For All Featured content on Wikipedia, see Wikipedia:Featured content

Some of the content supported by WikiProject British Motorsport has reached featured article, featured list or featured picture status (FA, FL and FP, respectively), meaning they are amongst the very best content in Wikipedia. Also included here are articles that are either featured article candidates (FAC), FAC's that failed, those that have undergone peer review (PR) as part of an effort to get them to FA status, and those that have achieved good article (GA) status, the next-highest level of quality.

Significant Championships[edit]

Article Standards[edit]


All circuits and motor racing venues in the United Kingdom should have an article written about them. In addition they should all be part of Category:Motor racing venues in the United Kingdom. All circuit layout images should ideally be in .svg format in the same style as used for Formula One circuits (See Oulton Park as an example)

  • At the top, use the Motorsport venue infobox:


  • Driver articles included in this project are all drivers of British nationality, and all drivers that have competed in British championships for an extended period of time. There is no set criteria for this, however someone like Yvan Muller who competed in BTCC for several seasons should qualify for this whilst an F1 driver who takes part in the British Grand Prix should not. All articles on BTCC drivers should be part of Category:British Touring Car Championship drivers and should contain the appropriate infobox. All articles on F1 drivers should be part of category Category:Formula One drivers and contain the infobox: {{Infobox F1 driver}} .


  • All British F1 teams should have the F1 team infobox at the top.
  • All British teams should have the Infobox motor racing team at the top.
