A field of 19 cars is set for the final round of the Australian Formula 3 Premier Series this weekend at Wakefield Park for the Certica City of Goulburn Cup.

The category will enjoy the support from contracting specialist Certica in a deal that was announced this week.

With both the Premier class and National class 2017 titles already decided, the final round of the series has attracted a number of new drivers keen on sampling Formula 3 machinery as they asses their options for the 2018 season.

Gilmour Racing’s Calan Williams sealed the Premier Class title after main rival John Magro who drove for Alpine Motorsports sat out rounds 4 and 5 after the birth of his daughter.

“The final round of the series will double as the Certica City of Goulburn Cup and my sights are on Pole Position, race wins and if conditions are right having a crack at a lap record for the team.” Williams said.

Formula 3 Australia has again shown its viability to produce world class drivers with Williams heading to Europe to contest the 2018 European Open F3 Championship.

Roman Krumins, driving for R-Tek Motorsport has sealed victory in the National Class. Meanwhile Magro is back this weekend also driving for R-Tek Motorsport.

“I'm really looking forward to driving R-Tek's latest model F308. I haven't driven the latest spec Australian F3 car so it'll be a new challenge getting the most out of the extra downforce.” Magro said.

A number of drivers will be making their Formula 3 debut this weekend with Formula Ford drivers Harri Jones and Josh Behn stepping up.

Rielly Brook is also making his first appearance in a Formula 3 car, Brook has been campaigning his Formula Renault 2.0 this year at selected rounds of the Formula 3 Premier series and has been showing considerable promise and skill with his driving. Brook will be driving the Gilmour Racing Dallara F307.

“We are looking forward to the final round at Wakefield Park on the 20th-22nd October and Gilmour Racing are sure that Riley will perform well” team boss Errol Gilmour said.

Category manager Ian Richards said “It is great to see a significant amount of interest already for next year. We are already working hard on plans for 2018 and hope have further announcements soon”.

Cars take to the track Friday for practice before qualifying and race 1 on Saturday, then races 2 and 3 on Sunday.
