- Australian karting star makes single seater switch with Argenti Motorsport
- Ferrari Driver Academy shootout finalist set to tackle Britain’s FIA Formula 4 series in 2021.
- Driver and team both excited as Argenti target further headlines in second season of competition.
Argenti Motorsport have officially confirmed Australian rising star Marcos Flack will join their line-up for the 2021 F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost season.
Flack makes his graduation into single seaters in Britain’s FIA Formula 4 series on the back of a successful career in karting at domestic and international level, and recently reached the world final of Ferrari Driver Academy’s scouting programme.
The 14-year-old also impressed on selected testing outings for Argenti – multiple race-winners and podium regulars after just one season on the grid at this level – towards the end of the 2020 campaign.
Flack’s experience means he will also be eligible to compete for Rookie Cup honours and will undoubtedly prove to be an asset as Argenti target a Teams’ Championship.
Choosing British F4 for a full-season campaign means Flack’s career will now benefit from the series’ slot on the high-profile British Touring Car Championship support package.
That means live, free-to-air television coverage via ITV4 and capacity trackside crowds when COVID-19 restrictions allow, as well as putting Flack in the spotlight on the series’ well- publicised digital channels to aid his rise through the ranks.
“I’m really excited to confirm I’ll be racing for Argenti Motorsport in the F4 British Championship this season,” said Flack.
“Testing with the team has been really positive; I’ve enjoyed driving the car and starting to learn some of the UK circuits.
“It’s an excellent championship, and the perfect place for me to make the step up into single seaters. It’s important to make a mark at this level, like many of the previous drivers have done, so I’ll be aiming to do the same.
“I can’t wait to get going, and I’m very excited about what the season ahead will bring.”
Team Principal Michael Meadows echoed Flack’s sentiments and is looking forward to a strong start to their partnership.
“It’s great to have Marcos unveiled as an Argenti Motorsport driver for 2021,” said Meadows.
“There’s no doubt he’s a serious talent, his performances in testing last year were very impressive, he’s clearly got a bright future ahead of him and we’re excited to play a role in his development.
“Our first season in British F4 was good – we won races, took podium finishes at every meeting bar one and had all three cars regularly mixing it in the top ten.
“There is always more to be done, we are pushing to make the small gains, and I’m confident Marcos will prove an asset to the team as we continue that push forward.”
The 2021 season will get underway at Brands Hatch’s Indy circuit on 03-04 April.
