Christian Rasmussen was only nine years old when he won his first go-kart championship, and many races, wins and championships later, the talented young driver from the Copenhagen suburb of Dragor, upgraded the racing class and won his first Formula race. His talent is so remarkable that he in early 2017 was awarded “Talent of the Year” – a highly coveted awarded by the Danish Automobile Sports Union.
Christian Rasmussen was awarded “Motorsport Talent of the Year” and together with Jan Magnussen, he will in 2017 fight for the ultimate dream of becoming a professional racing driver.
The successful 17-year old Christian Rasmussen joins Jan Magnussen’s Team in 2017 after landing a Silver Medal in the Danish Formula Ford Championship the previous year. The contract with Magnussen Racing Experience means that Christian Rasmussen in 2017 will represent Jan Magnussen in the new Danish Formula 4 Championship.
There are enormous expectations to Christian Rasmussen’s collaboration with Magnussen Racing Experience. The Team has competed in the Danish Thundersport Championship since 2013, confirms experienced representatives in Danish Motorsport – and Magnussen Racing Experience also collaborates closely with major players among large Danish corporations.
Magnussen Racing Experience is owned and managed by former Formula-1 driver and four times Le Mans winner, Jan Magnussen. Magnussen actively participates in the management of the team and acts as a coach for the individual drivers in the team.
As a member on Magnussen’s team, Christian Rasmussen will drive a much more advanced racing car and be part of an International team which will require close communication and interaction with many stakeholder including engineers, data- & statistical expert, sponsors and the various media surrounding the sport.
After delivering excellent results in the 2017-season, Christian Rasmussen's goal will be to step up to Formula 3 in 2018.
The fast Formula 4 cars are designed with economic optimisation in mind, and to allow especially young driver the possibility to develop in various areas. In addition, the car is designed to have several similarities with Formula 1 cars, i.e. the recognizable wings, which generate a desired downwards, force on the car, and the sequential gearbox combined with the paddle shift by the steering wheel.
The Formula 4 cars used for the F4 US Championship are produced by Onroak, which also produces cars for prototype and touring car racing.
The engine is a 2,0-litre suction-engine from Honda with approximately 160hp. The car has a combined weight including the driver, of approximately 570 kg, yielding super sports-car capabilities including 0-100km/h in about 3 seconds.
Formula 4 is a natural upgrade from go-carting, allowing the driver an exciting step into the world of real racing-cars. Here, the driver has to learn to deal with gearshifts, suspension, down-force, and data-communication with the engineers.
