SMP F4 NEZ Championship is rolling into its second to last race weekend of the season. Battle for the top is tight as the Championship continues in Finland.

The sixth round of the series will be driven in Finland at Alastaro Circuit. The track is located in Loimaa, 180 kilometers northwest from Helsinki. This summer Alastaro has had a brand new asphalt coating throughout the 3000 meter long track. Many lap records have been reset this summer on the new tarmac, so we can expect lap records to be broken next weekend as well.

F4 NEZ Championship battle is flaming before the sixth round with Finnish Konsta Lappalainen leading by 33 points to Russian Michael Belov. Swedish Isac Blomqvist isn’t out of the Championship game either with 64 points difference to Lappalainen. The entry list for Alastaro race weekend has 13 names in it with all the top drivers joining the game. The Championship is getting new Finnish forces for this season from Mi Maijala and Jimi Hannus.

The first F4 NEZ qualifying will be driven on Saturday at 10.15 am followed by the first race of the weekend at 1.30 pm. The second race will be driven on Saturday at 4.45 pm. The clocks will be set for the second qualifying on Sunday at 10.00 am. The final race of the weekend will start at 12.30 pm. The event next weekend is also a season finale to the Finnish Road Course Championship, Rata-SM.
