The Formula 4 UAE Championship season came to a historic finish for local side Yas Heat Racing, with the Yas Marina Circuit-based team securing their highest ever finish in the championship, with a third-place finish following a strong season for young stars, Keanu Al Azhari and Zack Scoular.

Following a sensational final weekend to cap off the season-long championship battle, Al Azhari would secure P3 in the overall championship in just his second season with the team, after an impressive 2024 campaign featuring 2 race wins and over 6 podium finishes for the 16-year-old.

Al Azhari said: “It was an incredible season with the team. A lot of great results and I was able to show how good I am against a lot of great teams and drivers from all around the world.

“To be able to do it with the Yas Heat Racing Academy, which I have been a part of since the team’s formation was truly incredible. It’s a great atmosphere within the team and this would not have been possible without them.”

Meanwhile, Yas Heat Racing ambassador Rashid Al Dhaheri completed his career’s best F4 championship finish in 2024, with the Emirati driver securing five podium finishes across the campaign including a sensational racing victory at Yas Marina Circuit in the penultimate round before a final race victory to conclude the season and a win at the final round at the Dubai Autodrome.

Rookie starlet Zack Scoular delivered a noteworthy performance in his debut season with the Abu Dhabi-based team, consistently achieving top 15 finishes across the campaign to finish his first season to earn an impressive 5th place finish in the Rookie standings.

Matthew Norman, Team Principal, Yas Heat Racing commented: “It’s been a brilliant effort from our young drivers and the full team in our second season. There have been signs of strong progress from our debut campaign, and to achieve the consistency in our performances has been tremendous.

“The historic race wins that the Yas Heat family enjoyed and experienced across this season will live long in the memory, and we are eagerly looking forward to how we shape up for the coming months and plan for the 2025 season.”

Following a historic conclusion to the Formula 4 UAE Championship season, the team will return to circuit action later this year at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend in December.
