Launched in February 2016 by Mohammed ben Sulayem and immediately certified by the FIA, the UAE Formula 4 Championship is a unique opportunity for local and foreign drivers to compete over the winter in a condensed, cost-effective format.
The international appeal of the UAE has contributed greatly to the steady growth of its motorsport facilities which have become the venues for an increasing number of international events over recent years.
In a still-developing market with bigger competition but with great new opportunities ahead, the F4 UAE deserves to be given a fresh and professional boost in order to not only keeps its important position as the first step on the single seater driver development ladder, but to also become one of the reference F4 championships while promoting local talents internationally. .
As the newly-appointed promoter of the F4 UAE, Top Speed will work on developing a bigger and more attractive single seater ecosystem in the region and bring the F4 UAE to a new FIA Grade 1 venue for the coming season. We look forward to welcoming you to the Middle East!
