Japanese Toshihiro Kaneishi is the International German Formula 3 Champion of 2001. The 22 year old youngster from Osaka is the first Japanese ever who was able to win the highest German single seater championship. At a trial taking place October 23rd, the DMSB's (German Motor Sport Association) appeal court refused the appeal of Opel Team BSR against the disqualification of Frank Diefenbacher at the 20th and last round of the championship because of an overtaking manoeuvre against Pierre Kaffer under yellow. Due to this final decision Frank Diefenbacher loses his points for his second place at the last race of the season and finishes the championship in third position.
