Gabriel Stilp and Deagen Fairclough confirmed for the F4 UAE Championship
Hitech Pulse-Eight have confirmed their final two drivers, Gabriel Stilp and Deagen Fairclough, for the forthcoming F4 UAE Championship. The 2024 season kicks back into action this week at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit.
Stilp rejoins Hitech having competed with the team in British F4 last year, scoring one win and two podiums in his maiden season. Fairclough finished third in the 2023 British F4 Championship, earning his opportunity on the grid at the inaugural ROKiT Racing Stars final shoot-out the previous year.
The duo will join Reza Seewooruthun and Sebastian Murray in the highly-anticipated UAE-based series with pre-season testing scheduled to take place this Wednesday and Thursday, before the season opener gets underway on Friday through to Sunday.
The opening two rounds will take place at Yas Marina Circuit before the series heads to Dubai for round three. The team will then head back to Abu Dhabi for round four before closing off the season at Dubai Autodrome on 16-18 February.
Each round consists of two one-hour pre-event testing sessions, 30 minute free practice sessions, two 15-minute qualifying sessions, and three 28-minute (plus 1 lap) races.
The F4 UAE Championship sessions will be streamed live on the series’ YouTube and Facebook pages.
