Alibhai keen to close British F4 season off in style
South African race driver Aqil Alibhai heads to the penultimate round of the FIA British F4 championship intent to close his 2024 season off in style at the Donington Park Grand Prix Circuit 26-27 August. Alibhai has impressed greatly in his first season of single season racing that has included a race win and a second position so far aboard is Virtuosi Racing Taatus.
“That’s seven rounds down, and two to go, so let’s make these last six heats count,” Aqil smiles. “We had a positive weekend in Scotland last time out and have enjoyed some incredible races and results, including that win at Snetterton and second at Oulton Park. But this year has also had its fair share of challenges.
“Qualifying remains our biggest quandary. We don’t have the budget to continually test on new tyres as many rivals do, so we’re still learning how to light the fresh rubber up. The rain levelled the playing field last time, but we cannot be assured of a wet track every time. Still, we always progress in the races and I will be looking for more of that over these last rounds.
We have two rounds to go, with Donington this weekend and the finals at Brands Hatch in October, so let’s hope we can make qualifying stick! Special thanks to Virtuosi Racing all the effort, support and understanding this year, to all my fans and supporters and my family. Let’s do this!”
