The French Formula 4 championship will race in Italy for the third time in the series’ history as it adds Misano to its calendar for 2023.

The FFSA Management Committee met on November 23 to determine next year’s calendars for the national championships of France, and decided on a similar seven-round schedule to this season for F4.

Nogaro holds the season opener for the seventh year in a row on April 7-9, with Magny-Cours moving forward in the schedule to be round two on May 5-7.

Following that is the street races in Pau a week later, which provisionally makes French F4 the only single-seater series on the Pau Grand Prix bill but Formula Scout understands Euroformula is working on racing there and being the host series of the grand prix race itself for the third time following 2019 and 2022.

Round four of the F4 season is at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium on June 2-4, then the first ever visit to Misano takes place on July 15/16.

French F4 raced at Monza in 2017 and ’21, with the first trip being the only time as a national series that it has ever had three rounds held outside of France. It did not race in Italy in it previous iterations as a French and then European series for Formula Renault 1.6 cars.

Following Misano there is a big gap before racing returns on September 8-10 at Ledenon, with a break of another month before the season finale at Paul Ricard on October 6-8.
