Since its formation eight years ago as a Formula 4 championship, the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship has forged a reputation as the UK’s leading single-seater championship, with consistently strong grids and an emphasis on equality and affordability. As a result, the championship has attracted a significant number of highly talented drivers, and past champions George Russell and Will Palmer, plus Lando Norris, Tom Gamble and most recently Johnathan Hoggard, have all won the newly-titled Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Award, the world’s most prestigious prize for young aspiring F1 drivers.
The new Tatuus car, introduced in 2016, was significantly upgraded ahead of the 2020 season with new bodywork and wings, a frontal protection device, electrical upgrades and a brand new engine from Mountune. The car, which has 230 brake horsepower, meets all the latest FIA Formula 3 safety criteria including side impact, front and rear carbon impact structures, wheel tethers and extractable seat, and remains a vital step on the ladder to F1 for young drivers.
BRDC British F3 routinely attracts drivers from around the world and saw a season-long battle for the championship, eventually won by Kaylen Frederick.
The British Racing Drivers’ Club continues to lend its support and plays an active role in the championship, which will run alongside British GT again in 2021, continuing the traditional F3/GT package that ran successfully on UK circuits for so many years.
