SMP F4 NEZ Championship continues its Eastern tour next weekend in Russia. Swedish Isac Blomqvist is leading the Championship after the first round followed by Russian Ivan Berets on second place.

The second race of the SMP F4 NEZ Championship season will take us to in Nižni Novgorod located around 500 kilometers East of Moscow. Round two of the Championship will be driven on the 3222-meter-long Nring Circuit. Nring is a newcomer in SMP F4 NEZ Championship which means none of the drivers have driven formula 4 cars on the track.

Nižni Novgorod race weekend includes two qualifying sessions and three races. The weekend begins with free practice sessions on Friday and continues on with first qualifying session and two races on Saturday. Clocks are set again on Sunday morning with the second qualifying session followed by the final race in the afternoon.

The conditions this weekend will be similar to round one in Smolensk as the temperature will vary between 15-20 degrees. No rain is predicted for Nring during the weekend, so the drivers get to race on dry track.

Swede in the lead

After round one in Smolensk Circuit Swedish Isac Blomqvist is leading the Championship with 50 points. Russian Ivan Berets is right on Blomqvist’s tail with only 7 points behind. Konsta Lappalainen from Finland is currently third in the Championship with 5 points behind Berets and 12 points from the leader. It is to be seen if the second race weekend will generate more differences between the drivers or tighten the battle even further.

First qualifying will be on Saturday at 9.30 followed by race 1 at 13.45 and race 2 at 16.05. Second qualifying of the weekend will be on Sunday at 9.25 and race 3 on 13.45.
