula 3 returning in the form of BRDC F4 was also discussed at the meeting. This could pave the way for MSA Formula to be rebranded British F4 but Roach downplayed such a move.
