FIA Confirms New Single-Make F3 Category For 2019

The FIA will introduce a new single-make Formula 3 in 2019 for cars producing 350bhp.

As revealed by Autosport recently, the governing body's F3 European championship will make way for a new FIA Formula 3 International championship, as voted for on Thursday by the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC).

The WMSC stated that expressions of interest are invited to tender for the chassis manufacturer, the engine supplier and a promoter.

The grid will be limited to 24 cars, comprising eight teams running three cars each.

The calendar will consist of nine or 10 events, with two races—rather than the existing three of the European championship - per weekend.

Testing, meanwhile, will be “limited and regulated.”

The FIA also revealed plans for its regional F3 concept.

Like Formula 4, this is open to multiple chassis and engines, but with each championship featuring a single supply of chassis, engines and tires. The power-output target is 220-240bhp.
