Event Format

Each GB4 Championship race weekend includes a 15 minute qualifying session and three 18 minute races. The grid for the first two races is determined in qualifying, with each driver’s quickest lap forming the race one grid, and their second quickest laps establishing the starting order for race two.

The third race will be a full grid reversal with extra points awarded for positions gained as well as for each driver’s finishing position. All scores count towards a driver’s end of championship position.

The minimum age to compete in GB4 is 15, with the minimum licence requirement being Race Club. Testing is unrestricted.

GB4 will offer drivers the chance to contest a full season of competitive single-seater racing in Britain for budgets from around £60,000 for a privateer to an anticipated £120,000 to £150,000 running with a professional team. Championship registration will be in the order of £2,500*, with full season entries circa £6,500*. A comprehensive prize package will be on offer, including a £50,000 prize fund for the championship winner towards their next single seater campaign the following season.
