Event Format

The GB3 Championship is run by MotorSport Vision's racing arm, MSVR, and comprises 24 races across eight events.

The weekend format typically includes a 20 minute qualifying session and two 20 minute races followed by a 25 minute final race featuring a reverse grid.

The grid for the first is set in qualifying order, while the grid for the second is in order of each driver's second fastest lap. The race three starting order will be the reverse order of the fastest times achieved in qualifying prior to any penalties applied during or following qualifying. To be included in the reversal, each driver’s fastest lap time in qualifying needs to be within 103% of the overall fastest lap. Such a format provides exciting racing, the opportunity for drivers to develop overtaking skills.

The minimum licence requirement for the GB3 Championship is FIA International C. Testing is unrestricted.

Points are scored from 35 for a win to 1 for 20th using the following system in races one and two each weekend. This same system is used for events with a fourth race:

1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th
35 29 24 21 19 17 15 13 12 11
11th 12th 13th 14th 15th 16th 17th 18th 19th 20th
10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

In the reverse grid race three, points are scored from 20 for a win to 1 for 15th using the following system:

1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th
20 17 15 13 11
6th 7th 8th 9th 10th
10 9 8 7 6
11th 12th 13th 14th 15th
5 4 3 2 1

In addition to these, points are also awarded in race three for positions gained during the race. So for example, if a driver started eighth and finished first, they would gain seven points, making for a total of 27 points.
