Lirim Zendeli and Tom Beckhäuser have joined Charouz Racing System for the 2018 ADAC F4 Championship and selected rounds of the Italian F4 Championship.

The pair join Charouz as the Czech team moves into the F4 junior single-seater category in collaboration with US Racing team, a team that was founded by F1 race winner Ralf Schumacher and Gerhard Unger. Both drivers will race under the US Racing – CHRS team name.

Zendeli, a German karting champion, returns for a second season in the ADAC F4 series after claiming three wins and five podiums on his way to fourth in the 2017 championship. His target for this year is to improve on that position and claim the title.

Nineteen-year-old Beckhäuser joins the team at the start of his second season of racing. Last year was a learning year for the Czech driver and after a successful winter campaign in UAE F4 – finishing third in the drivers’ championship – he is looking to make his mark in the German series.

Both drivers will also tackle selected rounds of the Italian F4 series with US Racing – CHRS, giving them the opportunity to get more valuable experience in the Tatuus-Abarth F4 car.

After my successful winter campaign in the UAE, I hope I can have a strong season in ADAC F4.
