Motorsport Ireland Young Driver of The Year Jordan Dempsey, from Mullingar, is off to China once again this weekend as he and his Pinnacle Motorsport team prepare for the fourth event of the FIA F4 Chinese Championship at the Ningbo International Speedpark this weekend.
Dempsey has enjoyed a string of podium finishes and race wins, with two 2nd place finishes at Zhuhai and three wins at Chengdu. This has allowed the young Irishman to propel himself to 2nd place in the driver’s championship, despite a DNF and missing the season opener in May.
The team, which has strong Irish links, intends to continue this strong momentum when they arrive at Ningbo to score more victories and close the gap in the drivers’ title.
The FIA F4 Chinese Championship’s fourth event will feature Qualifying and Race 1 onSeptember 1 (Saturday), followed by Race 2 and 3 on September 2 (Sunday).
Accompanying Pinnacle Motorsport on their FIA F4 Chinese Championship campaign are partners Motorsport Ireland and P1 Racewear.
Jordan Dempsey: “I’m looking forward to the race this weekend at Ningbo. It’s a very technical track so I’ve been working hard in the gym to ensure I’m in top shape. I know it’s going to be tough, but I have full confidence in Pinnacle Motorsport and in myself. Hoping to land more podium finishes and close the gap to the championship leader.”
