Sophia Flörsch and Van Amersfoort Racing at the start of the Championship

The line-up of the Formula Regional European Championship grows with Sophia Flörsch in team Van Amersfoort Racing

The 18-year-old German driver Sophia Flörsch will participate to the 2019 Formula Regional European Championship certified by FIA with Dutch team Van Amersfoort Racing.

Sophia is so back racing in a Championship organized by ACI Sport in collaboration with WSK Promotion, after her participation in 2017 to the Italian F4 Championship Powered by Abarth, where she managed to obtain a good number of results in the first 10 positions, including a very good fifth.

Sophia, who will challenge all the line-up in the general classification, adds to the “pink quota” of the Formula Regional European Championship, after the official participation of Sharon Scolari, of team ScoRace by Viola Formula.

“… joining the Formula Regional European Championship series will add a very respectable step for drivers on their way to the higher echelons of motorsport” says VAR founder Frits van Amersfoort.

Rob Niessink, CEO at Van Amersfoort Racing comments: “We see this Formula Regional European Championship as a great opportunity for young talented drivers in which there is much to learn”.
