SEPANG: Ireland’s Lucca Allen launched a stunning comeback to seal his third win of the week in Race 3 of the FIA Formula 4 SEA Championship – fueled by Petron – at the Sepang International Circuit today.

Allen, winner of Race 1 yesterday and Race 2 earlier this morning, worked his way from the back row to eventually claim the top spot today. 

Another Irish driver, Luke Thompson led for several laps from the start but Allen picked up the pace and slipped past Thompson on lap sixth of the nine-lap race.

Thompson settled for second, just over two seconds behind, with Elias Seppanen from Finland finishing third. 

Race 4 is scheduled to start at 3pm today.
