PREMA Racing announces that Marta Garcia will compete in the 2024 Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine with the team. The 23-year-old Spanish female racer recently secured the inaugural F1 Academy title with a brilliant run that included claiming seven wins and five poles en-route to securing the Driver Championship.
She will now be making a key move for her career with the support of F1 Academy, as it promotes the creation of a progressive pathway for female racers.
Coming from a remarkable karting run that included winning the 2015 CIK-FIA Karting Academy Trophy and Trofeo delle Industrie, Garcia moved to single-seaters in 2016. Earlier this year, she transitioned to F1 Academy to finally make her international breakthrough in the new-for-2023 series.

“We are really happy to continue working with Marta for 2024. We were really impressed by her approach and professionalism, and the progress she made throughout the year showed that she is ready to take the next chapter of her career. This step is also a great testament to the work done by F1 Academy in the development and promotion of young woman talent in motorsport. The Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine is a challenging and competitive championship, but we think that Marta will be up to pace, and we will support her to get there as quickly as possible.”
“So thrilled and excited to be racing in FRECA next year. Coming from F1 Academy, it’s going to be a big step. We know we will have to work a lot with the team to succeed but I’m really determined to do well. I can’t thank F1 Academy enough. It is such a fantastic initiative, and it is the right way to do it, trying to take drivers with the best results to the top level. What an amazing opportunity, I’m looking forward to it and to the work that we have ahead, inside and outside the track.”
