Stage set for thrilling finale to debut season of F3 Asian Championship Certified by FIA

•Raoul Hyman leads drivers’ title charge with Dragon HitechGP


•Four drivers in championship contention ahead of season-ending triple header


•18-strong field prepares for series’ first night race at Malaysian F1 track





Briton Raoul Hyman leads a three-car Dragon HitechGP entry as the F3 Asian Championship Certified by FIA heads to Malaysia’s F1 Sepang International Circuit for a triple-header that will close out its sensational debut season.



Drivers’ championship points leader Jake Hughes will be absent from Sepang due to a date conflict with his GP3 campaign, setting the stage for an epic showdown for the inaugural honours between his team mates Hyman and Macau’s Charles Leong – fresh from his debut in the FIA F3 World Cup at the Macau Grand Prix last weekend – who lies fourth overall, and Absolute Racing’s Jaden Conwright of the USA (third) and Malaysian Akash Nandy (fifth).




Seventy-three points separate the four championship contenders, with the three Sepang races offering a total of 75.




Several new faces join the championship for the first time for the season finale. Briton Harrison Scott joins Hyman and Leong at Dragon HitechGP, the 2017 Euro Formula Open Champion and current Pro Mazda Championship driver bringing yet more single seater experience to the squad. Pinnacle Motorsport enters 16-year-old New Zealand driver Liam Lawson, the German Formula 4 championship runner-up this season.



Joining Nandy and Conwright on the Absolute Racing line-up is French-based Chinese driver Ye Yifei. A former Chinese junior karting champion, Ye won the French F4 championship in 2016, and has contested the Formula Renault Eurocup for the last two seasons.




BlackArts Racing introduces 19-year-old Czech driver Tom Beckhäuser. Beckhäuser began his racing career just two years ago and has contested Formula 4 in Germany, Italy and the UAE, where he finished third in the championship. He will benefit from the experience of BlackArts Racing’s Louis Prette who has contested all twelve rounds of the championship so far, while Masters driver Thomas Luedi completes the three-car line-up.



Super License star Tomoki Takahashi, who has taken three podiums so far this season, is back with Masters class team mate Takashi Hata, currently third on that leaderboard. Kenyan talent Jeremy Wahome will be back with the series for its finale with SVC Asia, as will India’s Akash Gowda of M-Sport Asia.




The championship’s first Masters champion, Yin Hai Tao of China returns with ZEN Motorsport to complete his season alongside fellow countryman Yu Kuai. DRAGON, another driver who contested the 2018 FIA F3 World Cup in Macau at the weekend, is back with the championship with his B-Max Racing Team along with Tairoku Yamaguchi who is also entered in the Masters class.

 

The season-closer to the 2018 season begins on Friday, November 23, with two qualifying sessions, with Race 13 starting under lights at 19:15 local time. Race 14 follows on Saturday morning at 10:35, with the final race of the year starting at 12:45 on Sunday. Races 14 and 15 will be live streamed via www.f3asia.com and on Facebook.
