The BRDC Formula 4 Championship will run a Privateers’ Cup for its inaugural season, with the winning driver receiving a prize of £5,000.

The Privateers Cup will run alongside the main drivers’ championship and is supported by telecommunications company Yoozoom, whose logo will be on show on the privateer car’s rear wing endplates.

“We’re very pleased to be a part of the BRDC Formula 4 Championship which we know is going to be a fantastic entry level formula for up and coming young drivers with great cars, the right budgets and plenty of racing action,” said Yoozoom’s Managing Director, former McLaren Autosport BRDC award finalist Alex Deighton. “We’ve been looking at UK motorsports to promote our business and F4 gave us the opportunity we were looking for that matches the Yoozoom brand – young, dynamic and very exciting. It’s our pleasure to put our name to the Privateers’ Cup as I remember what it was like to raise a budget!”

The privateers champion will receive £5,000 prize money, which adds to a prize fund that sees the overall champion receive a £25,000 scholarship and a test with Formula 3 squad Carlin.
