Although F4 SEA has yet to publish an official entry-list, we expect to see drivers from all around Asia to fly in for the weekend. Names to watch out for include Daniel Cao from China and Nazim Azman from Malaysia who shined during the season opener at the Malaysian F1 Grand Prix. We’ve also confirmed that brothers Ben and Sam Grimes will join the grid and race the Philippine flag, so don’t forget to cheer for them.
Ben tested in F4 SEA last year, campaigned a full season in the 2017 Formula Masters Series with Pinnacle Motorsport, and should be right up there with the leaders.
Sponsored by Petron Corporation, the Formula 4 SEA runs on Petron Blaze 100 Euro 6 fuel and Petron Blaze Racing engine oil.
To watch the race live, entrance to the Clark International Speedway is free on Saturday and P60 / person on Sunday. Those with vehicles must pay P200 for parking.
