Round 1 of the 2020 Australian Formula 3 Championships has been delayed further due to border restrictions, though there is now light at the end of the tunnel.

With Covid border restrictions still in place between Queensland, NSW and Victoria, Australian Formula 3 Management have had no alternative other than to move round 1 of the 2020 Championship back to Queensland Raceway scheduled for the 23rd-25th of October. The Australian Motor Racing Series (ARMS) is going ahead with their round at Sydney Motorsport Park this week, though it is only for local competitors and as such, most of the current Australian Formula 3 teams would be unable to attend. "Even though the Sydney AMRS round is going ahead for the local drivers, it would be unfair to effectively exclude teams from attending the round due to the borders." Category manager Ian Richards said.

There does appear to be light at the end of the tunnel though with the SA/NSW borders set to open and NSW/QLD borders likely to open in the near future. "We are increasingly confident we will be able to get our championship off the ground at Queensland Raceway in October" Richards added.

This would result in a 3 round championship across 3 states at this point in time. "We obviously want to get in as much racing as possible so we are exploring as many options as possible."

Teams and drivers have been keeping their skills tuned with various methods including virtual racing and local state rounds with Queensland drivers Shane Wilson, Roman Krumins, Ryan Astley and newcomer Chris Purvis either in action recently or will be on track this weekend.
