The 2023 Spanish Formula 4 season has come to an end at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. A very positive last round for Tecnicar Motorsport Solutions by scoring points and reaching the rookie podium twice.

The weekend started with a good qualifying that allowed our driver Hiyu Yamakoshi to reach the points once again this season. In addition, this result led him to be third in the rookie category.

Lorenzo Castillo was involved in numerous battles that prevented him from progressing, although in the final part of the race he was a second faster than the drivers in front. Eric Gené achieved one of the best results of the season, feeling comfortable in the car.

The second race in Barcelona was also positive. Hiyu Yamakoshi improved his result from the first race and returned to the podium as third in the rookies category.

The season concluded with the best result of the weekend for the Tecnicar team. Hiyu Yamakoshi returned to score points. Griffin Peebles came close to the points zone by finishing 13th.

Eric Gené had a consistent pace and Lorenzo Castillo came back from the pit lane to finish 20th.


Griffin Peebles: “I had to manage tire degradation. I was able to make progress but the track limits made us finish outside the points.”

Eric Gené: “It was one of the best weekends of the season. I had to be careful with the track limits, but overall it was a good round. I want to thank the team and my family for the support this season.”

Hiyu Yamakoshi: “The racing has been amazing. I had very good pace and was able to move up a lot of positions getting a great result. It has been a fantastic weekend, I am happy for the team.”

Lorenzo Castillo: “It has been an intense weekend to end the year, with many battles on track. I had a good pace and was able to move up a lot of positions. Now it’s time to focus on next year.”
