Ireland and Italy announce drivers for Motorsport Games F4 Cup

by Rachel Hillman

Ireland and Italy have become the latest two nations to announce their drivers for the Motorsport Games Formula 4 Cup.

F4 South East Asia race-winner and former British F4 racer Lucca Allen will represent Ireland.? The 17-year-old is currently second in the SEA standings, with two rounds left of the season and eight wins to his name.

?Can?t wait to get on track with some of the best young drivers in the world, gonna be gunning to bring the world championship back home!? Allen said on Instagram.

Current host nation Italy will field champion karter Andrea Rosso, who finished 25th in Italian F4 in a part-season this year as a rookie with Antonelli Motorsport. He scored two points, both at 2019 Motorsport Games venue Vallelunga, during his 12-race stint in the championship.

Last year he won the Trofeo Andrea Margutti in OK class karts, and won the OKJ version of the event in 2017. The WSK Super Master Series was also won by the teenager while driving a OKJ kart that year.

?I?m super honoured to finally say I?ll be representing Italy in the next FIA Motorsport Olympic Games in the Formula 4 Cup,? said Rosso.

?The event is going to be in Vallelunga (Rome) and I?m sure it will be memorable as it is its first edition; so guys if you are around come and have a look. Special thanks for this stunning opportunity, it means a lot to me.?

Rosso is the first confirmed driver for the second edition of the F4 Cup. The inaugural running takes place this weekend, with only 11 named as entries so far.
