Motorsport Vision (MSV) unveiled the brand new F4 car that will be used in the BRDC Formula 4 Championship today at the 2013 Autosport International Show.

The MSV F4-013 was revealed to invited media, guests, teams and drivers by MSV Chief Executive Jonathan Palmer and BRDC President Derek Warwick.

“In recent years racing drivers in the UK wishing to start a single seater career have not had the car or series they really wanted and we set out to address this with the BRDC F4 Championship,” said Palmer. “However, we were determined to provide not just a low cost single seater, but a great car in its own right.

“Ralph Firman Racing, working with our own MSV engineers, has produced a truly remarkable car that sets new standards. Never before has such a sophisticated single seater been available at such a low price.”

Derek Warwick added: “The BRDC Formula 4 Championship gives us exactly what our sport is missing; reliability, slicks, wings, good horsepower and affordability. Most young drivers want to gain the right experience as quickly as possible before moving up the racing ladder and this is why the BRDC is backing F4 and MSV.”
