24/11/2019 A winning season!
And a busy season it was! A great F4 season it has been with Van Amersfoort Racing and driver Dennis Hauger. We've set new limits and set new records. Done things, never done before and come home with some prizes. Narrowly missed out on the ADAC F4 driver championship and team championship, but convincingly taking the Italian F4 Driver and Team championship. With 12 victories in Italy and 6 in Germany and with two hattrick weekends (winning all 3 races in a weekend, Hockenheim (German F4) and Monza (Italian F4)), setting new limits for coming season. Been one with high's and lows, but we'll learn from the lows and rember the high's. Thanks Dennis Hauger and family for the mega drive and the support and my collegues and Van Amersfoort Racing. Together we made it possible!

Not a lot of time and opportunity to update on the start of the season, but it has been flying!
Two main project this year with the 2019 Castrol Toyota Racing Series which tool place earlier this year where we had a positive run with American Driver Parker Locke and Victory Motor Racing. Always a joy to stay and race in New Zealand.
Currently at the racing start of the German and Italian F4 with the home team for 4 years ,Van Amersfoort Racing. We will be challenging for the wins with quick Norwegian driver Dennis Hauger. Had a good pre-season in testing with good pace, now its time to rack up the points!

20/08/2018 The hot summer months
A few race weekends under the sun! With Van Amersfoort Racing in the ADAC F4, two racing weekends have been concluded in the summer heat. We had good succes during the Formula 1 weekend at Hockenheim where we had a 1-2 finish in Race 1, winning driver Frederik Vesti. Two weeks later at the Nurburgring, he also showed strong pace in all three races and taking another win. We are looking forward to the last round in Hockenheim mid september and hope to score well for the teams!
Meanwhile, we went home to the roots at Silverstone, supporting 360 racing in an LMP3 during the 4 hours of Silverstone in ELMS. Was great to work with the team again after 5 years and great to be racing in the UK again.

02/10/2017 It's already done! De German F4 season 2017 to an end.
The last stretch in the Germand ADAC F4 2017 season has flown past. With only three rounds since the last new item, the rounds have gone by swiftly. Especially with back to back race events at the Sachsenring and Hockenheimring. Both those events have been good for us at the Van Amersfoort F4 team which we are gladly part of.
At the Sachsenring we had the very first on track P1-2-3 in the history of the team. A full podium lock out. A great feeling and achievement! Hockenheim has also been good with two VAR race wins. Sadly not enough to take the driver championship but with 10 wins out of 21 races, it has been a great season!
Now all eyes on development, winter testing and 2018!
We have also been active helping out Black Arts Racing in Zhejang and Shanghai for the Asian Formula Renault. Great to be out there again and congratulations for the team based in Zhuhai getting the driver and team championship!
20/07/2017 Mid-Season balance.
We are over half way! Time really flies. Doing well in German F4 with Van Amersfoort Racing which occupies all of the time. Big focus on winning and getting the championship(s).
Three more rounds to go! Come and see us at the Nurburgring, Sachsenring or the final at Hockenheim!

Ameya improved and enhanced skills that is being taken to the European season.
After retrun Mid-Februari, straight back for a second full-time season with Van Amersfoort Racing in Formula 4. This year focussing once again on the German F4 supported with Italian F4. The first opening race in Misano has been a success which promises a lot for the first German F4 race in Oschersleben!
22/12/2016 The year came and went
The 2016 has gone by like a whirlwind. A lack of updates throughout the year but a busy one nonetheless. A good start with the 2016 Toyota Racing series which directly fell into pre-season preparation of a very succesful Van Amersfoort Racing Formula 4 season. With winter testing concluded all eyes are forward to repeating the win in the driver championship in 2017.

Also, some exciting additional projects for the winter time next to the ongoing work and development with Van Amersfoort.
20/06/2016 Already mid season in German F4.
Halfway through the German ADAC F4 season already. Time has flown. Since coming back from the Toyota Racing Series we have been working together with the Dutch renowned single seater team Van Amersfoort racing.
A bit of a break between races, but at Van Amersfoort Racing work continues with testing, development and simulator training. Been a tough start with my main man Moritz Muller-Crepon, but working hard to show the real pace. Good that Joey Mawson is leading the pack in F4. Few more nice circuits on the calendar ahead with the Red Bull Ring being our next stop for racing. See you guys soon!
17/02/2015 Toyota Racing Series for the 3rd year running.
A lot has happened in recent months with a very busy end of 2015 with races in Asian Formula Renault, LMP3, German F4 and lots of winter testing.
But already the 2016 motorsport year has kicked-off with the 2016 Toyota Racing Series. On invitation of ETEC Motorsport, Motorsport Consulting has provided race engineering support in New Zealand. Where in the previous two years data engineering and simulator engineering have been the tasks, this has been expanded to running and engineering a car and driver.
It has been an intense 6 weeks once again. With weather influences, car influences and challenges on track. However a great experience nonetheless and preparation for the 2017 season has already started.
Now it is back to European racing where a new project will be started. More info soon!
16/07/2015 Mid season break? No chance!
Time flies, but no time to stand still. We’ve been active in MSA F4 in the last few races as well as working with FF Corse with their Ferrari 458 cars all around the UK.
Racing didn’t just focus on races in the UK but also in Monza for FIA F3 where we enjoyed a good weekend with Mücke Motorsport providing a race engineering role.
Next to that we been busy with several sim projects and the second half of the year is looking interesting with a new project starting with a very special and interesting car.
2016 is also already on the radar so let’s keep the momentum going!
01/05/2015 Busy start of the 2015 season!
As the title says, it has been a busy start of the 2015 racing season! Several projects kicking off quite early. With a long winter of work it was finally there again in January. the Toyota Racing Series Season in New Zealand. For a second year we were invited to help driver development in an on-track simulator. The sim had been enhanced with accurate trackmodels but most of all a car model for the new Toyota FT-50, the new chassis the TRS series was running for the first time. Also data/performance engineering was high on the agenda. The six weeks have been intense with the cars having some teething problems from the start as they were very very new but it has been a good season once again with the top of the single seater drivers competing against each other. We hope to be part of it again in 2016!
Upon return in was straight into a lot of mileage and testing in the new MSA Formula 4 in the UK. The FIA backed series allows young drivers a platform in single seaters. We have done a lot of mileage at the start of the season and developing the car as responsible race engineer. The main focus is on driver development and it will be a very interesting season in this competitive series! Looking forward on seeing everyone in the BTCC paddock where MSA Formula 4 is part of.
Additionally the ties with FF Corse have been strengthened again as we will be providing engineering support in their different categories racing the Ferrari 458 Challenge and 458 GT3. The first weekend in Donington has already been very fruitful with wins and podiums! Looking forward to a full season with them.
Stay tuned here or on the facebook page www.facebook.com/MotorsportConsulting. As we are likely to more interesting projects this year!
iZone Driver Performance and ETEC Motorsport team up for the 2015 Toyota Racing Series
New Zealand’s Toyota Racing Series (TRS) is a great opportunity for young drivers, offering significant track time on challenging and exciting circuits over five consecutive weekends in Jan/Feb 2015. For this coming season ETEC Motorsport has joined forces with the UK’s leading Driver Development Centre, iZone Driver Performance, to create the ultimate platform for success.
Working together, this exclusive partnership offers a unique preparation and development package, which looks to progressively increase a drivers technical, mental and physical capabilities. Prior to heading to New Zealand drivers will have the opportunity to fully prepare at iZone Driver Performance Centre’s cutting edge facilities at Silverstone Circuit, followed up in New Zealand at each circuit with ETEC Motorsport’s own ‘triple screen, r-factor monocoque simulator’, this will ensure they have the best possible advantage over their competitors.
Using bespoke technology, simulator training will take place both prior to and during the intense TRS season. After extensive development and practice at iZone with the new car model, the Toyota FT50, combined with highly detailed tracks, there will be a bespoke ETEC Motorsport race simulator available at every race weekend. Not only will this assist drivers to prepare for their up-and-coming races, it will help to keep that ‘winning edge’!
ETEC Motorsport - Trevor Sheumack (Team Manager and Founder)
“Following on from the success of our simulator training last year, we’re really pleased to collaborate with iZone Driver Performance Centre to enhance the project. Drivers will benefit from a prior understanding of the car and tracks, ensuring they make the most of their time on-track. Not only can drivers get a lot of laps under their belt in the simulators, they can also benefit from the specialised techniques developed by iZone.”
iZone driver performance - John Pratt (Performance Director)
“We are delighted to develop a partnership with ETEC Motorsport! TRS is a great way to keep racing over the European winter for junior single-seater drivers and together with ETEC Motorsport we are able to provide the best preparation package to make the journey to New Zealand a pleasurable and enriching experience. We set out to provide the current drivers the same footsteps and tools as former ETEC driver and the 2014 TRS Champion Andrew Tang.”
Rik Kasius (Engineer and Driver Developer)
“After working with ETEC Motorsport’s on-track simulator during TRS last season, I was able to see a great opportunity for drivers competing in NZ. More knowledge about the challenging tracks and the car before arriving is a simple step to get ahead of the fierce competition. Especially for the drivers that are new to the series, the inside knowledge that can be gained through this collaboration could prove invaluable.”
The benefits of this exclusive partnership are available to all 2015 TRS competitors, for training to commence in November at iZone Driver Performance Centre Get in touch to discover how iZone and ETEC Motorsport can get your season off to a winning start!
