Last season, Patrik made his British F4 debut – where he went onto take four podium finishes with Carlin. These consisted of two second positions and two third positions over the season, on his way to 8th overall in the championship.
Patrik now joins Arden in a bid for the title of British F4 Champion.
It will be the Flying Finn’s third season of Formula Car racing in the UK, after he made his debut in the BRSCC Formula Ford 1600 Championship – taking 3rd in the coveted Triple Crown Event, before moving into his maiden F4 season last year.
Patrik joins Red Bull Juniors Jack Doohan and Dennis Hauger, to complete a formidable British F4 team alongside Sebastian Priaulx – son of World Touring Car Championship legend Andy Priaulx.
The Arden quartet have been busy in preparing for the opening round at Brands Hatch, as the pre-season testing draws to a close.
Patrik Pasma “I'm very excited to start the new season with a new team. This will be my second season in British F4 and I am determined to challenge for the title. Can't wait to get my racing helmet on!"
Ben Bloomfield – Arden’s F4 Team Manager: “We are delighted that Patrik completes Arden’s British F4 team for 2018 and so far, he’s shown impressive pace right from the first test.
We have always been in it to win it and with Patrik we believe we can, however it will be no easy task against our competitors which have shown very strongly in the pre-season testing.
Patrik is very focused and is great to work with. He is in good shape having been working on his fitness throughout the winter and has the championship title firmly in his sights.”
The opening round of the British F4 Championship takes place on the 7-8 April at the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit. Follow the team online and on Social Media for more updates about our pre-season tests, as the build up to the 2018 season continues.
