Formula Pro USA F4 concluded its Winter Series at Auto Club Speedway this past weekend with Mother Nature playing a very big role in all of the races. Friday saw great weather conditions with partly cloudy skies and temps in the 60’s. The final practice session of the day produced the following results:

  • 1:42.628 – Dylan Tavella – Alliance Racing sponsored by Gas Monkeys
  • 1:43.394 – Jose Blanco – Kiwi Motorsports
  • 1:43.650 – Marco Kacic – Doran Motorsports Group
  • 1:43.806 – Logan Cusson – Jensen Global Advisors Driver Training and Development
  • 1:43.843 – Ryan MacDermid – Alliance Racing sponsored by Gas Monkeys
  • 1:45.880 – Alan Tang – Doran Motorsports Group
  • 1:51.438 – Will Edwards – Alliance Racing sponsored by Gas Monkeys

Saturday’s weather proved to be quite different, with on and off rain throughout the day and some heavy downpours thrown in for good measure. Jose Blanco set the fastest time in qualifying to secure pole position but at the end of the day Marco Kacic pulled out the overall win of the Round 3 race with Logan Cusson in second and Alan Tang in third. This was the first ever F4 race for the Doran Motorsports Group and its drivers, so they appear to be off to a very strong start with their program.

Round 3 podium:

  1. Marco Kacic – Doran Motorsports Group
  2. Logan Cusson – Jensen Global Advisors Driver Training and Development
  3. Alan Tang – Doran Motorsports Group

The Winter Series concluded Sunday with the round 4 final race running once again in the rain. While not as heavy as Saturday’s weather, the track was still wet with on and off rain showers. Jose Blanco of Kiwi Motorsport still managed to set an F4 race lap record for Cal Club Auto Club Speedway with a lap time of 1:57.780 while running in the rain. Unfortunately he had car trouble toward the end of the race and was unable to finish. Logan Cusson running with Jensen Global Advisors Driver Training and Development ran consistently throughout the weekend capping his Sonoma victories with podium finishes, including a win of the round 4 race at Auto Club Speedway and securing the overall 2019 Formula Pro USA F4 Winter Series Championship.

Round 4 podium:

  1. Logan Cusson – Jensen Global Advisors Driver Training and Development
  2. Alan Tang – Doran Motorsports Group
