Thibaut Courtois launches racing team for Spanish Formula 4

Thibaut Courtois' plans to enter the Formula 4 competition in Spain with his own racing team have taken concrete form. The Belgian Real Madrid goalkeeper confirmed that he will compete in the Spanish championship with his team TC Racing.

Courtois, long-serving goalkeeper for Belgium's national football team the Red Devils, is recovering from an injury and will not race himself. However, he showed his love of motorsport during the coronavirus pandemic, taking part in several virtual races with F1 drivers as his opponents.

As the team's owner, Courtois has teamed up with Roberto Merhi, a Spaniard who raced in Japan's Super GT this year. In 2015, he raced in Formula 1 with the Manor Marussia team. The aim is to find a Belgian and a Spaniard to drive the 160bhp Tatuus-Abarth.

Belgian Amaury Cordeel won the Spanish F4 Championship in 2018. Cordeel is currently racing in Formula 2.
