British F4 champions to receive prize Formula Renault Eurocup test

  • Series partner Hankook offer free Eurocup test to reigning British F4 champion Kiern Jewiss and his successor for 2019.
  • Both drivers guaranteed 250km of running in Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi on 27-28 October.

The F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost is delighted to announce reigning champion Kiern Jewiss and his successor will be offered a complimentary test in a Formula Renault Eurocup car on 27-28 October in Abu Dhabi.

The prize comes courtesy of series partners Hankook, who also act as the official tyre supplier to both championships, and will guarantee both drivers a minimum of 250 kilometres of running in the F3-spec machine, launched last season as a replacement for its popular 2.0-litre predecessor.

The scene for both tests will be the 3.4-mile Yas Marina Circuit, renowned worldwide for hosting the traditionally season-ending Formula 1® Abu Dhabi Grand Prix since 2009.

Even more special for one of the pair will be the chance to test the circuit under floodlights, with the other set to complete their running during daylight hours the previous day.

Jewiss crowned FIA British F4 champion last season with six victories and a further twelve podiums to his name.

The race to be his successor is currently lead by fellow BRDC Rising Star Zane Maloney, the Bajan racer currently 37 points ahead of Sebastian Alvarez as the title race heads into the final nine rounds of the season.

“We’re very grateful to our partners and official tyre supplier, Hankook, for their part in putting this reward together,” said Championship Promoter, Sam Roach.

“Providing a platform for the next generation of rising stars to develop and showcase their talent is what the F4 British Championship is all about, so I’m delighted we can again offer a chance to our current and next champion to keep the momentum going after their success in the UK.

“The FR19 is a fantastic car, well-suited to the transition from F4 to F3, and the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi provides a superb backdrop for these drivers as they continue their journey up the FIA’s Global Pathway.”
