Thailand’s Shepherd Denies Ghiretti Perfect weekend as Team Malaysia joins the fight!

28.10.2018: Formula 4 South East Asia (F4 SEA) – fueled by Petron – 28th October 2018 Events 5 and 6 of the 2018 F4SEA Championship were held concurrently this weekend at the Buriram International Circuit. Kane Shepherd topped the leader baords

Formula 4 South East Asia (F4 SEA) – fueled by Petron – 28th October 2018 Events 5 and 6 of the 2018 F4SEA Championship were held concurrently this weekend at the Buriram International Circuit.



 Kane Shepherd topped the leader baords in the practice sessions. The only man to break into the 1:43’s Shepherd looked set to win the tour of Thailand, but everything started to go wrong for him in Qualifying where Alessandro Ghiretti stole pole for the first race by 5 hundredths of a second.



•    Events 5 and 6 held together for six race weekend live streamed from the Buriram International Circuit


•    Ghiretti wins five out of six races


•    Thailand’s Shepherd wins the final race of the tour of Thailand, confident for Malaysian finale


•    Alister Yoong finds his pace to challenge Shepherd after battling Antoine Potty for rookie spot


•    Malaysia’s Muizz Musyaffa sets some of the fastest lap of the weekend, looking towards next event championship




It was vive la France yet again this weekend as Alessandro Ghiretti was set on a perfect weekend winning five out of six races before Thailand’s Shepherd denied him the finale of the tour of Thailand, taking home his first win on home soil.



Antoine Potty had a strong weekend in Thailand, consistently fighting Alister Yoong and Muizz Musyaffa for position, but the Belgian driver lost out when team Malaysia found their pace on Sunday.



Alister found his way into second in the final race of the weekend and to the pride of his Malaysian team started to challenge the 2017 rookie champion, Kane Shepherd, for the lead. If it hadn’t of been for a collision that damaged his wing, Yoong might have wound up winning the final race. His team mate Muizz Musyaffa also did Malaysia proud setting the fastest lap in several sessions and finding a way past the unstoppable Ghiretti in the final race.



Luke Thompson continues to improve fighting for a chance to prove himself against Alister Yoong and Antoine Potty while Ryo Komikado took the opportunity to learn from the best this weekend in the hopes of getting back on the podium in Malaysia in 4 weeks’ time for the epic conclusion to the 2018 championship.
