The 2014 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, the 38th British Formula Ford season, will be the second year of the 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. Part of the TOCA tour, it forms part of the extensive program of support categories built up around the BTCC centrepiece.[1]

The season will commence on 30 March at Brands Hatch – on the circuit's Indy configuration – and will conclude on 12 October at the same venue, utilising the Grand Prix circuit, after thirty races to be held at ten meetings, all in support of the 2014 British Touring Car Championship.

Championship changes[edit]

To bring the championship into line with many other junior single seater championships, the organisers have announced that the second race of each meeting will be a reverse grid.[2]
