The Tatuus MSV-022 car

The Tatuus MSV-022 car is run by every team in the GB3 Championship, and meets the latest safety standards whilst elevating the performance levels to new heights.

MSV’s existing partner, Tatuus, supplies the chassis, which incorporates the halo and improved side-impact protection, plus revisions to the roll hoop, headrest, front anti-intrusion panel, seat and fuel cell areas.

The aerodynamics package features a completely revised underfloor, diffuser, skid block, keel and bib, plus changes to the side pods, radiator ducts, damper cover and engine cover. Downforce levels are increased significantly compared to previous generation machinery.

A highly rated two litre, four cylinder normally aspirated Mountune engine produces over 250bhp at 8500 rpm, a 20bhp increase on the previous specification. As a consequence of the power hike the Tatuus MSV-022 features a side air-intake and carbon airbox similar to earlier generation F3 cars, and a switch to a fly-by-wire port throttle inlet manifold system.

The engine package is mounted to the well-proven Sadev six-speed gearbox, while the robust suspension, brakes and electronics all contribute to the outstanding reliability of the car.

Crucially, the car remains lightweight, nimble and responsive, characteristics that have been praised by drivers since the inception of the series.
