The British Formula Ford Championship is an entry level single seater motor sport category, which gives many racing drivers their first step into car racing after karting. Currently known as the Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain, it attracts drivers from across the world who move to the United Kingdom to compete. The championship has been run to various regulations over the years, often based on the engines provided for the championship by Ford Motor Company. These engine based regulations/specifications include the Ford Kent engine, Ford Zetec engine, Ford Duratec engine and most recently, the Ford EcoBoost engine. Several former drivers have become successful in Formula One, including Eddie Irvine and Anthony Davidson, whilst Formula Ford champions Ayrton Senna and Jenson Button also went on to win the Formula One Drivers' Championship.
