Noah Stromsted will return to Race Performance Motorsport’s Formula Regional European Championship line-up at Hockenheim this weekend, and remain with the team for the full 2024 season.

The 16-year-old Dane made his FREC debut with the team at Monza last month, retiring in his first race and then starting and finishing sixth in the second.

“I am very happy to be joining R-P-M for the season finale at Hockenheim, and even happier that I will race with the team in FREC next year,” said Stromsted.

“After the great Monza race weekend we had together and seeing the potential the team has, it was clear to me that here is where I want to be and fight for the 2024 title with R-P-M.

“Hockenheim is a great opportunity for me to keep learning about the championship and it’ll also be a new track for me, it’s the perfect way to start working towards 2024. I would like to thank my sponsors, family, management and Escuderia Telmex for this opportunity.”

R-P-M team owner Keith Donegan believes based off Stromsted’s Monza performances that “it is clear he has great potential to fight for the title next year”.

Stromsted has been racing in Formula 4 since 2021, taking nine wins and coming second in the Danish championship (despite missing a third of the season due to being underage) as a rookie, and then had to wait until he turned 15 in the second half of 2022 to race in other championships.

He did two Spanish F4 rounds and claimed a pole position and two fifth places, then this year took one podium in F4 United Arab Emirates and is currently seventh in Spanish F4 with three podiums to his name.
