BRDC British Formula 3 is the UK’s premier single seater championship, the final step on the national ladder before graduating to Europe’s major championships.

The championship tours Britain’s best circuits with British GT, also taking in an overseas round at Spa. Highlights of each round are broadcast on ITV4, while the majority of races are streamed live online, ensuring excellent exposure.

The car

CDR fields three BF3-020s in BRDC F3, which produce 230bhp from a 2-litre Mountune engine. The carbon-fibre Tatuus chassis meets all the latest safety regulations including side impact panels, front and rear carbon impact structures, wheel tethers, anti-intrusion panels and an extractable seat.

The car also features a six-speed sequential gearbox with paddle shift provided by Sadev and fitted with a limited-slip differential, and runs on Pirelli tyres.

Upgraded for 2020, each car now has improved aerodynamics with revised front and rear wings, barge boards and engine cover fin, greater set-up flexibility and an Advanced Frontal Protection Device to deflect debris away from the driver and act as a secondary roll structure.

Leading British drivers will also be considered as finalists for the Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Award. Ayrton Simmons was a finalist in this competition in 2019 after racing with Chris Dittmann Racing.

BRDC Support

The championship features heavy support from the British Racing Drivers’ Club, based at Silverstone. Prominent BRDC members present trophies at race events, the series features in BRDC publications, and many British drivers are inducted into the BRDC Rising Stars scheme.
