F4 British Championship (full name F4 British Championship certified by FIA -- powered by Ford, formerly known as MSA Formula) is a single-seater motorsport series based in the United Kingdom. The series will be run to the FIA's Formula 4 regulations, and is administered by Motor Sports Association. The championship is designed as a low-cost entrance to car racing, and is aimed at young racing drivers moving up from karting.

The championship replaces the British Formula Ford Championship, and uses a chassis produced by Mygale and engines from Ford. The series is part of the TOCA tour, a series of events run alongside the British Touring Car Championship.

Championship format

Each championship event consists of three races. The series is run in support of the BTCC

Fifteen-year-olds are eligible to compete in the series, after the MSA lowered the age limit for single-seater championships.[1] The winner of the championship will be named the FIA Formula 4 champion, and will be rewarded a test with a top-level regional Formula Three team.[2]

The car

Mygale provide a carbon-fibre monocoque chassis. The engine is a Ford 1.6L EcoBoost engine as used in the more modern Formula Ford cars, tuned to a maximum of 160 PS. All engines are prepared and tuned by Sodemo, to lower costs and ensure engine equalisation.[2]Hankook are the sole tyre supplier, with the cars running on the same compound and construction rubber as used in Formula Three. Sadev provide the sequential paddle shift transmission. The engine control unit is an F88GDI4 from Life Racing which features integrated paddle shift control, GPS track mapping and also functions as the complete data acquisition system.

The total price of purchasing the car is capped at £36,000.[2]
