The CAMS Australian Formula 4 Championship has released its sporting regulations for the category's inaugural season next year as the deadline for entries fast approaches.
Set to be launched in June/July next year, the championship features identical Mygale F4 chassis in 21 races held over seven meetings.
Registrations to join the championship are due to close on November 28 with only two teams, AGI Sport and Team BRM, confirmed to run cars at the time of writing.
With the registration deadline looming, CAMS General Manager of Motor Sport Development Cameron McConville is urging prospective competitors to sign up.
“We urge teams or competitors to register now as there has been strong interest to date, said McConville.
“We would be disappointed if anyone who was considering being part of this exciting venture was to miss out, as essentially Australian motor sport history is being created here.”
The regulations have confirmed competitors must be at least 15 years of age to enter and only drivers aged 19 or under will be eligible for the $250,000 financial award for winning the championship.
The prize fund will decrease to $150,000 if only 15 of the 20 car licenses are sold.
Drivers can only compete in the category for a maximum of three calendar years.
Engines will also be sealed for the entire season to prevent any modification while an engine change will incur a 10 place grid drop for the next three races.
The penalty will be dropped if the change is the result of a technical failure confirmed by a CAMS Technical Delegate.
Each driver may use no more than one engine for the entire championship including all events and official tests in which the team competes.
The starting order for the first race will be set by the order in qualifying.
The top 10 finishers from opening race will be reversed to form the grid for race two, while the final grid of the weekend will be determined by second fastest times in qualifying.
The full calendar, engine and tyre suppliers are yet to be revealed.
