FIA Formula 4 South East Asia (F4 SEA) – fueled by Petron – is scheduled to hold its first double-header at Sepang between 7th to 8th and 13th to 15th of July. The premier junior driver development championship has changed its calendar format for 2018, in an effort to make the series more cost-effective and we are about to find out what two back-to-back weekends of Formula racing look like!
In the second outing of the season, the F4 SEA hopefuls will race at the prestigious Malaysian Championship Series (MCS) before throngs of local fans, and – for the first time – alongside their peers in Formula 3 Asia. F4 is merely a launching pad to the highest echelons of motorsport, with F3 being the next rung of the ladder on the pyramid to F1. Supporting F3 will give further motivation and recognition to our F4 SEA drivers, with opportunities to mingle with and display their talents to those they aspire to follow.
“The all-new 2018 format consists of four double-header events and a total of 24 races. We couldn’t be happier to be out here in Sepang supporting the Malaysian Championship Series (MCS) and racing alongside F3. This allows our drivers a peek at what the future holds for them,” explained F4 SEA Promoter Peter Thompson.
As touched on by Thompson, the 2018 season has been revamped in order to be more in line with European Formula 4 Championships, with just three races per event as opposed to the challenging six-race format employed previously. The Championship will also be adding a brand new country and circuit to the roster, with two events at The Madras Motor Race Track, Chennai, India in September.
The opening round of the 2018 F4 SEA Championship is set to welcome the return of drivers such as Muizz Musyaffa, Kane Shepherd, Alessandro Ghiretti and a host of new rookies keen to get their start in Asia’s premier driver development championship.
