Introduction

About Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport
Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport is a Dallas, Texas based professional race team that is set to compete in three open-wheel championships in 2022.

Our goal is very simple: to utilize the ladder system combined with our driver development program like no other in existence.

Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport is the most dominant team in the history of United States F4 Championship Powered by Honda, one of the most competitive in Formula Regional Americas, and is set to embark on a new challenge, the USF Juniors Championship Presented by Cooper Tires.

Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport also maintains an individually monitored fitness and mental toughness program designed for today’s developing drivers. Our on-track results speak for themselves with the team having the most wins in the history of USF4.

Kiwi International Connection
With development at the forefront of our efforts, Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport offers Driver Coaching, Data, and Engineering from some of the most respected professionals in the industry. What separates us from other programs is that we are a true international team with a strong history in motorsports including two-time Formula Ford Champion, USA and New Zealand Formula Atlantic Championships, New Zealand Trans Am Champion, New Zealand Rally Championship, and Indy Lights Champions.

Our team members have a history of working for the top names in racing-such as Ganassi, McLaren, Risi, Brabham, Ralt, AJ Foyt and more. In 2021, we signed a deal with the W Series to test up and coming female competitors for their worldwide racing program. The Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport outfit will be the official test team for female competitors from around the world prior to being accepted into the W Series.

Victory Motor Racing in New Zealand, now known as Kiwi Motorsport, has run cars in the Toyota Racing series in New Zealand since the series inception in 2005, including Formula One World Championship and Red Bull associated drivers Brendon Hartley and Daniil Kyvat.

The goal of Crosslink Kiwi Motorsport is to strive to be the team that produces the next F1 driver all while winning races and championships in every series we compete in.

F4 U.S. Championship

Launched in 2014, the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) Formula 4 Championship was created to offer young racing drivers around the world the opportunity to take the first step from karting into the world of single-seater racing. Designed to be a globally recognized yet affordable step between Karting and the FIA Formula Regional Championship, FIA Formula 4 allows drivers to compare themselves to the best young talent, not only in their own country, but across other championships around the world. The FIA is an association established as the International Association of Recognized Automobile Clubs to represent the interests of motoring organizations and motor car users. The FIA is mostly known as the governing body for many auto racing events. The FIA also promotes road safety around the world.

In 2016, SCCA Pro Racing and the FIA combined forces to create the F4 U.S. Championship. F4 U.S. teams and drivers are aligned with the FIA and series partners: Honda, Honda Performance Development, Hankook Tire America and Ligier Automotive. Having the F4 U.S. chassis manufactured in the United States by Ligier 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.

The Championships have continued to grow thanks to support and partnership with Parella Motorsports Holdings taking over the commercial rights in 2021. FR Americas is one of several series showcased during the SpeedTour festivals of speed along with FR Americas, the Trans Am Series, Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA), and the International GT Series. 

Each race weekend offers plenty of track time for drivers: test and official practice sessions, 30 minute qualifying session, and three 30-minute races/rounds per weekend. Altogether, the drivers have nearly four hours of track time, allowing them to increase their experience in open-wheel racing while still making time for driver development.

One of the Championship’s greatest strengths, compared to other young driver categories, is the advanced driver development offerings available to participants. Between series-organized learning opportunities and analytical work carried out by the drivers in cooperation with their engineers, F4 U.S. prepares drivers in a unique way. 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.

The top three finishing drivers at each individual round will receive prize money. Additional contingency awards will also be giving out including the Omologato Perfectly Time Move of the Race. At the Champions Banquet, scholarships, prize money, and contingency awards, including Super License Points, are handed out to drivers finishing high enough in the Championship points. In total, drivers participating in the F4 U.S. Championship are eligible for over $275,000 in awards and scholarships. Additional information about the Champions Scholarship is available here.

FR Americas Championship

Launched in 2017, the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) Formula Regional Championship was created to offer young race car drivers around the world the opportunity to take the next step up from Formula 4 in the world of open-wheel racing. The FIA is an association established as the International Association of Recognized Automobile Clubs to represent the interests of motoring organizations and motor car users. The FIA is mostly known as the governing body for many auto racing events. The FIA also promotes road safety around the world.

In 2018, SCCA Pro Racing and the FIA combined forces to create the F3 Americas Championship, now known as the Formula Regional (FR) Americas Championship. FR Americas teams and drivers are aligned with the FIA and series partners: Honda, Honda Performance Development, Hankook Tire America and Ligier Automotive. Having the FR Americas chassis manufactured in the United States by Ligier 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.

The Championships have continued to grow thanks to support and partnership with Parella Motorsports Holdings taking over the commercial rights in 2021. FR Americas is one of several series showcased during the SpeedTour festivals of speed along with F4 U.S., the Trans Am Series, Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA), and the International GT Series. 

Each race weekend offers plenty of track time for drivers: test and official practice sessions, 30 minute qualifying session, and three 35-minute races/rounds per weekend. Altogether, the drivers have nearly four hours of track time, allowing them to increase their experience in open-wheel racing while still making time for driver development.

One of FR America’s greatest strengths, compared to other young driver categories, is the advanced driver development offerings available to participants.

The Championship is also open to drivers who aren’t looking to climb the motorsports ladder. The FR Americas Masters Cup contingency program is for drivers age 35 and over and is seamlessly incorporated in to each event weekend. 

The top three finishing drivers at each individual round will receive prize money. Additional contingency awards will also be giving out including the Omologato Perfectly Time Move of the Race. At the Champions Banquet, scholarships, prize money, and contingency awards, including Super License Points, are handed out to drivers finishing high enough in the Championship points. In total, drivers participating in the FR Americas Championship are eligible for over $675,000 in awards and scholarships. Additional information about the Champions Scholarship will be available very soon. 

Stepping into the FR Americas Championship Powered by Honda builds upon the progression offered from F4 both on and off the track.  In 2016, SCCA Pro Racing introduced the F4 U.S. Championship, offering the first step to competitors’ open-wheel development from karting. These two Championships are some of the fastest ways for an aspiring driver to gain experience to an international racing platform. With driving training, unmatched affordability and strong manufacturer support, competitors can grow and succeed into the higher levels of motorsports.
