Phinsys by Argenti add Isaac Barashi to ROKiT British F4 driver line-up
Phinsys by Argenti will complete the 2022 ROKiT F4 British Championship certified by FIA as a four-car operation after confirming the signing of Isaac Barashi.
The 17-year-old has tested extensively throughout the year with the team to gain valuable experience and mileage in the Tatuus T-421, and will now round out that programme with his first competitive action, starting at Silverstone this weekend [23-25 September].
“I’m very excited to compete in the final two rounds of the ROKiT British F4 season with Argenti,” says Barashi.
“I’ve had a really productive year so far, bedding in with the team and getting used to the challenges of a Formula 4 car.
“The ambition is to race full-time in the championship in the future, so with the winter months ahead, these races at Silverstone and Brands Hatch will put us in a good position to keep working during the off-season.
“Thanks to Michael [Meadows] and the team for the opportunity.”
Meadows welcomed Barashi to the team, which also includes Mercedes-AMG F1 junior Daniel Guinchard, Aiden Neate and Adam Fitzgerald, and looks forward to progressing his driver development over the next two weekends.
“Isaac’s performed really well during our testing programme, so the next logical step for him as a driver is to build up some race experience,” explains Meadows.
“In Daniel, Aiden and Adam, he’ll have a strong mix of experience and styles to learn from, and our engineering team will be hard at work to help bring him up to speed as quickly as possible.
“From a team perspective, having four cars out there is also very pleasing. It ends the season on a positive note for us, and should give us plenty of momentum heading into the winter.”
