For the fourth season in a row, the UK’s FIA Formula 4 series, now known as the F4 British Championship, will follow the British Touring Car Championship calendar that was announced a few weeks ago. The news sees little change to the overall timetable.

As per usual, British F4 will feature three races at each round with a qualifying and 20 minute events taking place on the Saturday and Sunday. The season will once again start and finish at the Brands Hatch circuit.

The biggest change is the placement of the Knockhill round, which had been announced to take place at the end of August. This sees it become the eighth round, with Rockingham moving to its prior date, earlier in the month. The start of the season will also see the second to fifth rounds shoved back a week or two, thus eradicating the long summer break.

In the current season, Jamie Caroline leads the way, with 210 points over double the total of almost all drivers in the series, with the exception of Oscar Piastri on 119.5. The next round will take place at Croft on the 10/11 June.

Olli Caldwell will make his debut for the TRS Arden squad.
