The calendar for the second season of the Formula 4 South East Asian Championship has been revealed, with the series announcing six events in total, two of which will support Formula One races.

The opening round at the Marina Bay Street Circuit, will take place on the 14-17 September, the same week as the headlining Singapore Grand Prix. Space was cleared up after FIA Formula 2 decided not to return to the venue for its flyaway event.

After this, the series will follow Formula 1 to the Sepang International Circuit, with events taking place between the 28th September and 1st October.

From here, the series goes its own way, with the usual end of year visits to Clark International Speedway in the Philippines and Sentul International Circuit in Indonesia. At the start of the new year, the championship will visit Chang International Circuit in Thailand, before ending the year once again at Sepang.

The series will retain the six events it had last year, with one of the three Sepang rounds being replaced with their trip to Singapore.

The series, which runs off the FIA’s Formula 4 concept saw a 36-race season last year, with Indonesian Presley Martono claiming the overall title. The resulting Renault scholarship allowed the 16-year-old to step up to the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Series this season.

The series uses a Mygale M14-F4 Chassis, just like the British, Australian and Chinese counterparts. It also uses a Renault F4R 2.0L engine, which until the launch of the Danish series this season, had been unique to the region.
