Upon concluding its largely successful racing season in 2019, Abarth has presented its plans in 2020 for rallying and Formula Four.

29 Dec 2019 | International News : Italy

Abarth's hugely successful 2019 racing season has concluded. Next year will see Abarth compete in rallies with the Abarth 124 rally, and will feature on racetracks in Italy and Germany in Formula Four, a championship whose single-seater cars are all fitted with Abarth T-Jet engines.

The Abarth 124 rally has had a successful racing career, with almost 100 wins in 16 different championships
In the last three seasons, the Abarth 124 rally has established itself as the car to beat in the R-GT category, due to almost 100 wins in 16 different national championships. Now, for the second year running, it will race in the European Rally Championship (ERC).

The drivers in the ERC can also continue to compete in the Abarth Rally Cup, the single-brand championship exclusively for drivers of Abarth 124 rally models in the ERC, involving six prestigious rallies scheduled in the FIA-ERC 2020 calendar.

Abarth's commitment to the Formula Four event continues, with the seventh edition of the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth and the sixth edition of the ADAC F4 Championship powered by Abarth.

Over time, the concept of using the Abarth T-Jet engine to power single-seater models has proved ideal in accompanying promising young F4 drivers towards professional levels.

Over the years, it has enabled roughly 300 youthful drivers to compete at high levels on some of Europe's finest and most challenging circuits, on the first steps of a career, which in many cases has continued - with the Canadian Lance Stroll now in F1, with seven drivers in F2, and 12 in F3.
