Kanato Le kick-starts F4 UAE Championship in Dubai



13 - 14 JANUARY 2023

  • Young Japanese racer Kanato Le will make his debut in the UAE F4 Championship this week with the opening round of the 2023 season at Dubai Autodrome

  • The 5.39 km Dubai Autodrome consists of 16 corners and will play host to three championship races this week

  • Kanato arrives at the Dubai Autodrome after the winter break but on the back of an impressive debut weekend in Formula 4

  • Making his competitive single-seater debut at the 2022 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend, Kanato claimed a second-place podium finish on his debut weekend alongside a top-five finish in the non-championship UAE F4 Trophy

  • This weekend marks the start of the five-round, fifteen-race, UAE F4 Championship which will visit Dubai Autodrome, Kuwait Motor Town, and Yas Marina Circuit

  • The action starts with testing this week, followed by the first qualifying session of the season on Friday at 12:00 (GMT +4), followed by the first race of the season at 16:25

  • Saturday commences with race two at 09:40, with the final race of round one taking place at 12:25

“I'm really looking forward to the first race of the 2023 season this week. My first F4 weekend back in November was a successful one with a podium in Abu Dhabi so the goal this week is to carry that momentum into Dubai. It's been a long break away from racing, but with the Hitech GP team behind me, I am confident that we can have a strong weekend and launch our championship campaign off on the right foot."
