Alibhai comes out of a tough challenge smiling

South African race driver Aqil Alibhai intends on closing his rookie FIA British F4 championship season off in style at Brands Hatch in the south of England over the weekend of 7 and 8 October. Alibhai has enjoyed an impressive season that has brought a race win and several podium finishes through the year aboard his Virtuosi Racing Taatus and he is keen to finish on the front foot at the Kent circuit finale.

“My first year in single seaters has been a bit of a rollercoaster season, but wow, we have learned so much!” Aqil reflected. “We have won a race and often fought up front to bring in a good few other podium finishes, so had a lot of highs en route. But it’s also been tough in the ranks, I have had to fight for some menial places, I was taken out more than once, and we have had our challenges as we have learned and grown though 2023. But it’s been huge fun, all the way!

“The 2023 season now comes to a head at one of the jewels of British motorsport at Brands Hatch, so I’m really looking forward to this weekend. Being so late in the year, we never know what the weather will throw up, but I’m prepared and ready for anything. “I need to thank my Virtuosi team for a fantastic season and up front for the same great car as always at Brands. I look forward to doing it one last time for my family, friends and fans, home and away. Can’t wait!”
