American karting star Hannah Greenemeier is set to graduate open wheels, as she joins Crosslink Kiwi Motorsports for the 2023 F4 US Championship.
American karting star Hannah Greenemeier announced she will step up to her first season of Formula 4 racing in the US Championship, as she joins Crosslink Kiwi Motorsports for the 2023 campaign.
Greenemeier, 20, has been racing since she was 4 and competed in Rotax in Mini, Junior and Senior classes. In 2019, she made it to the finals in the SKUSA SuperNationals and became SKUSA Protour Champion in 2021, one of the greatest achievements in American karting.
Her first taste of single seaters was at the Lucas Oil Racing School, before she was invited as one of the 15 young talents assessed by W Series in its 2022 selections at Inde Motorsports Park. In her first time at the wheel of the US-spec F4 car, Greenemeier collected invaluable experience, before she continued her karting season in KZ.
Towards the end of the season, Greenemeier was invited at the 2022 Mazda Motorsports shootout, which assigns a scholarship for a Mazda MX-5 seat, as she continued to prepare the switch to race cars.
And indeed the announcement of the step up was confirmed, as the young driver will enter her first Formula 4 championship in 2023.
"I’m extremely excited to announce that I will be competing in the 2023 US F4 Championship with Crosslink Kiwi Motorsports", she stated.
"A huge 'Thank you!' to everyone who helped make this possible, especially my parents, Mike Beeny, and Gary and Teena from Kiwi Motorsports."
"I can’t wait to get in the car and start preparing for the first race at NOLA. I’m looking forward to learning a lot this year!"
Greenemeier is so far the only female driver announced on the grid of the upcoming F4 US championship. The series was established in 2016 and has so far hosted 10 female drivers.
Hanna Zellers, Angela Durazo and Sabré Cook joined the series in 2018, followed by part-time campaigns by Zoey Edenholm and Amanda Carter in 2019. Edenholm returned for a one-off in 2021, while Chloe Chambers and Emily Linscott contested the full season.
In 2022, Maite Cáceres and Madison Aust - both also part of the W Series selection tests with Greenemeier - joined the field.
The 2023 season is set to kick-off at NOLA Motorsports Park in March and will again feature six triple-header events across some of the most famous US racing venues.
