Marco Kacic, the winner of the West Coast-based Formula Pro USA Formula 4 title last year, will make his Formula Regional Americas debut with HMD Motorsports next weekend.
The Canadian competed on the North American karting scene until 2018, when he stepped up to single-seaters in Canada’s Formula 1600 series – the Honda-powered equivalent of the wingless Formula Ford 1600 category.
He claimed pole on his debut in the Ontario-based Toyo Tires F1600 series and finished 13th in the points, and was 10th in the accompanying Super Series. Last year he moved into slicks-and-wings, and dominated the USA’s regional F4 series.
“I am excited to join HMD Motorsports for the final event of 2020,” said the 17-year-old upon announcing he will be making his Regional F3 debut at Circuit of the Americas.
“To watch their success this season with David Malukas, Logan Cusson and Kyffin Simpson, I am ecstatic to be part of HMD. A huge thank you to everyone who has helped me get here.”
Kacic also contested one round of the United States’ F1600 Championship Series in 2018, and took two top-five finishes.
In his FPro USA campaign he won seven of the 10 races he entered to claim the title, and he was also a winner in the championship’s winter series.
Since then he has been testing privately with HMD, having not been able to secure a full-time racing programme for 2020.
This year’s FPro USA F4 champion is expected to race in US F4 in 2021, as they will recieve a free engine lease for use in the series as a title prize.
