Australian Formula 3 cars will continue to be the fastest circuit racing vehicles competing nationally, following a change to the Hankook brand as the contracted tyre supplier for the 2017 Australian Formula 3 Premier Series.

Formula 3 Management spokesperson Mike Drewer said today that it was expected that the F3 cars would be even quicker on Hankook rubber as opposed to the previously used Kuhmo tyres.

“The Hankook tyre to be used by F3 is the same size and compound as the current F4 tyre, and Gary Harrison from Gary’s Motorsport Tyres is confident that there will be a performance gain resulting in even quicker lap times, Drewer said.

Hankook distributors will supply a tyre service to competitors at all 2017 Australian Formula 3 Premier Series rounds

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.
