British F4 E-Sports Finale Debrief
Written by Olivia Eyeson
Round 8 at Brands Hatch marked the end of Mensah Racing’s inaugural season of the British F4 E-Sport Championship. The season has consisted of highs and lows, which have provided essential data needed for the team to improve.
The championship’s grid consists of 15 teams and 30 drivers competing across 8 rounds. Each round holds 2 20 20-minute races, with the second race holding a reversed starting grid.
Round 8 - Brands Hatch
The season finale of the British F4 E-Sports championships saw the drivers head to the iconic Brands Hatch Circuit. The Brands Hatch GP Circuit holds 11 corners holding 3 left-handers and 8 right-handers across the 3.916km track.
Race 1 saw the start of a difficult weekend for the team. Both drivers were involved in crashes which saw Elliot Pugh finish P23 and Carl Chase finish P26.
Race 2 unfortunately brought more disappointment with Elliot Pugh being involved in another crash leading him to finish P21. Though he wasn’t involved in an incident, Carl Chase also had a DNF after disconnecting leading him to be classified as P23.
In the Formula Ford 1600 finale, Aaron Mensah finished P16 in Race 1. However, in Race 2 he had difficult luck after he was involved in a crash leading him to finish P19.
Though the finale at Brands Hatch proved difficult for the team, the season has included highs such as our podium at Silverstone and points at Donington Park showing the potential of the team. This season has allowed the team to learn more about the setup and track locations so that we can return stronger next season. Hopefully 2024 will see the team battle for points, podiums and wins each weekend.
