2021 marks the launch of the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine – certified by FIA and promoted by ACI Sport. An ambitious new project from ACI Sport and Alpine to form an official fourth rung of the Road to F1 ladder, perfectly positioning itself after the F4 and before the F3. Combining ACI Sport Formula Regional and Formula Renault Eurocup, the idea was to create a defined and unique entry point for young talents coming from the national F4 categories around the world, such as the first one to be born, the Italian F4, for a strongly participated, competitive and professional series – certified by FIA.
The new series in 2022 will not only be held as one support event to F1, but the calendar sees all 10 meetings racing on F1 tracks.
With cars designed to F3 safety standards, the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine is a great step forward from F4, and the natural FIA certified step from karting to F1.
