Series information

The MSA Formula, which replaces British Formula Ford, is all new to the 2015 race calendar. As powered by Ford, the championship will be powered by the 1.6-litre Eco-Boost engines tuned to deliver the FIA’s maximum permitted 160 PS.

MSA Formula cars will race on Hankook slick tyres identical in compound and construction to those employed in the FIA European F3 Championship. This will allow drivers to gain further experience of the tyres and their characteristics ahead of their next step up the FIA’s racing career ladder.

MSA Formula is the only championship that meets the technical criteria which will permit 15-year-old drivers to race in certain circumstances, allowing young drivers to develop their already promising driving skills.

MSA Formula will be contested over 30 races in 2015 as the single-seater support series to the UK’s premier motorsport package, the British Touring Car Championship. The season kicks off in early April and takes in events at all of the UK’s leading race circuits: Brands Hatch, Donington Park, Thruxton, Oulton Park, Croft, Snetterton, Knockhill, Rockingham and Silverstone.
