Marcos Flack has praised Argenti Motorsport’s role in his driver development as the Australian sits on the eve of making his debut in the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost at Thruxton.
The 15-year-old joins Britain’s FIA Formula 4 series after graduating from karting with a solid CV, and will race at Michael Meadows’ outfit alongside Matias Zagazeta and Eduardo Coseteng.
Reflecting on winter testing, Flack believes he’s adapted well to single seaters and establish a solid foundation from which to build in the season ahead.
“So far it seems really good. I’m really gelling well with the car and its been great to work with the team so far. I’m really just finding my place and starting to push to get to where I need to be for the season opener and beyond,” he explained.
“It’s great having Matias in the team, he’s really fast. He’s really been helping me driving-wise, giving me some tips and helping me out with where I need to be and what I need to do.”
Flack studied footage and followed the championship from back home in Australia during 2020, and believes the potential for driver development, as well as an enjoyable roster of circuits, were keen motivating factors for him in making the switch.
“I saw the season last year and came over to do a few test days with Argenti and I saw the potential in the season and figured it was a great place to start learning.”
“The tracks are really nice over here, even though some of them are quite skinny and unforgiving. The circuits are really enjoyable to drive so I’m finding it quit easy to adapt to.”
Flack didn’t set any specific goals for the season ahead, instead preferring to focus on finding his feet and building from there.
“This is my debut year in car racing so right now I’m just learning what I need to do and what I need to improve on through the season!”
Thruxton’s high-speed, 2.3-mile circuit hosts the opening three rounds of the season this weekend (8-9 May), with Sunday’s double-header live on ITV4.
