Less than a week ago the third round of SMP F4 NEZ Championship was driven at Moscow Raceway, Russia. The fourth round is right around the corner as the series moves 145 kilometers east to ADM Raceway this weekend.

Located 40 kilometers outside Moscow city center ADM Raceway is a newcomer to SMP F4 NEZ Championship series and built in 2001 it is one of the newest tracks of the season. The track is 3275 meters long and has long straights and tight corners bringing challenge for the drivers.

The SMP F4 NEZ season is closing its halfway as three of the seven race weekends are driven. Championship standings are in an exciting state; Swedish Isac Blomqvist is leading the Championship with 128 points, but after a good weekend at Moscow Raceway Finnish Konsta Lappalainen is lurking close behind with only ten points to Blomqvist. Russian Michael Belov is chasing Lappalainen from the third position with 100 points. Russian Ivan Berets is only two points behind Belov as fourth. With close differences the top positions can still change one way or the other as four races are still to go.

In total of 13 drivers are competing for the top positions at ADM Raceway including two Finnish visitors Markus Laitala and Tuomas Haapalainen. Both participated last weekend as well with Haapalainen scoring second position on Sunday, so the Finnish duo is also a force to be reckoned with.

The ADM Raceway weekend will begin with a two-day testing on Wednesday and Thursday. Free practices are driven on Friday. First qualifying of the weekend will be driven on Saturday morning at 9 am. First race will start at 1 pm and the second at 4 pm. The second qualifying will take place on Sunday morning at 9.30 am followed by the third and final race of the weekend at 12 pm.
