What’s the state of play in both championships?
It’s a three-way showdown in both the Teams’ and Drivers’ championships, after 10 action-packed races so far this season.
Just five points blankets the top three in the Teams’ stakes, with Apex Racing Team only three markers ahead of nearest rivals, Munster Gaming Rugby.
ART’s affiliated Apex Racing Academy squad sits third, and with the highest-placed driver – Luke McKeown – among their ranks.
The 17-year-old finished third, then sixth across the two races at Silverstone last time out. It is a testament to his form in 2022 that that was considered an ‘off night’, and chief rival Josh Lad took full advantage.
The Munster driver conceded some ground in the opening race, finishing fourth, but second in the finale reduced the arrears at the championship summit.
Peter Berryman’s late-season form has propelled him up the ranks, and he sits third as the final driver still in mathematical contention, 17 points behind McKeown.
What’s the All Star Cup?
There’s twice the on-track action this evening, with two additional races featuring a number of content creators and real-world motorsport stars forming the inaugural All Star Cup.
Held between the two F4 races, the All Star Cup will feature a lone qualifying session, followed by two 15-minute races, using the same IR-04 single seater. The grid for race two will feature the top ten drivers reversed from the result of race one.
The drivers with the highest number of points across the two races will be crowned the All Star Cup Champion.
Who’s racing in the All Star Cup?
Real-world competitors include W Series star Alice Powell, Honda BTCC driver Daniel Rowbottom, British GT champions Will Tregurtha and Gus Burton, former BTCC driver Mike Epps, BKC racer Kit Belofsky and Ginetta GT5 ace Harley Haughton.oH
They will be joined by content creators including Sampsoid, Basic Ollie and pattypatt.
