Established in 2015, the ROKiT F4 British Championship certified by FIA is the globally recognised first stepway on the FIA’s Single Seater Pathway.
Utilising the latest in safety and performance technology, the series features identical Tatuus T-421 chassis, powered by Abarth engines and with controlled tyres from Pirelli to form a race-proven, reliable, and instructive package for drivers at a crucial stage in their development.
The championship has an unrivalled promotional platform to aid drivers in building their audience; as part of the high-profile British Touring Car Championship package, British F4 receives live, free-to-air television coverage on ITV4, as well as capacity trackside crowds, at each of the ten events on the UK’s premier circuits.
Having previously launched the careers of legends including Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, Damon Hill, Eddie Irvine, Jenson Button, David Coulthard and – more recently – McLaren F1 star Lando Norris, the category remains the ‘go-to’ destination for drivers aspiring to achieve a career at the sport’s highest level. The new season will begin at Donington Park, Leicestershire on 22 April 2023, and below outlines the requirements for prospective entries to compete
