MANILA, Philippines — Iñigo Anton is ready to drive the flag high – and fast – in a much-awaited Formula 4 racing debut.

The multi-titled racing prodigy, at only 19 years of age, will represent the country in the prestigious F4 Southeast Asia Series Championship at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia on Dec. 1 to 3.

Spending his life on the track since he was eight, Anton, with BlackArts Racing, vowed his readiness and confidence to make the country proud when he slugs it out against the region’s best speedsters.

“I feel like I’ve been preparing my whole life for this opportunity and it’s finally happening. I am grateful for this chance to compete in Formula cars and I owe it to the people who have helped me along the way,” said Anton, the son of racing champions Karen and Carlos.

“My family, my coaches, my team’s sponsors and supporters, everyone has worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this debut possible. I will continue to do my very best for all of you.”

Anton, indeed, equipped himself with the necessary training and preparations to have come this far.
