The 2013 Dunlop MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain is a multi-event, open-wheel single seater motor racing championship held across England and Scotland. The championship features a mix of professional motor racing teams and privately funded drivers, competing in Formula Ford cars that conform to the technical regulations for the championship. This season will see the championship adopt a single class format, with all drivers using the latest cars built to the Formula Ford EcoBoost specification. There is also an award for the highest placed Rookie. It will be the 37th British Formula Ford season and will return to the TOCA tour to form part of the extensive program of support categories built up around the BTCC centrepiece.[1]

The season will commence on 31 March at Brands Hatch – on the circuit's Indy configuration – and will conclude on 13 October at the same venue, utilising the Grand Prix circuit, after thirty races to be held at ten meetings, all in support of the 2013 British Touring Car Championship.

Championship changes[edit]

Along with the move to support the BTCC,[1] the championship will undergo several other technical changes. The championship will adopt the new Formula Ford EcoBoost 200 regulations, which will include an increase in the EcoBoost engine power from the previous season, along with the new addition of a fully adjustable aerodynamic package which includes front and rear wings previously never seen before in the British Formula Ford Championship.[2] In late October 2012, the series organisers announced that from this season Duratec class cars will be ineligible for the championship, leaving only the EcoBoost class.[3]

Drivers and teams[edit]

All teams are British-registered.
