The new GB4 Championship partnered by the BRDC, is the UK’s newest and best value entry-level junior single-seater category in the UK. GB4 has been created to offer drivers graduating from karting or club racing a significantly lower cost route onto the single-seater ladder.
GB4 will act as a direct feeder series to higher open-wheel categories, running in close alignment with MSV's already successful GB3 Championship partnered by the BRDC. GB4 runs primarily on the same British GT race programme, offering teams an excellent platform from which to enter both series.
Teams attracted to the series include several GB3 operations, plus some of the country’s leading Formula Ford and sports car teams.
The new championship meets the need for an affordable alternative for drivers beginning a single-seater career, with costs significantly reduced when compared to FIA F4 following the introduction of its new car. GB4 aims to offer drivers the chance to contest a full season of competitive single-seater racing in Britain for between £120,000 and £150,000.
The winner of the 2023 GB4 Championship will again be rewarded with a £50,000 contribution towards their 2024 single-seater racing programme. The biggest fund available in UK junior single-seater racing, the £50,000 can be put towards a campaign in either GB3 or British Formula 4 for the following season, and will be paid to the team that the driver contracts with as part of their career progression towards hopefully F1.
