The inaugural British F3 iRacing Championship gets underway on Sunday (17 May) with a packed grid of current and former F3 drivers, plus promise of some surprise names making appearances throughout the five-round series.
All the action will be streamed live every Sunday from 6pm BST for the next five weeks on the official British F3 Facebook page and YouTube channel, in association with Apex Racing TV. Popular commentator Mark Werrell will be on hand to offer his insight and expertise as the championship unfolds.

Each round consists of practice, qualifying and two 20-minute races, the second a full reverse grid, and the top two drivers in each team will earn team points.
The championship runs until Sunday 14 June, with visits to circuits including Spa in Belgium and a final round on the Grand Prix layout at Donington Park:
