The GB3 Championship 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 the British GT Championship, also taking in an overseas round at Spa. Highlights of each round are broadcast on ITV4, while the races are streamed live online on YouTube, Facebook, and the series website, ensuring excellent exposure.

The car

The Tatuus MSV-022 GB3 car is a significantly upgraded machine designed to meet the latest safety standards and improve performance.

The car features a completely new chassis, the Tatuus MSV-022, incorporating the halo, improved side-impact protection, revisions to the roll hoop, headrest, front anti-intrusion panel, seat and fuel cell areas.

A new aerodynamics package features a completely revised sculpted underfloor, diffuser, skid block, keel and bib, plus changes to the side pods, radiator ducts, damper cover and engine cover. Downforce levels are increased significantly over the previous specification, in the region of 20-25 percent.

The 2021 GB3 Champion received a free of charge two day FIA Formula 3 test at Valencia in November. This builds on GB3’s record of moving drivers on to the FIA F3 Championship, including the two most recent champions Clement Novalak and Kaylen Frederick.

The Jack Cavill Pole Position Cup initiative has been running since the inaugural BRDC F4 season in 2013, and has continued through the series’ transition into BRDC British F3 and then GB3, with £36,000 awarded to drivers during the past eight seasons. Drivers receive £250 and a trophy per pole position (races one and two each weekend), while the driver with the most poles at the end of the season receives a trophy and £2,000.

The leading drivers in this year’s GB3 and GB4 Championships will receive a tour of the Oracle Red Bull Racing Formula One team factory this summer, thanks to the continued generosity of Pole Position Cup award founder John Cavill. Cavill placed a winning bid for the experience at the Autosport Awards ceremony in London, and elected to offer the two places to drivers competing in GB3 and GB4. The driver leading their respective championship after the Donington Park rounds on 28/29 May will receive an invite to visit the state-of-the-art Milton Keynes Technology Campus at the end of June.
