The Easter Cup at Nogaro inaugurates the 2018 French F4 Championship
27 March 2018
Like last year, the French F4 Championship will start at the traditional Easter Cup at the magnificent Paul Armagnac circuit of Nogaro. The FFSA Academy has prepared for the new season in great detail, and it will take place using the Mygale F4 single-seaters meeting FIA standards, equipped with a carbon hull and a Renault Sport 2-litre engine with 160 horsepower.
20 drivers of seven
different nationalities will compete to follow the footsteps of many
champions, like Pierre Gasly, who competed in the 2011 French F4
Championship and a current F1 driver. The quality of the field
already anticipates close duels for the podium. All had the
opportunity to refine their physical, mental and sporting preparation
at the training centre of the French Federation of Motor Sport. Some
repeaters will battle against young drivers, mainly from karting. A
busy schedule awaits the academicians with Free Practice and
Qualifying, followed by three races spread out on Sunday 1st and
Monday 2nd April.
After Nogaro, the
French F4 Championship will visit some of the most beautiful European
circuits: Pau City, Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, Dijon, Magny-Cours,
Jerez in Spain and Paul Ricard-Le Castellet. At the end of the
season, the winner will join the Renault Sport Academy and will
receive a prize of €100,000 before tax to facilitate access to a
higher level formula in 2019.
