With the end of the 2019 F4 United States Championship powered by Honda in sight, Alliance Racing Sponsored by Gas Monkey Energy is headed to Austin, Texas this weekend, November 1-3, for their season finale. Taking place at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) during the United States Grand Prix weekend, Alliance Racing is prepared to take on the 20-turn road course for the final two rounds of their 2019 campaign
Once again returning to their four-car lineup, Alliance Racing Sponsored by Gas Monkey Energy will be bringing season regulars Dylan Tavella, Chandler Horton and Will Edwards. Joining them will be Tommy Foster from Europe, a new addition to the Gas Monkey branded squad for the finale weekend.
The complete Alliance Racing Sponsored by Gas Monkey Energy team can be seen at the Gas Monkey Garage on Wednesday, October 30th from 11:30am until 1:30pm for a meet and greet, autograph signings and photo opportunities.
Having not raced in nearly six weeks, the team is eager to get one final opportunity before heading into the offseason. During their last race weekend, at Sebring International Raceway, Alliance Racing had one of their strongest events of the season and walked away with one podium and six top-ten finishes. After a weekend of solid results, the team is anxious to get started and look to continue the momentum to end the season on a high note.
“It is a record setting weekend for the F4 program, and we are happy to be a part of it,” explained Team Owner Toney Edwards. “Qualifying is going to be very important with 37 cars entered, and it will be key to get a quick lap early on in the session.”
Competing alongside Formula One at the biggest event of the season, drivers will have little track time in preparation for qualifying and the duo of races. Beginning early Friday morning, Alliance Racing will have one 30-minute practice session prior to qualifying later in the afternoon. Prior to Formula One taking the track both days, Alliance Racing will compete in one race event on Saturday and Sunday morning.
Edwards continued, “We are excited to welcome several Gas Monkey Energy staff to the event and can’t wait to visit the Gas Monkey Garage mid-week. Running alongside the Formula One World Championship is definitely the highlight of the year, but to have our friends from Gas Monkey on site makes it that much better.”
