A prize for “most improved driver” will be introduced to the British Formula 4 championship next season, the series has confirmed.

The prize – consisting of a set of tyres for testing – will be awarded to the driver at each event to make up the most positions in races 1 and 3.

Drivers will also be competing for tests, funded seasons, and thousands of pounds in prize money.

“The Ford EcoBoost-powered series has garnered a reputation for being one of the hardest FIA-sanctioned Formula 4 championships to win, with rewards for success reflecting that,” the series said in a press release.

“These prizes reflect Ford’s continued commitment to supporting the next generation of drivers and engineers in reaching the pinnacle of motorsport, a commitment further underlined by keeping entry and registration costs fixed since the championship’s inception as MSA Formula in 2015.”

The 2019 F4 champion will receive a fully-funded test with a European Formula 3 test and 12 superlicense points.

Once again, the Rookie Cup winner will be awarded free entry into the 2020 Formula 4 championship.

The first driver to win all three races in a single weekend – a feat so far only accomplished by 2017 champion Jamie Caroline – will be awarded £10,000 while the first rookie to take an overall race victory will earn £5000, with both prizes provided by series engine manufacturer Ford.

As well as the “most improved” driver prize, a prize for the team that takes pole position will also be awarded at each meeting.

Finally, the top technician at each round will receive a £300 voucher, while the top technician at the end of the year will receive a Snap-on tool box.
