The British F4 Esports Championship, supported by Motorsport UK, returns in 2023

Motorsport UK’s officially sanctioned British F4 Esports Championship returns this year, with the best real-world and esports teams lining up to compete in the extended eight-round series.

The 2023 British F4 Esports Championship, to be held between September and November, is set to follow on from last year’s inaugural series. Williams Esports and Stormforce Racing ART return, with the latter helping Luke McKeown win the 2022 Drivers’ Championship.

As for the youngsters, the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Esports team has signed up for 2023, adding additional racing experience to the grid. A larger prize pool and championship partners are yet to be announced.

As in 2022, the British F4 Esports Championship will use iRacing’s Formula iR-04 – renamed ‘FIA F4’ after official FIA patronage – as the special car, with expected visits to Oulton Park, Snetterton, Donington Park, Knockhill, Brands Hatch and Silverstone throughout the season with all races broadcast live.

New British F4 Esports Championship support series in the works

In keeping with the return of the British F4 Esports Championship, Motorsport UK has also announced plans to start a Feeder Series featuring iRacing’s FF1600 car.

The Ray FF1600 is based on the popular Formula Ford 1600 single seater class, which has been a mainstay of British racing since 1967. Perfectly combining affordability and performance, it has helped shape the careers of British Formula 1 champions such as Jenson Button and Nigel Mansell.

Motorsport UK hopes the Feeder series will provide a talent path for ‘non-professional’ sim racers, with the races being broadcast as part of British F4 Esports’ mainstream broadcast.

Dubbed the UK FF1600 Esports Cup, the Feeder Series competition is open to all with an iRacing subscription pending a pre-championship qualifying session. Racers are also required to have a valid Motorsport UK Esports membership (currently £24.99 per year), which complements the launch of the organisation’s new Esports Hub.
