Event Format

The BRDC British Formula 3 Championship is run by MSVR and comprises 24 races across eight events.

The weekend format includes a 30 minute qualifying session and three 20 minute races.

The grid for the first is set in qualifying order, the grid for the second in order of race 1 with the top 8 reversed, and the grid for the third race in order of fastest laps from race 1 or 2. Such a format provides exciting racing, the opportunity for misfortune in qualifying or races not to ruin the weekend and for drivers to develop overtaking skills.

The minimum licence requirement for the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship is National A. Testing is unrestricted.

2017 Registration Fee = £1025 + VAT

2017 Entry Fee (per event) = £695 + VAT
