Campos Racing is ready to kick off the second half of the 2022 F4 Spain Championship season at Motorland Aragón this weekend. After the summer break, the F4-based formula resumes for the fifth round of the season in the famous motorsport town in Northern Spain. Campos Racing will run its five-car Tatuus armada of young aces Nikola Tsolov, Hugh Barter, Georg Kelstrup, Filip Jenić and Manuel Espírito Santo. The Spanish-based is completing a sensational season in dominating fashion with 10 wins and 19 podiums to its credit by the halfway point of the season. 

Tsolov is currently on top of the drivers’ championship on 236 points. The popularly known as “Bulgarian Lion” has scored nine wins on his F4 debut, eight of them consecutively at Jerez, Cheste and Spa-Francorchamps. Japanese-Australian Barter is another race winner this season, as he stepped up onto the top place of the rostrum in Algarve, which hosted the season opener. Besides, Barter achieved a triple second-place finish in the Ardennes before the summer break to strengthen his second place in the standings.  

Danish Kelstrup is one of the most solid points-paying positions finisher. Kelstrup is currently fourth in the standings with a second place in Jerez as his season’s best. He also finished in the top 5 other six times. Serbian Jenić and Portuguese Espírito Santo are 8th and 10th respectively in the standings. They both have second places to their names this season and will be strong contenders for the podium at Motorland Aragón once again.

In the same way, Campos Racing is currently leading the teams’ standings on 373 points.  

Motorland Aragón is an ultrafast circuit with two long straights, particularly the back straight. Its asphalt is quite aggressive on the tires due to its roughness. For drivers leading the field, Alcañiz is always a tricky circuit due to slipstreams perfectly working for overtaking maneuvers. This said, it makes qualifying position less crucial as there are chances to move through the field with a good race pace.  

The timetable has scheduled two 40-minute long free practice sessions on Saturday morning with Q1 taking place at 15.40. Race 1, consisting of 25 minutes + 1 lap, is scheduled at 18.00. On Sunday, drivers will hit the track at 09.00 for Q2 with the remaining two races at 11.30 (18 minutes + 1 lap) and 15.15 (25 minutes + 1 lap). All times are CET. Racing action will be broadcasted live on F4 Spain channel on YouTube

Adrián Campos (Campos Racing Team Principal): “We are already back after the summer break and we are delighted to contest another F4 round. We hope to keep fighting for top honors and scoring a strong haul of points on a regular basis, just like we did in the first part of the season. We have put a lot of effort and work for Motorland and our goal is to convert it into results.”

Nikola Tsolov (Campos Racing Driver of F4 Spain): “I’m looking forward for this weekend after the summer break. Me and the team have been preparing the last few weeks and we are ready to go and grab solid points for the championship.”
