San Diego, CA (August 23, 2018) – Dakota Dickerson Racing announced today the addition of Sabelt America’s support as a new partner for the remainder of 2018 racing season in the F4 US Championship.

The Californian is well aware that none of this can happen without the precious and constant help of many supporters.
The young driver was excited to welcome the new partnership. "I am extremely grateful to have the support of Sabelt America. Racing is all about safety, and Sabelt plays a huge role in safety. They provide top level equipment and excellent customer service. I have never felt this comfortable in racing gear before, and their fully customizable suits are incredibly stylish! We will be fighting hard to give them excellent results in the upcoming races. I can't thank everyone involved enough for making this opportunity turn into a reality."
“We are very pleased to have such a humble, talented driver as a partner” said Sabelt Co-Owner Erik Krammer. “We feel Dakota has a bright future in motorsports and we want to support him in any way we can.”
Dickerson, who is driving for DC Autosport, has had a great start to the season and is aiming to score more podiums and wins in New Jersey, as he stands 1st in the Championship. “The goal is the Championship, and nothing less” says the San Diego native.
