Based: Banbury, Oxfordshire
Team Principal: Michael Meadows
One of the newest names in British motorsport, Argenti Motorsport joined the British Formula 4 field at the start of 2020. Founded by two-time Porsche Carrera Cup GB champion Michael Meadows, the team benefits from the experience of being run by a former driver who has a pedigree in competing in various national and international categories.
With a karting team run out of the same stable, Argenti is one of the few entities in the UK that offers a seamless link for drivers switching to cars for the first time. As the first recognised step on the FIA’s single-seater pathway to Formula 1, forging a link to F4 from their karting setup, ensures Argenti drivers enjoy a solid foundation as they make the progression in their aspiring racing careers.
At the beginning of 2020, Argenti took over cars from the outgoing Double R Racing team and ran Casper Stevenson who finished third overall in the drivers’ championship. He took two wins in Argenti’s first F4 season, sealing victories at both Silverstone and Croft.
For 2021, the team entered four cars under the Phinsys by Argenti banner and challenged for championship honours with Peru racer Matias Zagazeta – the 18-year-old taking four wins across the course of the year and finishing runner-up to eventual champion Matthew Rees.
Argenti are based in Edgehill, a stone’s throw from the famous Shenington kart circuit and just a few miles outside the Oxfordshire town of Banbury. With over 25 podiums in their first two years in British F4, Argenti Motorsport have quickly proved they are one of the championship’s top outfits.
