Jordan Love (AUS, Car #79), Pole position, Winner Race 2 / Winner


Race 3 / Winner Race 4 “Race 2
was a really interesting race! I had a good start though I did come under a little bit of pressure with Danial (Frost) behind me but I just wanted to run my own race and focus on putting together consistent laps. It was a bit tough as the track was still damp and we were on slicks, which meant I had to really focus.



“That was a fun Race 3! I had an OK start from P5 as the grid was reversed for this race. The plan was to try and keep as close as possible to the leaders, but then some of the drivers hit a wet patch on Turns 5 and 6, which did hurt us a bit.



After that point though, I just focused and had to work really hard to make up ground. With five laps to go, I was able to close in on the guys in front of me and moved up to P2. After that it was a matter of chasing Akash (Gowda) before managing to overtake him. I’m really pleased with this!



“Our focus for Race 4 was more about pushing as hard as I could right from the start, knowing that the next race would be determined from the fastest lap from this race. So I just kept my focus and pushed hard in the first three or four laps and keeping it consistent throughout.


“Really happy to come away from today with a clean sweep, to add to the race I won yesterday. It was a good race with Danial challenging me from the start in Race 5, but then I think he made a mistake, which gave me the chance to just focus on keeping the pace consistent through to finish.”





Danial Frost (SIN, Car #66), P2 Race 2 / P3 Race 4
“Truthfully, I am quite happy with second position today as I had a really good start off the line and managed to over a few cars.



 I even had the pace to almost challenge Jordan (Love) but he was quick! I did manage to pick the pace up towards the end of the race, and that is encouraging, as I know that I have the pace to match and catch Jordan.


“I had a really good start in Race 4 and managed to gain a position. But after that, I had a really tough fight with Presley (Martono), who pushed me throughout. I tried to defend the position, but he managed to overtake me on lap 4. I need to definitely work for the next race!”






Akash Gowda (IND, Car #33), P3 Race 2 / P2 Race 3
“I had a really bad start and really lost quite a bit of ground. Despite that, I was able to settle into the pace, managed to adapt and stayed with Faine (Kahia).



After that my focus was to stay as consistent as possible with my pace. Towards the end, I saw Faine had troubles with his car and I was able to pass to take third place. I am happy with this result but know that there is a still a lot of ground for me to make up.


“I had a really good start in Race 3 and was able to move up to P2 into the first corner. On Turn 5 I managed to overtake Presley (Martono) for the lead and just worked on pulling out as much of a gap as I could.



But with five laps to go, I could see Jordan (Love) was already closing in on me and on the final lap, he managed to get past me. It could have been better but I will take this result.”






Presley Martono (INA, Car #32), P4 Race 2, Rookie Winner / P2 Race


4, Rookie Winner / P3 Race 5, Rookie Winner
“That was a bad first lap for me as I made a mistake, this after an OK start. I spun out and dropped back and had it all to do to get back up and catch the guys ahead of me. I know I have the pace, so now I’ll focus on the next race.


“Race 3 was a more difficult one for me, though I am quite pleased with another podium finish, of course. I did manage to take the lead but unfortunately could not hold on to it and Akash was able to get past me. Then I made a mistake and fell backwards and had it all to do. After a while, I shifted the strategy and focused on trying to regain as many positions as possible.


“I did not manage to have a good start for Race 4 and lost a position to Danial, who was much quicker off the line. After that, my focus was on making sure that first, I stayed close and then push as hard as I could to try and overtake him. He defended really well, but I finally managed to overtake Danial on the main straight.


“I am really happy to finish on the podium, especially after the tough fight with Akash (Gowda) in Race 5. My strategy was to defend as best as I could and still keep it on the limit. And, I did enough to hold on to P3.”






Faine Kahia (NZL, Car #55), P2 Race 5 “
I am absolutely thrilled to be up here on the podium after what has been an incredibly difficult weekend for me.


We had to do a lot of work to get to this point. It was hard in that respect and also hard in the race, as I really had to push hard from the back. In some ways I am really relieved and exhausted! I am really happy with the end result.”



The final day on Saturday will see the sixth and final scheduled race in the morning with another Star Driver award trophy up for grabs for the most successful driver from the weekend.



With the overall event champion scored on a reverse to the F4/SEA championship points, drivers aim to score the lowest points to be in the running for the coveted trophy on following the race.
