Christian Ho Clinches First Win In 2023 Formula Four Spanish Championship
The driver also managed this victory on top of juggling his GCSEs as well
A year after making the step up to Formula Four racing, Singaporean driver Christian Ho earned his big break on 28 May, clinching his first F4 win in the 2023 F4 Spanish Championship at the MotorLand Aragon circuit in Spain.
Ho claimed the chequered flag in 28min 13.728sec, 2.757sec ahead of Deligny. Theophile Nael of Sainteloc Racing completed the podium. Ho’s victory follows a string of spectacular results this season and cements his status as a rising star in motor racing in only his second season in F4 racing.
A Full Time Job, Or Two
Christian Ho, 16, said “This last race week has been a good step in the right direction as I got my first win in single seaters (Formula Four), which was quite exciting. When I crossed the finish line, all I could think of was how happy I was and I’m glad that all my hard work is paying off. I am in the midst of taking my GCSE exams so I’m studying hard too, but I’ve been able to balance racing and my studies quite well.”
The 2023 Formula Four Spanish Championship has seven rounds of three races across each weekend. The season started on 5 May at the iconic Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium, before moving to Aragon, where Ho started the first two races on pole.
On top of that, in the Spanish Formula Four, Races 1 and 3 of each weekend last 30 minutes + 1 lap, while Race 2 is set for 25 minutes + 1 lap.
The next round will take place on 24 to 25 June at the circuit of Navarra in Spain, followed by Jerez, another circuit in Spain, in September. The series then moves to Portugal at the end of September before returning to Spain for the last two rounds in Valencia and Barcelona in October and November respectively.
The remaining Formula Four races on the calendar are the Circuito de Navarra, Spain from 24 to 25 June, the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto, Spain from 23 to 24 September , the Autodromo Fernanda Pires da Silva, Portugal from 30 September to 1 October and finally, the Circuit Ricardo Tormo, Spain from 14 to 15 October.
