The British series will kick off in early April, headlining a BRSCC meeting around the Silverstone National circuit, before joining the British F3 and British GT series' for trips to Oulton Park and the new Snetterton 300 circuit. It will then join the Eurocup at Brands Hatch and Zandvoort, before returning to Brands in September to support the DTM series, then re-joining the F3/GT paddock for its final two rounds at Donington Park and Silverstone.

The Eurocup, aimed at pitting together the best young single seater talent from Formula Ford championships throughout Europe, will take place over four meetings. After its meeting at Brands Hatch, it will support the FIA GT4 European Cup and British GT at Spa-Francorchamps. A meeting at Zolder will follow, before its final rounds at the Zandvoort Masters in mid-august.

Sam Roach, of championship promoter RacingLine, said: “We are very pleased indeed with the circuits and dates we have secured for both the Dunlop MSA Championship and also for the EuroCup. Formula Ford and Formula 3 fit together perfectly, as evidenced by the number of Formula Ford drivers who go on to success in F3, and it is very pleasing that so many of our British championship dates have that association.

“The new EuroCup has an impressive and compact calendar also, at some fantastic tracks and alongside some superb events. The series is attracting considerable interest not only from British teams and drivers seeking to broaden their experience but also from the Benelux and Scandinavian competitors.”
