Story By: Formula 3 Management  Date: 21/02/2017 at 4:00:00 PM 
The 2017 Australian Formula 3 Premier Series will be conducted over six rounds commencing at The Winton Raceway Open Wheel Festival (Victoria) 13-16 April where competitors will battle for the newly created F3 Rose City Trophy in addition to points for the 2017 Series.

The Formula 3 Premier Series will continue to be coordinated under Formula 3 Management with a revitalised structure agreed by key stakeholders at a meeting held in Adelaide earlier this month.

‘The new structure was formalised with input from key F3 team owners and participants to ensure that top level open-wheeler racing not only survives in Australia, but will expand in the future. Formula 3 is a vital component of the pathway for talented young drivers whether their aspirations be directed to professional motorsport nationally or internationally’, newly appointed Formula 3 Management spokesperson Mike Drewer said today.

The Formula 3 Series Premier Series will also accommodate entries including older F3 chassis and other open-wheelers including Formula 1000, Formula Ford 2000, Formula Renault, Toyota Racing Series, Formula BMW, and similar vehicles.

‘This aspect may sound similar to the still-born Formula A proposal, but in fact allowance for such vehicles has been in the Formula 3 Management regulations for a number of years. We would warmly welcome such cars and competitors to the Formula 3 Premier Series’, Drewer added.

Drewer also said that the tyre contract for the F3 Premier Series was “virtually a done deal” and would be announced shortly.
