The F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost organising team have released a provisional testing schedule for the upcoming 2019 season.
By virtue of its position as the only single-seater support category on the UK’s premier motorsport package – the British Touring Car Championship – British F4 benefits from an official test day prior to each meeting.
In order to best help develop the next generation of motorsport stars in a reliable, safe and race-proven environment, organisers have also unveiled the dates for five unofficial test days, starting with the championship’s Media Day at Brands Hatch on Wednesday 13th March.
A two-day trip to the 2.1-mile Croft Circuit in Yorkshire follows on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th June alongside single-day events at Knockhill (Wednesday 11th September) and Silverstone (Thursday 26th September), giving the Ford EcoBoost-powered field invaluable track time before returning to compete at each circuit.
That means Britain’s FIA-sanctioned Formula 4 series – renowned as the most competitive of its kind worldwide – offers drivers up to 15 extra days of track time as they look to progress up the single-seater ladder.
Another ten-event, thirty-race calendar promising drama, intrigue and wheel-to-wheel action gets underway at Brands Hatch in front of a capacity crowd and ITV Sport’s television cameras on 6th-7th April.
