The inaugural FIA Motorsport Games Formula 4 champion Andrea Rosso has signed to race for Cram Motorsport in Italian F4 this year.
Rosso stepped up from karts into F4 with Antonelli Motorsport in 2019, but scored points just once in 12 starts before his campaign ended early.
The 16-year-old went on to represent Italy in the first Motorsport Games competition on home soil at Vallelunga and won the F4 event against more experienced drivers.
“I am very happy to wear the Cram colours in 2020,” he said.
“We are facing a very peculiar year for the whole world, but for my part I will give all my abilities in order to obtain the best possible result.”
Cram’s history includes the 2000 Formula Renault Eurocup title with Felipe Massa, plus the final Formula Abarth crown in 2013 with Alessio Rovera.
It ran four cars for much of the 2019 Italian F4 season, with a sixth place finish by Roee Meyuhas at Misano its best result.
“Welcome, Andrea. “We are happy to have the winner of the FIA ??Motorsport Games with us,” said team manager Gabriele Rosei.
“I have high hopes for this collaboration. We can’t wait to get started.”
The opening round of the 2020 Italian F4 season was originally scheduled for May 15-17 at Monza, but the ACI has yet to make any adjustments to the calendar in light of the COVID-19 outbreak that has been gripping Italy particular.
