G4 Racing have announced their first driver for 2022, confirming the engagement of the Peruvian racer Matias Zagazeta.
A renewed commitment for the Barcelona-based Swiss operation team, facing its second season in Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine after having collected two victories and the sixth place in the 2021 team standings.
For the upcoming season, Zagazeta will be at the wheel of the first of three single-seaters lined up by G4 Racing team.
He made his open wheels debut in 2020, scoring two rookie wins on his way to 3rd place in the rookie standings in British F4. He returned to the series in 2021, after contesting two rounds of the Formula 4 UAE Championship. He was a strong title contender, claiming four wins and eleven podiums, ending the season as a runner-up.

“I am delighted to have Matias on board for this season as he showed great potential and talent in British F4 last year. I have no doubts that Matias is going to show his class in the very competitive Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine as well, as he has been preparing all winter to give his best.”
