Berg has a seat at the Racing Line Group for the British 2024 F4 Championship. The racing team is supported by BBC Chartering Singapore, FLS Projects Asia, Transcar Projects UK, OXBO Mega Transport, and Rohde & Liesenfeld (Roli Projects). Further sponsors are welcome.

The ROKiT British 2024 F4 Championship takes place at nine UK venues and one Dutch circuit between April 27 and October 26. Launched in 2014, the FIA Formula Four competition was created to offer young racers their first steps into single seater racing. Since its introduction, three former racers have made it into Formula 1 and it is widely regarded as being the most competitive junior single-seater championship in the world. The competition will see Berg debut the project logistics branded race car, which will also be on show the Breakbulk Europe exhibition in Rotterdam from May 21-23.

Jan-Ludwig Beringer, president and chief executive of Roli Projects, said: “All of us in the global shipping sector attend Formula 1 with our customers, agents and suppliers, and this initiative to sponsor Alex now in 2024 takes the action from our corporate box seats directly onto the track.

“This initiative is a huge boost to help get Alex’s amazing driving abilities onto the stage of the British F4 series and give him a chance to get the attention of a Formula 1 team. Our goal is to inspire young people in the global shipping sector to drive for success and leadership.”

The FIA Formula 4 competition kicks off at Donnington Park on April 27-28, followed by Brands Hatch (May 11-12), Snetterton (May 25-26), Thruxton (June 8-9), Silverstone (June 15-16), Zandvoort Racing Park in the Netherlands (July 13-14), Knockhill August 10-11, Donnington Park August 24-25), Silverstone (September 21-22) and Brands Hatch (October 5-6).

In December 2023, Berg was one of just two recipients of the 2023 Team Canada Scholarship, aimed at giving people their first break in competitive racing. It allowed Berg to represent his country at the Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch and the Walter Hayes Trophy Race in Silverstone in the UK during October and November.
