Goblin EV is proud to announce sponsorship of James Higgins – British F4 racing driver

April 21, 2023

The ROKiT F4 British Championship certified by FIA blasts into life this coming weekend (22/23 April) at Donington Park and we are excited to announce that Goblin EV will be supporting teenage driver, James Higgins, as his first full F4 campaign gets underway. 

After making his debut in the single-seater series towards the end of last year with leading outfit Fortec Motorsport, the 16-year-old has extended his ties with the championship-winning squad for 2023.

Boasting an impressive racing CV which includes success in karting and the Ginetta Junior Championship, Higgins made his F4 bow at Silverstone and Brands Hatch last year and is now, with the benefit of a full winter testing programme under his belt, and support from both ourselves and United Rental Systems, setting his sights on becoming a regular front-runner in the championship that is widely regarded as being the first step on the road to Formula 1.

Here at Goblin EV we are proud to be supporting him throughout the series and are looking forward to seeing James (and our shiny, new logo) speed around the track and, hopefully, celebrate on the podium afterwards. 

“I’m feeling really excited to finally be kicking off the season at Donington Park this weekend,” Higgins told the Goblin EV team. “This year’s grid looks to be as competitive as ever and I’m sure that’s only going to make for some great racing!”

As Higgins launches into his first full FIA F4 series, we here at Goblin EV HQ are also celebrating a launch of our own: our compact and stylish 13 amp 3Kw Portable Car Charger and 3.6kW, 7.2kW & 22kW EV car charging cables are all now on sale and available to buy in the UK.

So as we continue to supercharge the future of travel in the UK, we would like to wish James all the best on his mission to race his way into the Formula 1 career of his dreams.
