Miranda, Roberts, Dunne lead respective FIA F4 Esports Regional Tour series after first week

This September, the FIA F4 Esports Global Championship Series arrives with 30 of the top-ranked regional competitors going against one another for a four-event, eight round season with a chance at winning a share of the $25,000 prize pool.

The first week for qualifying kicked off with the start of 2024 Season 3, where each respective region competed at a venue within their area. The Americas region battled it out all week at Road America, while Asia-Pacific competitors took on Suzuka and Europe clashed at Silverstone.

2,167 iRacers registered for at least one event at Road America last week, and it was Brazil’s Victor Miranda scoring the most points and a win for the Americas region. Five Brazilians currently reside in the top 10, while the other five include two members from Ohio, one from California, one from Illinois, and one racer from Hispanoamérica in 10th.

Seven Japanese iRacers currently sit inside the top 10, but three of the top 5, including the top two drivers Benjamin Roberts and Marcello Rivera, race from the Australia/NZ club. Many of these drivers raced multiple times and some scored multiple victories.

Last, but not least, the European region saw 1,712 members compete at Silverstone Circuit last week, but the top is packed with some well-known names. Alex Dunne leads the way, but only just slightly over Gordon Mutch. Five members of the “UK and I” club reside in the top 10, and based on some of the talent within this list, some of the favorites for the Global title might already be in good position.
