The BRDC run Autumn Trophy will return for the 2016 season at Snetterton. The newly renamed, BRDC British F3 Autumn Trophy will be a one round affair that will take place over one weekend.

The teams and drivers will be allowed to compete in an all day test on the Thursday before the event, while there will be two hours of running on Friday for the official test.

As for the weekend itself, it’ll be organised similarly to last year in which there will two races on Saturday and Sunday. A single qualifying will be at the start of those days and determines the grid for race one.

Last year the series attracted a number of quality drivers who wanted to test out the machinery in preparation for the new season. Once again the Tatuus-Cosworth machine will be use over the four races.

The 2015 season saw Ben Barnicoat collect the trophy with Fortec Motorsports. It proved to be an enticing finale that saw Barnicoat take on his Formula Renault 2.0 rival Harrison Scott. Despite narrowly losing out on the title, it proved to be an important two rounds for Douglas Motorsport who have used the data to help their current drivers compete for the title this season.

A budget has not yet been announced, but interested drivers are urged to contact the existing teams.
