The new Formula 3 Euro Series is go. With the approval of the sporting and technical regulations in Paris, the DMSB and the FFSA finalised the conditions for a successful start of the new junior race series, that will be taking place in five European countries.

Given the enormous potential of the FIA-approved Formula 3 Euro Series, with races in Germany, France, Italy, Austria and The Netherlands, drivers, teams and fans already are upbeat and expectations are running high. The main characteristics of the sporting and the technical regulations were approved by representatives of the DMSB and the FFSA at a strategic meeting in Paris and were sent out to the teams, who are now working flat out to prepare their cars for the new series. The organisers already have received entries of 21 competitors for the first test that will be taking place at the Adria International Raceway in Italy on February 20 and 21.

Following many demands, the DMSB and the FFSA have laid out the sporting regulations in such a way, that single-car-teams are also allowed for the 2003 season. Thus, the DMSB and the FFSA also allow smaller teams to compete in the new Formula 3 Euro Series.

The Formula 3 Euro Series is supporting the DTM and the FFSA Super Serie and thus provides attractive marketing opportunities for its teams and partners. The new series will be well presented in television, too: live broadcast of all the rounds is planned both in Germany and France with additional magazine-formats. Further broadcasting stations from all around the world, from Portugal to Brazil and Japan, have already shown their interest and want to report about the Formula 3 Euro Series regularly.

The future-orientated concept of the Formula 3 Euro Series appears to be convince the sponsors as well. With wheel manufacturer ATS, expert organisation DEKRA and tyre manufacturer Kumho, three major partners are on board already. Kumho has already been the official tyre partner of the French Formula 3 Championship, while ATS and DEKRA were most recently involved in the International German Formula 3 Championship. All of them are seeing a great potential for the future in the Formula 3 Euro Series.

The premiere of the Formula 3 Euro Series, that will have ten rounds with two races each, will be taking place at the Hockenheimring, April 26 and 27, 2003. The season final is scheduled at the Grand Prix-track of Magny-Cours in France, October 25 and 26, 2003.
