Rotax Junior pilot Raphael Forcier has confirmed his plans to step up from karts and into cars, choosing to race in the new US based Formula 4 Championship this year.
Forcier, from Montreal, Quebec spent a good portion of his winter in the Skip Barber Winter Series, earning races wins and recognition.
He will race in F4 with Group A Racing, guided by team boss Jonathan Scarallo and engineer Ian Brown.
Forcier raced in 2015 with SH Racing in Rotax Junior with mixed results after only one previous year of racing. When asked if he will still race karts in 2016, Forcier is uncertain but mentioned he may jump into a Briggs & Stratton kart if the opportunity arises.
We wish him good luck.
