The 100th Formula 4 FIA Mygale car has been celebrated on the circuit of Nevers-Magny-Cours during a cocktail party which gathered more than one hundred people including the press and financial partners of the project: Departmental Council, Prefecture, Regional Council, Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and technical partners with the Pole’s companies but also suppliers and local territory representatives.
Flashback on an ambitious project launched two years ago.
The F4 concept was born thanks to Jean Todt and the FIA, with the aim to facilitate the access to Formula 1 for young drivers.
This great opportunity has brought together several companies from the Pôle de la Performance de Nevers- Magny-Cours around a collaborative project coordinated by Mygale: ACE, Danielson Engineering, Isat/Welience, Ligier, Oreca, Sodemo et Texys, which was how the first Formula 4 emerged in June 2013.
After the technical development phase, Mygale succeeded in winning prestigious markets for the Chinese, Australian, British, Spanish and Mexican Championships and some sales to Trinidad, Tobago and Guyana.
Many months of work helped to deliver on time the earliest single seater cars from November 2014 for future 2015 Championships. The first one to begin was the British 2015 MSA Formula Championship last April at the Brands Hatch circuit.
The next Championship will be held on July 10 in Townsville for the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship.
