Silverstone showdown next for ROKiT British F4 Esports stars
Apex Racing Academy retain the upper hand in the ROKiT British F4 Esports Championship as the series heads to a virtual Silverstone tonight (25 November) for the first of two meetings to decide both titles.
Luke McKeown and Stanley Deslandes’ combined efforts put the Academy squad two points clear of Apex Racing Team at the top of the headlining Teams’ Championship. Munster Gaming Rugby sit third, a further 13 points back, and look to be the only squad in with a chance of denying an Apex-supported team the honours.
With three victories from eight races, McKeown also leads the way in the Drivers’ stakes, with a more comfortable, 16-point buffer back to second-placed Josh Lad, leading the line for Munster.
The Williams Esports star endured an ‘off night’ at Snetterton last time out, and in his absence at the front, victory for McKeown, plus a 1-2 finish for ART’s Jamie Fluke and Peter Berryman, have put Lad in a precarious position.
Seemingly out of the title race just a couple of races ago, a resurgence from the ART pair has moved Fluke into third outright, 14 points back from Lad, with Berryman in close company. Another repeat showing at the ‘Home of British Motorsport’ tonight, and they could yet make a late break for the coveted crown. Deslandes rounds out the top five.
Action from Silverstone will be live on RaceSpot TV‘s YouTube channel from 19:00 (GMT) tonight, with the usual bill of two 30-minute contests around the National circuit.
