The newest addition to the North American junior formula landscape, the SCCA Pro Racing Formula 4 United States Championship powered by Honda, will hold its inaugural weekend at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course this weekend running three races over three days of track activity. The F4 US Championship feeds into the SCCA Pro Racing Pirelli Formula Lites Championship Series which starts it’s 2016 season in August after a delay surrounding the new Honda powerplant for the series.
“We are proud to debut the F4 series in the United States and create the stepping stone for young drivers to achieve their full potential as they move up the motorsports ladder. The F4 U.S. Championship is the only established FIA championship series in the United States and will offer young drivers exciting opportunities moving forward.” — Derrick Walker, president and CEO of SCCA Pro Racing
If you’re a frequent reader of FBC, and listener of The Cambered Corner, you’ve already heard our own Paul Charsley discuss the new series, and our interview with Team Principal of Group-A Racing, Jonathan Scarallo. Group-A’s Raphael Forcier, who introduced himself to us here, will be racing this weekend and will be giving us a from-the-cockpit report on the weekend’s adventure.

Is this being broadcast over TV anywhere?
Apparently so, but not live and on whatever on earth Altitude Sports and NESN are – http://www.f4uschampionship.com/articles/2001822-f4-u-s-championship-enters-millions-of-households-across-america
It would of been wise for them to have followed the ADAC F4 (German F4 series) lead and have live streaming, even if it was incredibly basic.
