BMW vs JAESA Suzuki

The German side has already achieved an easy victory over Williams, and another 4-0 win would practically already see them in the semi-finals.

Suzuki on the other hand suffered a 0-4 loss at the hands of Williams and had Week 2 off to lick their wounds and come back fighting.

However, Suzuki will be no pushovers and will relish the opportunity to produce an upset on Wednesday.

Aston Martin vs Red Bull

Aston Martin has been the powerhouse so far this season. Following wins against YAS Heat and R8G Esports, the team is looking incredibly strong. Blakeley in particular has been putting in very strong performances for the racing green team.

Red Bull unfortunately has had a different start to the season. Following a no-race in week 1 the team took a 0-4 loss against Redline.

The Red Bull team, however, has some serious talent on board and will have been practicing to prevent a repeat of week 2.

R8G Esports vs YAS Heat

R8G Esports had a difficult opening week against Aston Martin and suffered a 4-0 loss as a result.

YAS Heat is in a similar situation but has also managed to secure some points so far.

With small mistakes costing them even more points, they may well be in for a win this Wednesday.

Williams vs McLaren Shadow

Williams will be looking for a bounce-back this week, after an opening 4-0 win was followed by a 1-3 loss to BMW.

Their extra year of experience should give them what they need to stay out in front, but the match-up will still be a tough one.

McLaren Shadow will be after the same, following a week of small mistakes which cost them a win and the much-needed 3 points.
