Towards the end of the 2023 F4 Spain Championship season, Campos Racing is ready to tackle its home round this weekend. The F4-based racing series will pay its annual visit to Circuit Ricardo Tormo, which is close to Campos Racing facilities, and it will bring extra motivation for the whole team. The Valencia-based racing team will enter its six-car army consisting of Enzo Deligny, Christian Ho, Matteo De Palo, Noah Strømsted, Andrés Cárdenas and Jesse Carrasquedo Jr.

Rookie driver Deligny is definitively one of the eye-catchers throughout the season. The Red Bull driver sits second on 181 points and is the best rookie driver classified. The Frenchman clinched his maiden win in the series at Motorland Aragón and retook the winning form in Estoril two weeks ago. Besides, he secured seven other podium finishes in his Campos Racing-run Tatuus. Singaporean Ho is also playing a major role in the series with one win and six rostrums to his name to date. Ho is third overall on 167 points.

Italian De Palo and Danish Strømsted are currently lying in sixth and seventh place in the drivers’ standings. De Palo, who is also a rookie, scored his maiden win at Spa-Francorchamps and has scored points in all but two races, an impressive achievement for the young ace. Strømsted had stepped onto the podium three times with a second place in Navarra as his season’s high. Peruvian Cárdenas has also left his mark in the series. Cárdenas joined the winners’ circle in Jerez, where he also finished second in another race, and claimed two top-5 finishes in Portugal recently. Mexican Carrasquedo Jr. will be also pushing to translate his recent competitiveness in qualifying into results.

Campos Racing is second in the teams’ standings on 333 points, 15 behind the current leader.

Cheste is one of the trickiest circuits on the calendar due to its narrow nature, almost a “big” karting circuit. With corners in quick succession, drivers have no time to rest during a single lap. Besides, all the races are normally closely-fought with cars running nose-to-tail for the entire race. Last but not least, Campos Racing won the three races in Cheste last year.

The timetable has scheduled two 40-minute free practice sessions on Saturday morning with Q1 taking place at 13:45. Race 1, consisting of 30 minutes + 1 lap, is scheduled at 16:00. On Sunday, drivers will hit the track at 09:00 for Q2 with the remaining two races at 11:30 (25 minutes + 1 lap) and 15:40 (30 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 looking forward to contesting the penultimate round of the season, besides it is also our home round in Valencia. It adds even more motivation to fight for top results this weekend. We have scored wins with four different drivers so far and our goal is to add more triumphs and podiums to our tally in Cheste.”

Matteo De Palo (Campos Racing Driver of F4Spain): “This is the home race for my team Campos Racing! It’s going to be a special weekend and this will give me an extra boost.”
