Some of the best races I’ve seen in re­cent years have been the British For­mula 4 slip­stream­ers around Thrux­ton. Sin­gle-seater con­tests at the Hamp­shire speed­bowl are a sure-fire recipe for ex­cite­ment, with the high-speed na­ture of the track mixed with heavy brak­ing zones giv­ing plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties for ex­cite­ment. And, as one of the few slicks and wings cat­e­gories that get chance to com­pete at the venue, the British F4 races are usu­ally spe­cial.

And this year we’re in for a real treat. A side ef­fect of the demise of Rock­ing­ham was the British Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship’s de­ci­sion to visit Thrux­ton twice in 2019. And that means there will be six British F4 con­tests at the venue. Given the close na­ture of the races, and the propen­sity for col­li­sions, that may leave se­ries bosses a lit­tle wor­ried but for the spec­ta­tors, it should be bril­liant.
