Rain forced the organisers not to run the fourth round of the championship at Silverstone today. Overnight rain had made the circuit damp for the day's first race but a torrential downpour early in the afternoon made the track extremely dangerous.

After several delays to allow circuit inspections by the safety team, and a brief period where the rain appeared to ease, more heavy rain forced the organisers to cancel the event and stop all racing activities for the day.

Although there not yet been any official announcement it is likely that the race, for which Danilo Dirani had qualified in pole position ahead of Will Power and Nelson Piquet, may be included as part of another British Formula 3 meeting later this season.
