With an in-house driver coach, data and video analysis as well as services from a reputable engine builder, Team Crosslink focuses on the driver and assisting them in making the next step of their career.

F4 U.S. Championship

Throughout its history, both the SCCA and SCCA Pro Racing have had a desire to grow open wheel racing here in North America. Their support of the F1600, F2000, Formula Lites and Formula Atlantic programs has kept these classes at the forefront of open wheel motorsports, both at the club and pro level.

Looking ahead, the SCCA sees FIA F4 as a means to modernize entry-level open-wheel racing for participants starting at age 15, around a contemporary, cost conscious formula. The SCCA has chosen partners that embrace these ideals and can support this vision with appropriate technology and products.

The selected F4 powerplant is based on the engine currently used in the Civic® Type R® recently launched in Europe, detuned to meet FIA-mandated output of approximately 160 Hp. The engine and the ECU will be sealed to help with parity and compliance.

The F4 chassis is a modern, robust, and highly capable chassis that is conducive to exceptional performance at various engine power levels. Both the engine and chassis will meet FIA homologation requirements. New Formula 4 tires have been developed specifically for junior single-seater racing by Pirelli engineers in Milan and incorporate learning from Pirelli’s participation in Formula One and feeder categories GP3 and GP2.

F3 Americas Championship

The F3 Americas Championship Powered by Honda offers young talent the opportunity to demonstrate their skills on an international platform while keeping affordability and safety as key elements of the program. Having the F3 Americas chassis manufactured in the United States by Onroak Automotive, the Honda Civic Type R motor built in Anna, Ohio, and the Hankook tires marketed and distributed out of Nashville, Tennessee, aids in affordability and availability.

Stepping into the F3 Americas series builds upon the progression offered from the F4 U.S. Championship both on and off the track. With driver training, unmatched affordability and strong manufacturer support, competitors can grow and succeed into the higher levels of motorsports.

F3 Americas offers plenty of track time for drivers. Race meetings will offer three 30-minute races with qualifying and two 30-minute practices built into the race weekend. Altogether, the drivers have around three hours of track time available per race meeting, allowing them to increase their experience in open-wheel racing.

One of F3 America’s greatest strengths, compared to other young driver categories, is the analytical work that must be carried out by the drivers in cooperation with their engineers. The series is a spec series, allowing multicar or single car teams the same opportunity of success with capped costs; however, the cars allow for significant setup adjustments, which increases the drivers’ technical knowledge and gains experience required for moving up the open wheel ladder, whether with a large or small team.
