British F3 confirms continued use of existing car

26 September 2018

Motor Sport Vision has confirmed that the BRDC British F3 Championship, which it runs, is set to continue with the current technical package for 2019.

The current Tatuus-Cosworth car was launched in 2016 and has proved popular with teams and drivers, offering performance and reliability along with value for money. The car has been raced by almost 70 drivers over the past three years, with notable alumni including Lando Norris, who is set to drive for McLaren F1 next year, Indycar driver Matheus Leist, and last year’s champion Enaam Ahmed, who has since won races in the Formula 3 European Championship.

“I’m pleased to confirm that we will continue with our existing chassis, engine and technical arrangement next year,” said MSV chief executive Jonathan Palmer.

“The BRDC British F3 Championship is the most cost effective series of its type in the world and provides the perfect platform for drivers to gain experience and put themselves in the spotlight in a globally respected, great value championship. BRDC British F3 has been the strongest and best-subscribed single seater category in this country since its inception, and we fully expect that to continue next year.”

Giles Butterfield, MSV’s group operations and engineering manager, meanwhile highlighted why the current package is so popular.

“It’s provided unrivalled performance parity with normally aspirated engines, excellent reliability and the teams are universal in their praise of it,” he said. “It is highly likely we will have a very strong grid in 2019 – the teams are very happy to be here and everyone who drives the car is extremely complimentary about it.”
