Matias Zagazeta to Contest FIA F3 World Championship for 2024 Season

Infinity Sports Management is pleased to announce Matias Zagazeta’s debut campaign in the 2024 FIA F3 World Championship with Swiss team, Jenzer Motorsport.

The Peruvian racing driver got his first taste of an F3 car during the 2022 post-season test and again at the end of 2023 in Jerez with Jenzer Motorsport. Zagazeta and the Lyss-based outfit then teamed up to compete in the Macau Grand Prix last season.

The 3-time national karting champion has progressed through F4, including the Formula 4 UAE and British F4 Championships. Matias wrapped up his 2021 season as the British F4 Vice-Champion, narrowly missing out on the title.

For 2023, Zagazeta joined the Formula Regional European Championship and participated in the first three rounds of the Formula Regional Middle East Championship.

Reflecting on his time so far with Jenzer Motorsport and looking ahead to the upcoming 2024 season, Matias said, “I’m delighted to confirm that I will be driving for Jenzer Motorsport for the 2024 FIA F3 season, it is an incredible opportunity for me and I can’t thank Jenzer enough for this opportunity and to my sponsors for making this possible.

“Working already with the team during testing and the Macau Grand Prix helped us understand the position we are in and get to know the team. I am excited to see what next year will bring and we will work hard to achieve some memorable results together”

Struan Moore, of Infinity Sports Management, commented, “We’re very pleased to announce that Matias will be competing in his debut year of the FIA F3 World Championship with Jenzer.

“Competing at this level is certainly a milestone achieved for any young driver. We’re all excited to see Matias on the grid and pushing for strong results in his rookie season.”

Matias’ 2024 season will get underway on February 29th in Sakhir, Bahrain. The FIA F3 World Championship will visit Melbourne, Imola, Monaco, and Zagazeta’s place of residence, Barcelona, halfway through the season. The second leg of the season will be hosted at Spielberg, Silverstone, Budapest, Spa-Francorchamps, and Monza.
