Garcia announces part-time campaign
Belén García has announced a part-time campaign in 2021 Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine with team G4 Racing. The 21-year-old Spanish racer – who will contest the entire W Series Championship this year – in 2019 won the Formula 4 Spanish Championship Female Trophy and became the first woman to win an FIA F4 race.
García will make her series’ debut at the collective tests on here home venue at Barcelona and at Circuit Paul Ricard. She will then enter the two opening rounds of the series, including round 2, taking place at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya alongside the Formula 1 Spanish GP. As things stand at the moment, she won’t be able to complete the season due to her clashing commitments in the W Series.
“It is a pleasure to announce that I will join G4 Racing for the first rounds of the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine“, Belén said. “I am confident that this will be the best preparation for the W Series, and I will make the most of it”.
I am delighted to confirm Belén García as a driver for our new Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine team”, Sporting and Technical Manager Adrian Muñoz commented. “Unfortunately, due to her full-time commitment to W Series, she will be with us only on a part-time basis. I have known Belén since she started with single-seaters in Formula 4. I am convinced that she will show the same talent and professionalism and adapt quickly to the car and team”.
