Follow our progress during the 2012 season here:
The 2011 season saw an exciting step up for Paulio Racing.
Having won back to back championship titles in F4 Class C, we progressed up to race in Class A of the F4 Championship.
This upgrade sees us racing for outright honours in the top class and aiming to build on our success.
We will continue to race with our well known RF98 car, but this has undergone a conversion into Class A spec.
The main technical changes are a move towards US2000 type front & rear aero wings, rear diffuser/ floor, F3 size wheels/ tyres, and a sizeable engine power upgrade.
The F4 Championship has undergone a format change over winter to add depth & variety to the grid.
The Main Classes are now as follows:
Class A – Cars built within F4 regulations after 1st January 1995 (Using Ford Duratec, Zetec & Pinto, Renault and motorcycle engines), all Vauxhall Lotus and F3 derived cars.
Class B – Essentially as Class A, but built before 1st January 1995
Class C – Formula Ford Duratec & Zetec cars
Class D – Formula Ford 1600 Kent cars
Our 2011 F4 Championship season progressed as follows:
(Unfortunately, we had several lengthy component delays early in the year and missed the first 5 races.)
Despite our delayed start, we are pleased to have caught up & finished inside the top 10 in our first year of F4 Class A racing.
