DUNLOP MSA FORMULA FORD CHAMPIONSHIP OF GREAT BRITAIN
The Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain is set to transform the junior motorsport scene in Britain this season, becoming the fastest junior single-seaters in the UK, racing alongside the British Touring Car Championship.
The technical revisions to the new Formula Ford engine and chassis incorporate feedback from drivers, teams and manufacturers. The 1.6-litre turbocharged EcoBoost power unit has been tuned to develop in excess of 200PS and is mated to a Formula 3 specification six-speed sequential gearbox, with front and rear aerodynamic wings added to the chassis to provide young drivers with the most technically advanced junior single-seater racing car in the world, and an unrivalled learning experience.
And Formula Ford this year returns to Britain’s premier motorsport package to race alongside the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship. The three-year deal will see Formula Ford EcoBoost 200 become the sole regular single-seater support championship for the BTCC, with three races at each of the 10 TOCA-organised events, with the benefit of live TV coverage.
Seat time remains a cornerstone of the Formula Ford ethos. A 30-race championship is believed to offer the highest number of races of any junior single-seater formula, giving all drivers the maximum competitive time behind the wheel, and exceptional value for money.
Inspired partly by the success of Formula Ford 2000 in the 1980s, the combination of 10 events in front of the BTCC’s massive spectator fanbase, allied to the speed and durability of the new EcoBoost Formula Fords - not to mention the exciting new element that will come with the additions of greater power and aero wings - will make Formula Ford the best and most attractive junior single-seater series in the UK.
