Concluding events in the ADAC F4 Championship powered by Abarth and Abarth Michelin Historic Rally Cup


  • The season-ending competition for the Abarth-powered single-seater racers is on the Hockenheim circuit, with a final rush for 3 very young drivers
  • The Elba Rally is the concluding race of the Abarth Michelin Historic Rally Cup, with 2 Fiat 124 Abarth Rally cars fighting it out in the 2nd division


Thrills and suspense this weekend, in the final events in two championships involving Abarth in centre stage. The Hockenheim circuit in Germany is the venue for the last and decisive race in the ADAC F4 Championship powered by Abarth, expected to be fiercely contested and decisive for the title: only a point and a half separates the head-of-the-table driver, New Zealander Marcus Armstrong, and Estonian Juri Vips, after 18 highly spectacular races, in which about forty young drivers competed at the wheel of the Tatuus cars with Abarth engines. Brazilian Felipe Drogovic, 20 lengths behind, may also be in with a chance of the title. The three races will at place on Saturday at 11.10 am and 2.45 pm, and on Sunday at 11.30 am.

The final, championship-deciding event has also come around for the Abarth Michelin Historic Rally Cup, which this week will see the historic Abarth cars competing in the Elba Rally, one of the most prestigious dates in the international calendar. Luca Delle Coste, partnered by Franca Regis Milano in the Fiat Ritmo 75, has already made mathematically certain of victory in Class 3, while the battle to win Class 2 involves the Fiat 124 Abarth Rally cars of Cesare Bianco, with Stefano Casazza, and Bruno Graglia, with Roberto Barbero.


The route, entirely on the twisting roads of the Napoleonic island, is demanding and very beautiful. It comprises two stages and 10 special tests, with a total of 134 km of timed speed sections.
