The all-Australian combination of Jack Beeton and AGI Sport, 2023’s Formula 4 South East Asia champions, head to Abu Dhabi this weekend to race in Formula 4 United Arab Emirates.
The F4 SEA season lasted little longer than a month and began last October at Chinese track Zhuzhou. Beeton set the pace in the first qualifying session by a huge 2.473 seconds, and he converted that into victory in a wet opening race. A collision meant he retired from the reversed-grid race two, but he bounced for another lights-to-flag win in race three by 16.818s.
He finished fifth and fourth in the two non-championship races in Macau, then three podiums across the remaining two rounds at Sepang meant he comfortably won the title.
Beeton joined Nicolas Todt’s All Road Management stable at the start of 2023, and came 23rd in F4 UAE with the Pinnacle VAR team. Following that he drove for Van Amersfoort Racing in Europe, coming 15th in Euro 4 and 23rd in Italian F4.
AGI Sport has recently been testing with three cars in the UAE, but is yet to confirm if Beeton will have any full-time team-mates in the country’s F4 championship.
Pinnacle will be competing in F4 UAE this year indpendently of VAR, and has signed Kai Daryanani and Yuhao Fu.
Daryanani came 18th in GB4 with one win, 24th in British F4, 27th in Euro 4 and 36th in F4 UAE last year, while Fu took part in a post-season British F4 test last year then joined Pinnacle for F4 SEA’s two Sepang rounds and scored points twice.
