After the success of the 2019 season, with an average of over 31 drivers per race, the Swede is the first confirmed driver for the Italian F4 Championship powered by Abarth 2020.
PREMA Powerteam will welcome Swedish racer Dino Beganovic for the 2020 Formula 4 season. Beganovic, who turns 16 in a few days, will make his single seater racing debut with the team in a programme that will include the full Italian Formula 4 Championship and selected events in the German ADAC-promoted series.
After starting his karting career in 2011, and experiencing a successful Junior career, Beganovic made his breakthrough in 2018 and 2019, winning two national Swedish championships and impressing at international level where he established himself as a consistent front runner ending up second in the 2019 WSK Euro Series.
The 2020 season brings a fundamental step up for him. In addition to making his first foray in single-seaters, he will join the Ferrari Driver Academy which will provide even more support to develop his potential. Beganovic, who has already made his first steps in testing, is bracing for an exciting season.
Angelo Rosin – Team Principal: “Dino really impressed us so far so we are really looking forward to seeing him on-track for his competitive debut. He is young and promising, so he’s a perfect candidate for PREMA Powerteam! In addition, we are delighted with the continued collaboration with Ferrari and its Driver Academy which is set to really help Dino as he graduates to single-seaters. We expect a highly competitive season, with many potential top contenders joining in, but competition is what drives us and we will be ready from the start.”
Dino Beganovic: ”This is an amazing opportunity. I can’t thank the Ferrari Driver Academy enough for putting their trust in me, and I really couldn’t have asked for a better team behind me than Prema. They have been the outstanding force not just in Formula 4, but also Formula 3 and Formula 2, in recent years and have the sort of invaluable experience I need in my rookie year. I’m sure there will be a lot to learn, but I’ve felt at home in the F4 car from the start and I have the best people possible around me. I can’t wait to kick off my first season of single-seater racing!”
