Arden CEO Garry Horner echoed Horsten’s optimism and is hopeful the team can come out at the season opener at Brands Hatch next April fighting on all fronts.
“We are delighted that Bart has joined the Arden family and will be competing in the 2019 British F4 Championship with us.
Bart has the talent, experience and temperament to shine in F4 next year and we are looking forward to enjoying a very successful season together.”
The 2019 British F4 Championship will begin at the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit on the 6-7 April.
News of Horsten's British F4 teammates will be announced in due course over the winter months, as the team prepares for their title defence next season.
