Ariel Elkin (ISR), 16 years old, from Haifa, Israel, drove successfully in karts for many years. After tests this year in Spa, Misano and Imola in the Formula car, he now decided to take the step with Jenzer Motorsport and to start in the FIA F4 Italian Championship. Ariel's karting career began in Israel's 4-stroke karting championship. He also drove successfully in the Russian Kart Championship in the Mini category. Since 2018 he has been champion in the Israel Kart Championship for several consecutive years, and has also recorded international successes in the Italian ACI Kart Championship, the CIK FIA Academy Trophy and the ROK Cup World Championship. In 2020, Ariel was awarded as “excellent sportsman” by the Israel Automobile & Karting Association. In 2021 he won the IAME Italian and Belgian Series. In 2022 he won the IAME Italian Series, won the bronze medal for Israel at the Motorsport Olympic Games in the SR category, and achieved 3rd place at the SuperKarts!USA Super-Nationals race in Las Vegas, USA. In 2023, Ariel has now decided to switch to formula racing. The FIA F4 Italian Championship begins next week with the first race weekend on the challenging characterful track in Imola.

Ariel Elkin: «Driving in Formula 4 is a dream coming true which I had been working for many years, and I am very excited to drive this season with Jenzer Motorsport in the Italian F4 Championship and looking forward to the challenge!»

Zitat Andreas Jenzer:
«Ariel can draw on comparatively few mileage in a formula racing car. However, he is a very determined and strong-willed young racer and will give anything to compete in the most demanding of all FIA F4 Championships, the FIA F4 Italian Championship. We will support him with all our experience and are excited to see what he can achieve.»
