The Tatuus BF3-020 BRDC British F3 Car
The BRDC British F3 car is to be upgraded for the 2020 season with revised bodywork and safety improvements, plus a new engine from Mountune Racing.
The powerful car benefits from a sophisticated aerodynamic package and increased downforce, elevating its pace to nearer FIA F3 levels.
The car utilises a carbon-fibre Tatuus chassis and is powered by a brand new 2-litre 230bhp bespoke Mountune engine. The car meets all the latest safety regulations including side impact panels, a machined-from-solid front anti-intrusion panel, front and rear carbon impact structures, wheel tethers and extractable seat.
Improved aerodynamics include a highly adjustable front-wing, which is upgraded for 2020 with a revised installation and new endplates to increase downforce and set-up variation. The two piece rear-wing is also updated with revised profiles for the carbon fibre main plane and flap, and angled back endplates. An F1-style front splitter and rear diffuser ensures the car provides the most downforce in class.
A revised engine cover with a fin along the spine will increase the rear wing efficiency, while barge boards in front of the side pods add to the modern look.
It features a six-speed sequential gearbox with paddle shift provided by Sadev and fitted with a limited-slip differential, unique to BRDC British F3.
An Indycar-style fin in front of the driver will act as a secondary roll structure as well as deflecting debris away from the driver.
Pirelli provides both dry and wet tyres to British Formula 3 Championship.
The braking system is supplied by AP Racing and features 4-piston front calipers and floating, grooved and ventilated discs with 2-piston rear caliper and fixed vented rear disc.
Twin wishbone suspension with two-way adjustable dampers and adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars will provide drivers with plenty of scope for set-up chang
