2013 Protyre Formula Renault Championship

The 2013 Protyre Formula Renault Championship was a multi-event motor racing championship for open wheel, formula racing cars held across England. The championship features a mix of professional motor racing teams and privately funded drivers competing in 2 litre Formula Renault single seat race cars that conform to the technical regulations for the championship. The 2013 season was the 19th British Formula Renault Championship organized by the British Automobile Racing Club and the second season as the premier Formula Renault 2.0 championship in the United Kingdom. The season began at Donington Park on 14 April and ended on 29 September at Silverstone Circuit. The series will form part of the BARC club racing meetings and expanded from fourteen to sixteen rounds at six events all held in England, with four triple header events.

The series has undergone rebranding after the BARC Championship became the prominent Formula Renault Championship in the United Kingdom. The series took the name Protyre Formula Renault Championship, dropping the BARC tag after its growth into one of the leading national single seater championships in Great Britain.[1]
