Germany, Israel and New Zealand join Motorsport Games F4 Cup

by Rob Hansford

Germany, Israel and New Zealand have announced their line-ups for the inaugural FIA Motorsport Games Formula 4 Cup.

F4 graduates and current Euroformula Open drivers Niklas Krutten and Ido Cohen will represent Germany and Israel respectively, while Formula Vee racer Flynn Mullany has been chosen to drive for New Zealand.

After a season-and-a-half in ADAC and Italian F4, 16-year-old Krutten left the category earlier this year to replace Julian Hanses in Motopark’s EF Open line-up. In his first four races in the championship, he has taken two eighth place finishes.

Cohen finished seventh on his EF Open debut for Carlin last weekend at Barcelona, and the 18-year-old is continuing his dual F4 campaigns in Europe. He’s currently 13th in the ADAC standings and fifth in the Italian, both with Van Amersfoort Racing which Krutten also drove for.

Mullany has spent the last two seasons racing in NZ Formula First (the Antipodean name for FVee), and was 14th in the 2018-19 standings.

?I am feeling very positive about this event and am very excited to be able to compete at such a level of racing that’s recognised worldwide,” said the 17-year-old F4 debutant.

“The chance to compete and get a good result at the FIA Motorsport Games gives me the chance to hopefully be recognised by teams higher up in the motorsport ladder.?

The three new announcements join Russia’s Pavel Bulanstev, Portugal’s Guilherme de Oliveira and Denmark’s Malthe Jakobsen in driving the KCMG-designed hybrid cars in the F4 Cup at Vallelunga in November.

Belen Garcia and Stuwie White are expected to be named as the representatives for Spain and South Africa respectively.
