FIA F4 Esports Regional Tour Week 3 report: Miranda, Deith, Mutch lead respective regions

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.

Last week, the Regional Tours all entered Week #3 of competition with racing in Canada at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in the Americas, the Short layout of Okayama International Circuit for the Asia-Pacific group, and Circuit Zandvoort for Europe. 

AMERICAS REGION

Michael Janney once again found himself near the top after missing out on the first week of competition, but this time behind another new name on these sheets – Elvis Rankin in second. At the very top, winning the Strength of Field (SoF) race, scoring the most points with 355, was Nicolás Rubilar. Victor Miranda continues to lead the way in the overall after finishing fourth in the week, with Felipe Juliato rounding out the top-five. James R Burns, who finished seventh in the week, moves into the top-10 as Matt Bussa, likely busy over the week with Chicago Street Course prep, falls out, down to 12th. 1076 iRacers participated at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Week 3.
