    FAQ

    Why can only 14 and 15-year-olds participate?
    15 is the minimum FIA approved age to drive a Formula 4 car and 16 is considered the optimum age to start single-seater racing.

    Why is ‘wellbeing’ a requirement?
    Being fast is important, but being safe is essential. To race long distances at high speeds, you need to be physically and mentally strong.

    Why have separate boy & girl races and winners?
    To ensure equal gender opportunity.

    Will Racing Star be coming to my country?
    Our goal is to launch the competition in multiple regions around the world to give youngsters a chance to become a Formula 4 racing driver.

    Hello, I'm a 16 year old sim racer. This is my dream. I'm slowly working towards it, recently going pro on assetto corsa competizione. But I'm 17 in November 2022. Does this mean I'm too old?

    I'm born on the 12th September 2006 does that make me too old?

    As you would be 16 on the first of January, 2023, you would indeed be too old to participate in the races/final
