Abarth Racing Unveils Plans for 2021

28 January 2021 | Abarth has unveiled its race and rally plans for 2021 with its eighth season powering the Italian F4 Championship and third year of the Abarth Rally Cup. Abarth engine units will also power the ADAC F4 season for the seventh year.

Abarth Racing Unveils Plans for 2021

Abarth on track in both Italy and Germany
Numbers are constantly rising for the single-seater series with Abarth engines that have seen an average of over 28 drivers per race, with a maximum of 34 cars on the track. For the Italian F4 Championship Powered by Abarth, the 2021 season will be the 8th with a chassis-engine package praised by all insiders, so much so it has been selected in multiple national Formula 4 series, including Germany’s ADAC F4 series, the 7th edition of which will take place in 2021. The 160-hp Abarth 414TF 1400 cc T-Jet continues to be one of the most commonly used and reliable engines in the preparatory series. As the 2021 season begins, the Abarth Power Unit is once again demonstrating its potential in the UAE F4 series where young drivers can prepare for the season in the best way possible. The big names as the season begins include Enzo Trulli, son of the former F1 driver Jarno; Hamda Al Qubaisi, who began competing in the 2020 Italian series; and several drivers who have already been announced as starters in the European series, such as Spain’s Pepe Marti, the American Enzo Scionti and Germany’s Jonas Ried. The Middle Eastern series will be concentrated in January and February, while on May 16th the Italian F4 Championship and ADAC F4 championship will start in Le Castellet and Oschersleben, respectively.  

Abarth Rally Cup – European Rally Championship: a perfect combination once again in 2021
The confirmations for Abarth Racing are also coming in the world of rallying with the Abarth 124 rally, again due to feature in the FIA-ERC, the European championship that will see the adrenaline-packed Scorpion sports cars compete in 6 of the 8 scheduled events. There will be a rich prize fund for the 2021 edition. At each race, the winner will receive a prize of €10,000, while the drivers mounting the second and third steps of the podium will win €8,000 and €6,000. The title of Abarth Rally Cup 2021 champion will be worth €25,000. To follow the victory of Andrea Mabellini, who also won the FIA R-GT Cup, the race for the 2021 title begins with 4 events on tarmac and 2 on gravel. The 2021 season will kick off from May 6th to 8th at the Rally Islas Canarias, on tarmac. It will then move on to its two stages on gravel in Poland (June 18th-20th) and Latvia (July 1st-3rd), later continuing with the Rally Roma Capitale, the Barum Rally Zlín in the Czech Republic and the season finale in Hungary from October 22nd to 24th. While the Abarth Rally Cup is now a certainty, there will definitely be no lack of appearances of the Abarth 124 rally in the stages of the WRC World Championship, where it has always given its opponents a hard time.

We value customer feedback

Ancaster Nissan South Croydon staff were good because they were pleasant and explained all the procedures clearly. I have dealt with the dealership for many years.

Ancaster Hyundai Croydon provided excellent sales support and I would highly recommend them.

Ancaster Nissan Slough were great because the cars offer value for money, good spec and good after sales follow up considering tight restrictions of lockdown.

My experience at Ancaster Fiat Dartford was memorable because throughout the whole process i could not fault the communication.The only thing was that now and again the conversation was directed to my partner not to me he was paying for the car but it was for me.Other than that all we as should be.

Ancaster Hyundai Croydon were really helpful and I'd recommend them because every aspect of the purchase was clear, easy and a great service! The sales advisor was excellent and answered every query to a satisfactory level.

The experience at Ancaster Hyundai Croydon was good because from start to finish I was treated with curtesy and friendliness. Everything was explained in detail and I found it an enjoyable experience.

The experience at Ancaster Fiat Dartford was great because the salesman communicated with me by phone or email every step of the way and sorted out any issues promptly and courteously. I also appreciated the extra touches like the video presentation of my car, the offer to tune the radio to my choice of stations, and the offer to talk me through controls etc as soon as the car had been delivered to me. The car delivery service was a big bonus as I live some distance from the dealer and tier restrictions were in place. Considering I did not in the end visit the dealer and bought the car unseen, I could not be happier with the outcome.

My experience at Ancaster Fiat Dartford was positive because Michael Rees was professional and helpful and made the sale simple and easy for us. Very happy!

I had a great experience at Ancaster Nissan Bromley because the staff were so friendly and helpful. Nathan seemed like a natural and comfortable person to chat to and wasn't pushy in the slightest. Since dealing with him I have given his name over to my neighbours who have already visited for a test drive and a friend of ours is also planning on paying him a visit. He was very helpful and down to earth and we are very pleased with our new car thanks to him. Although our experience with the Eltham branch was positive, unfortunately there wasn't much they could do in terms of a deal on the car we liked so we tried the Bromley branch, met Nathan and he was more accommodating to our requirements and budget. This is why I have recommended him to people and will continue to do so.

I was pleased with Ancaster Nissan Penge and would recommend them because the new manager Jeffery was amazing and sorted out the problem I had with the previous team Jeff and Darren have turned the showroom around great team now there ,if it was not for them I would not of gone back there ,they went beyound in sorting out the problem and were very helpful in sorting out the problem GREAT GUYS

The experience at Ancaster Nissan Eltham was great because it was easy, quick and efficient

Ancaster Hyundai Croydon were great because they were very patient and considerate with my new vehicle as it was my first vehicle. I would only say that I was slightly disappointed a simple mechanical fault, that I noticed straightaway had not been checked before the purchase and handover of the vehicle. I would have expected something like this would have been checked and picked up on especially as it was not a problem that developed but one that was there from the start.

I would recommend Ancaster Nissan Slough to friends and family because the staff are very friendly and helpful. I felt that Ancaster were honest were making sure I had the right car and plan for my needs and not just trying to meet targets.
