The support bill of a Formula 1 grand prix will feature the FIA's Formula 4 concept for the first time this weekend as a new Mexican series is introduced.
An exhibition race for Mexican F4 will be held on the revamped Mexico City circuit on Sunday morning ahead of country's first grand prix since 1992.
A full 2015-16 season will then begin at the Puebla circuit on November 28-29.
Officially named the F4 NACAM Championship after the body of FIA members in North America and Central America, it will use the same combination of Mygale chassis and Ford engine as its British equivalent MSA Formula, but run on Pirelli tyres.
Ferrari F1 reserve driver Esteban Gutierrez lends his initials and acts as advisor to the MartigaEG team, headed up by former Champ Car and A1 Grand Prix racer David Martinez.
Mario Dominguez, another ex-Champ Car driver, will be involved in the championship as a coach.
A spokesperson for the series told Autosport that 20 cars are registered to take part.
One of the drivers expected to compete in Mexico City is Fernando Urrutia, a regular in Britain's BRDC F4 series in 2015.
FIA F4 championships have run in Britain, Germany, Italy, Northern Europe, Australia, Japan and China this year, while others have recently been announced in the United States, Benelux and Spain for 2016.
