FFSA protege Bryan Elpitiya will contest the French F4 championship in 2014.

Elpitiya, 15, makes the switch to junior single-seaters after a year in the French Federation’s karting programme.

He was picked up by FFSA after finishing runner-up in the Spanish KF3 championship in 2012 and, since then, took part in CIK-FIA World KF-Junior Championship and the European KF-Junior Championship, finishing 19th and 12th overall respectively. He also took fourth in the International Rok Cup finals in the Junior class.

“There were several different reasons that have led me go on this new car racing adventure in 2014″, stated Elpitiya. “In French F4, everyone is fighting on equal terms that was something I really wanted. I could be the youngest driver on the grid and I believe F4 is a great way to prepare myself for a future move to Formula Renault 2.0, which is among my goals”.

Elpitiya is the first driver to be confirmed for this year’s French F4 season.
