Australian Formula 3 has always played a pivotal role in developing young Australian talent towards their ultimate motorsport goal. From Will Power who went on to win the Indycar Championship and Indy 500, Mitch Evans who won in GP2 narrowly missing a Formula 1 seat and is now a Formula E winner, to a large number of current Australian Supercar drivers.

McDonalds Gilmour Racing has played a big part of producing young talent in recent years with their two recent drivers Calan William (2017 Champion) and Cameron Shields (2018 runner-up) currently racing in Europe and America chasing their respective Formula 1 and Indycar goals. This year team principle Errol Gilmour is fostering more young talent with Josh Buchan making the step up from Formula Ford. Josh has shown great speed in the first two rounds running consistently in the top 3.

Two more young drivers have invested in their futures by purchasing their own Formula 3 machinery, Rielly Brook running a Mygale M07 in the Championship class and Ryan Astley a Dallara F304 in the National class. Brook had a difficult round 1 at Winton with car issues however managed to work his way through resolving the issues to become well on the pace in round 2 at Morgan Park. Astley has also showed great promise learning to drive a genuine wings and slicks car proving to be very competitive in the National class.

Formula 3 has been an integral part of the pathway to Formula 1 for over two decades now with the winning driver of 21 of the past 25 Formula 1 World Championships all having competed in Formula 3.
