14-04-10th ITALIAN F.4 CHAMPIONSHIP POWERED BY ABARTH - THE TATUUS SINGLESEATER IS READY FOR PRACTICE ON TRACK - 230 Kb
SHAKEDOWN TESTS WILL BE RUN IN VAIRANO ON 14TH APRIL, JUST BEFORE THE PRE-SEASON TESTS IN VALLELUNGA ON 2ND MAY.
The Tatuus F4 is ready to race.
The big day is coming: the F.4 season opener is near and the single seaters are ready in the Tatuus factory of Concorezzo (Monza Brianza, Italy). The promoter, Luca De Donno, visited the north Italian factory to see the last phases of the assembly of the cars, which are now ready for testing.
Now on track for the tests.
Gianfranco De Bellis and Artico Sandonà, together with the engineers of Autotecnica Motori and Magneti Marelli, showed the brand new car to Luca De Donno. The car has been skilfully manufactured and it is characterised by a design which makes the car an ideal vehicle to train the new generations of drivers. The chassis is in carbon fibre and it is powered by an Abarth 414-F4 engine. The turbo-charged 1400 cc engine produces 160 Hp at 5500 rpm, fuelled by Panta fuels. The power unit will mount a Sadev sequential gearbox, with a Magneti Marelli motor unit of the push/pull type, controlled by an electronic control unit which drivers will be able to operate thanks to the levers on their steering wheels. All the parts are assembled, the engine started for the first time: the new car is officially completed and it is now ready to race on track for its first tests.
The first laps on 14th April on the Circuit of Vairano.
Next Monday, it will be already time for the first tests on track. The Vairano circuit (Pavia, Italy) will host the first session. Raffaele Giammaria, Director of the ACI-Csai Federal School, is ready to give Tatuus technicians the first data to find the ideal setting of the Pirelli tyres and of the chassis.
Teams and drivers ready for the pre-season tests in Vallelunga.
The first appointment, after the first laps in Vairano, is on schedule next 2nd May, in Vallelunga for the first session of the pre-season tests. The longed for season opener is approaching fast: the first round is next 8th June on the north Italian circuit of Adria.
