The Formula 3 Asia Championship is fully certified by the sport's world governing body, the Fédération International de l'Automobile's (FIA). The F3 Asian Championship certified by FIA, has adopted the federation's ground-breaking new single chassis, single engine concept.
According to FIA Director of Single-Seater Championships, Charlie Whiting. The addition of another regional FIA Formula 3 championship will be a hugely positive step in the development of the category around the world. Junior motor sport has been growing rapidly in Asia in recent years, with highly competitive FIA Formula 4 series in China, Japan and South East Asia giving young drivers a better opportunity than ever before to advance their skills and move up to the next level. Now with the F3 Asian Championship certified by FIA, these drivers will have a great place to compete at a regional level.
The F3 Asian Championship represents a substantial boost to the FIA driver development pyramid concept, designed to take drivers from Formula 4 to Formula 1. Formula 4 China, established in 2015, was last year joined by Formula 4 South East Asia and both are expected to be key feeder series for the F3 Asian Championship certified by FIA.
The Tatuus F3 cars comply with the latest FIA specifications and feature a number of enhanced safety features including the new Halo device and improved side impact protection and will have a six-speed paddle shift gear box. It will be powered by a the autotecnica 270hp turbo engine. The tires will be supplied by Giti.
Carrying FIA Super License points for the champion, the series will also include an AM Class and Team Championship.
