FIA F4 World Cup con­cept wel­comed by MSA For­mula of­fi­cials

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
