BRDC set to launch Formula 4 in Britain

Autosport wrote:MotorSport Vision, promoters of the FIA Formula 2 championship, have launched a new junior single-seater series in conjunction with the British Racing Drivers' Club.

The UK-based category, titled the BRDC Formula 4 Championship, will run for the first time in 2013.

It will use identical cars built around a Ralph Firman-designed chassis, although it will not be centrally run, with teams and private entrants buying and running their own chassis. Teams will be restricted to a maximum of four chassis.

Eight events, each featuring three races, are planned for the inaugural season, which will include visits to the Silverstone and Brands Hatch Grand Prix tracks.

In addition, the championship is scheduled to run on the support bill of both the DTM and selected F3/GT events.

MSV Chief Executive Jonathan Palmer predicted the championship would re-energise the domestic motorsport scene.

"It is clear that British motorsport needs a new single-seater championship that really attracts the young talent of today," he said.

"At MSV we have used all of our considerable experience and judgment to launch what I think is a compelling package that I believe will re-energise this sector of motor racing.

"We are in an era of relative austerity, which looks like continuing for some years, and it is essential we provide young single-seater drivers with an affordable path to learn and prove themselves."

BRDC president Derek Warwick added: "The 'BRDC Formula 4 Championship' gives us exactly what our sport is missing; reliability, slicks, wings, good horsepower and affordability."

Formula 4 is already (technically) ran in Britain under the 750MC banner, however that championship uses ex-Formula 3 chassis containing Formula Ford engines.

So what will the original Formula 4 be rebranded as. I don't think it's fair for them to have to change their name.
