The organisers of the BRDC Formula 4 Championship have revealed the calendar for the second running of the single-seater championship in 2014.
The eight weekend, 24 race schedule is headlined by a support slot at the Blancpain GT Sprint Series event at Brands Hatch GP in May, alongside two appearances on the British GT/Formula 3 package over the campaign.
The schedule takes in the same five venues as 2013, with two trips to Silverstone GP, Brands Hatch GP and Snetterton 300 respectively, as well as single outings at Oulton Park and Donington Park – meaning circuits like Croft, Rockingham and Thruxton are once again not visited.
The season will start at Silverstone GP in late April, running through to a finale at Snetterton 300 in late October.
“The 2014 season is certain to be even more competitive and is sure to have a capacity 26 car grid as drivers recognise that BRDC F4 is the place to be,” said F4 series director Jonathan Palmer.
“Our calendar has by far the most prestigious circuits of any UK single seater championship; two visits to the Silverstone GP circuit and another two to the fabulous Brands Hatch GP are sure to be of huge appeal to the drivers. Snetterton is now one of the UK’s best circuits, whilst Oulton Park and Donington are two more driver favourites to complete the line-up.”
