When was the last time a race was run where nobody completed the distance?

It seems like everybody must have used the same fuel use calculations, I know it is a spec formula but how did everybody manage to get it wrong?

Because it's centrally run all by Peter Thompson. Embarrassingly amateur.

Alessio should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
All cars are run by Meritus (as peebee above states, owned by Peter Thompson, one of the men behind the catastrophe that was Asian/Philippines Formula 3) so all had the same fuel calculations. It was somewhat understandable while equally very amateur, due to the weather drain that was dislodged in yesterdays Free Practice 2 their second race was moved to a back-to-back slot this morning. There wasn't enough time to refuel the cars in time for the second of the two races and as such Meritus fueled the cars for 2 races. Obviously, incorrectly...

Aside from the inability to do something simple as fill the fuel tanks of 9 Mygale F4 cars (pretty sure they can race for 40 minutes on one tank), he can't attract numbers approaching every other name single seater series in the region. Even Chinese F4 manages 12 on most weekends.

Very true-I had not heard of this championship before this report

F4 SEA had a non-functioning website for the first season, and it was hard to even find results (their Facebook page wasn't always updated with them).

I guess they're doing better than the Danish championship. Most of the time the F4 series had less entries than the Formula Fords running alongside them...

Since I didn't see this posted: http://www.chicasracing.com/2017/08/...-shootout.html

Translation - NACAM F4 will become a feeder series for Indycar, via sending its champions to the scholarship shootout held each December. The winner gets a full-season drive in USF2000.

Guess that is the Mexican F4 series?

And their "race replays" were no more than a series of interviews interspersed with a few onboard shots from the races.

In Germany young drivers say that it would had been better to retain Formula Masters as Formula 4 is quite more expensive just because of the name.

"Feeder" is a bit of a stretch. The Shootout has a dozen of FF and F4 champions from around the world.

In 2016 they ran at Austin.
