It has been an action-packed season so far but the best is yet to come as the FIA Formula 4 SEA (F4 SEA) Championship fueled by Petron will conclude with a grand finale, featuring the last two rounds at the Sepang Circuit, in November and December.
Event 9 and Event 10, with four races each on Nov 22-24 and Dec 13-15, will bring the curtains down on a world-record-breaking season of 40 races. No other F4 Championship to date has featured as many races in a single season.
Even more thrilling is that the remaining rounds will be staged as support races for the Sepang 1000KM 2019, FIA World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) and the FIM Endurance World Championship (FIM EWC).
“When we announced the 40-race schedule at the beginning of the season, we realised it would be competitive and challenging for the young drivers. But for them to develop into top class drivers, it was necessary for them to race regularly, and at a highly competitive level. After 32 races, it is clear this objective has been achieved. The racing has been of a very high quality with every race closely contested,” Formula 4 SEA promoter, Peter Thompson, commented today.
Racing fans, who have followed the season on live stream, are eager to catch the final two rounds to find out who will be crowned the new F4 SEA champion this year. With eight wins in the bag, expect leading contenders like Elias Seppanen of Finland as well as Australian Josh Smith, Lucca Allen of Ireland, Hadrian David of France and Omani Shihab Al-Habshi to lock horns yet again on the world-class 5.543km Sepang Circuit.
For the Malaysian fans, much is expected from local boy Muizz Musyaffa following his tremendous run in Event 8 where he sensationally won one race, along with multiple podium finishes. Muizz, currently undergoing his SPM examination, will likely be among the primary contenders for the top spots in both events.
“With the coveted F4 SEA championship title at stake, the competition among these future racing stars will be intense in the final two rounds. I am certain we will witness some of the best racing of the season in Sepang,” Thompson said. It will be a grand finale indeed.
