Irish driver Lucca Allen, fresh from a blistering performance in Sepang in the previous round, will be aiming to extend his winning ways in Round 3 of the FIA Formula 4 SEA Championship – fuelled by Petron – which starts here this weekend.

With two wins in the Round 2 in Sepang, Allen’s rivals will be extremely wary of the youngster at the Buriram Circuit where four more races will be contested. “Sepang was really a good outing … good results for me. Achieved our goals and I’m definitely thrilled and happy heading off to Thailand with two wins and three podium finishes under my belt,” said Allen.

The battle for dominance in Buriram will see Allen squaring off with the likes of Finnish driver Elias Seppanen and Josh Smith. Seppanen and Smith were also winners, claiming one victory each, in the previous round.  

“I feel I can do better in Thailand although racing in Southeast Asia can be really challenging due the hot weather, especially coming from the current snowy conditions back home,” said Seppanen in Sepang.

Following the two opening rounds in Sepang, drivers head to Thailand for round 3 and Round 4.  

Malaysians Muizz Musyaffa and Alister Yoong, along with Danish Malthe Jakobsen, who clinched two podium finishes in Sepang, are also likely to be among the front-runners in Buriram.

Meanwhile, Lyubov Ozeretkovskaya, who is among several ladies competing in the championship this season, is determined to deliver good results in Buriram after what she described as a tough round in Sepang. The other ladies in the championship are Mira Erda and Sneha Sharma, both of India.

This year’s FIA FA SEA Championship is a word record-breaking season featuring 40 races starting from Round 1 in Sepang and finishing off in Clark Philippines in November.
