The third race will be a full grid reversal with extra points awarded for positions gained as well as for each driver’s finishing position. All scores count towards a driver’s end of championship position.

The minimum age to compete in GB4 is 15, with the minimum licence requirement being Race Club. Testing is unrestricted.

A comprehensive prize package will be on offer, including a £50,000 prize fund for the championship winner towards their next single seater campaign the following season.
