13-year old Juju Noda will join Danish F4
Japanese driver Juju Noda will join the Danish F4 next year. She will turn 14 in February and hit the age limit to be old enough to drive in the junior class of formula sport next year.
Juju Noda is the daughter of former Formula 1 and IndyCar driver Hideki Noda and a star in Japan. At the age of 9 she drove a F4-car for the very first time, just a year later she took the lap record for a F4-car for Okayama in the under 17 years old class. And that lap was just 0,7 seconds slower than the pole position time in the national F4 race the same year.
At the age of 3 she sat in a kart the first time and with 4 years she won at her debut. One year later she became champion in the classes 30cc and 40cc. At the age of nine she got the chance to test a formula 4 car and she did it. And the journey isn´t over yet - at the age of 11 she drove a formula 3 car for the first time on the Okayama Circuit.
Juju is not just focused on the racetrack, off-track she works in the simulator and with all the data she and her team has. She is student at her father´s NODA Racing Academy. Her biggest dream? To win a formula 1 race!
Her way is a long one, but with her talent and some sponsors on her site she could go her way to F1. The first step is her participation in the Danish F4 2020, one of few series where the age limit is just 14 and we will see where her way will lead her.
