Kami Laliberte will be doing his third season at Van Amersfoort Racing in ADAC Formula 4, as it was announced by the team today.
The 17 year-old Canadian is aiming to improve on his overall 9th position in the standings from 2016, which was his first full season in the series. At the penultimate round at Zandvoort he claimed his first win, beating the rest of the field.
Throughout this winter he has done Castrol Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand, where he managed a 10th place in the Championship.
Team boss Frits Van Amersfoort has a lot of praising words for the driver:
“Last year, during his first complete season with our team in German F4, Kami gathered precious experience and matured a lot. He accepted additional challenges over the last two years with two complete winter series in New Zealand. In auto racing, whether it is on track or even on the simulator, adding more and more kilometres will always remain a very good recipe. Our young friend has applied this theory and made progress.”
Responsible for the Van Amersfoort Racing programme Jeroen de Jong adds:
“Now that he is entering his second season in F4 and in the light of the results obtained at the end of 2016, Kami can hope for great results in the German championship. Since on track the competition is fierce, we intend to provide him the best possible environment and provide him the car that will help him recorded records that will be up to his own expectations. We have a very good team and all the necessary resources to insure his success.”
ADAC Formula 4 will be run in seven weekends from April to September.
