BURIRAM (11 June 2019) – It will be a no-holds-barred battle for supremacy when Round 4 of the Formula 4 SEA Championship – fueled by Petron – resumes here at the Buriram International Circuit on Friday. After three highly competitive rounds over the last two months, the drivers are primed for an even stronger performance this weekend.
As the drivers become more accustomed to their fine-tuned machines and fired up by the hunt for precious championship points, the competition has become even more intense. This was evident in the four action-packed races staged at this very circuit a month ago where drivers battled furiously in their quest to claim victory.
“The rising confidence level of the drivers, after competing in three rounds and 12 races, will lead to even closer racing. These young drivers, as their skills improve with each race, will have to work extra hard if they hope to get to the podium,” said Formula 4 SEA promoter, Peter Thompson, today. “The good news for fans is that they will be able to catch all the action as races will be streamed live.”
The leading drivers so far this season include Irish ace Lucca Allen and Shihab Al Habsi, who both won two races each here last month. Other drivers who have claimed victories are Hadrian David (France), Emil Skaras (Sweden), Elias Seppanen (Finland) and Josh Smith (Australia).
This year’s FIA F4 SEA Championship is a world-record-breaking season featuring 40 races, starting from Round 1 in Sepang and finishing in Clark, Philippines in November. For the record, each round features a total of four races contested over a weekend. The organisers have also worked with international channels to broadcast the Championship.
