Previous: 2010 Next: none

The 2011 Formula Renault UK season is a multi-event motor racing championship for open wheel, formula racing cars held across England. The championship features a mix of professional motor racing teams and privately funded drivers competing in 2 litre Formula Renault single seat race cars that conform to the technical regulations for the championship. It forms part of the extensive program of support categories built up around the BTCC centrepiece. This season will be the 23rd British Formula Renault Championship.

The season began at Brands Hatch on 3 April and ended on 16 October at Silverstone, after twenty rounds held in England. From the World Series meeting at Silverstone, the series was sponsored by Certina Kurth Frères and presented as the CERTINA Formula Renault 2.0 UK Championship.[1]
