Georg Kelstrup latest addition to MP Motorsport line-up in Spanish F4
Young Danish ace Georg Askegaard Kelstrup is MP Motorsport’s latest addition to a talented line-up for the 2021 Spanish Formula 4 Championship. Kelstrup joins MP for his first season in motor racing.
Kelstrup got acquainted with F4 and MP Motorsport during last week’s two-day test at Barcelona, and jumped on the opportunity to sign for the team. He joins Suleiman Zanfari, Rik Koen, Gil Molina, Dilano van ’t Hoff, Manuel Espírito Santo, Santi Trisini and his countryman Noah Degnbol Møller, all of whom were previously announced for a 2021 Spanish F4 season with MP Motorsport. Kelstrup is supported by the Danish federation and has been invited to join Team Denmark for the 2021 season.
“I’m so happy to join MP Motorsport and race in the Spanish Championship this year”, said Kelstrup. “I’ve heard many good things about the team and the way they develop their drivers. I am very happy with my engineer and after the first test at Barcelona I’ve already learned a lot. The team made me feel very welcome, and as for good competition in F4 – it looks like I got all that I wished for! As a rookie, it’s going to be tough, and I know it takes a lot of hard work, a bit of luck and helpful sponsors to get there. But I’ll do my best to make it count.”
“I’m very pleased to welcome Georg in our Spanish F4 team”, said Sander Dorsman, MP Motorsport’s team manager. “Progressing from karts, Georg will surely be able to adapt well to his new single-seater environment. He’s got plenty of talent and a great work ethic, and both will serve him well in his debut season in cars.”
Kelstrup moves up into single-seaters after several years of fierce competition in the WSK championships for OK karts, including the WSK Super Master Series, WSK Open Cup and WSK Euro Series, while also claiming podium positions in the German Karting Championship. Before moving up to the international karting scene, the Dane raced competitively in the Swedish Karting Championship.
