The 2023 British F4 Esports series is taking shape, with all 15 participating teams announced – including the esports branches of the Williams and Aston Martin Formula 1 teams. 

Now, however, competing squads have also revealed their driver lineups for the upcoming, eight-round iRacing-based series, with returning champion Luke McKeown claiming number one for the 2023 season for his Stormforce Racing ART outfit alongside Peter Berryman. 

Real-world F4 British Championship certified by FIA outfit JHR Developments will also be on the grid, running its JHR by 29 Esports squad for former Praga Cup UK champion (alongside YouTuber Jimmy Broadbent) Gordie Mutch and professional esports racer Stanley Deslandes.

Elsewhere on the grid, Screen to Speed winner Saoirse Fitzpatrick takes a seat alongside Rachel Konkoly in the Prismatic Motorsports entry with Williams and Aston Martin fielding cars for Josh Lad and Moreno Sirica and Manuel Biancolilla and Duncan Hofland respectively. 

GUILD Racing, the esports behemoth partly owned by David Beckham, is intriguingly the only team yet to announce its drivers ahead of the season opener on the 27th of September. 

Championship administration is being conducted by World Sim Racing, with Base Performance Simulators and Wave Italy coming on board as series sponsors, providing prizes for successful teams and drivers.

Teams will be battling across an eight-round championship, taking in some of iRacing’s finest British tracks in the Motorsport UK-backed series, with all races set to be broadcast live on Racespot TV’s YouTube channel.

2023 British F4 Esports feeder series

A feeder series for the championship – the UK FF1600 Esports Cup – has previously been announced, with races set to form part of the main British F4 Esports broadcast. It’s open to anyone with an iRacing subscription – pending a pre-championship time attack with the Ray FF1600 at Oulton Park – with the top 30 qualifying for the championship.

Racers are also required to hold a valid Motorsport UK Esports membership (currently £24.99 per year), complementing the introduction of the organisation’s new Esports Hub.
