The 2021 Australian Formula 3 Championship calendar has been confirmed, the category administration announcing a six-round fixture covering four states in a well spaced year of racing.

The entire 2021 championship will be conducted at Australian Motor Racing Series (AMRS) events as was planned in 2020 before the Covid-19 pandemic, under the auspices of the Australian Auto Sport Alliance (AASA). Australian Formula 3 Director Ian Richards said the AMRS provides a perfect platform for the championship.

“As Australia’s leading ‘wings and slicks’ championship with a consecutive history dating back to 1999, we have found the ideal home with the Australian Motor Racing Series and the AASA sanctioning body,” Richards said. “The AMRS and AASA provide high quality administration, excellent race meeting management, and exceptionally good value motor sport for all competitors.”

The 2021 Season is more spaced out than previous years allowing competitors the convenience and luxury of time between race meetings to ensure ample preparation for each round. Key rounds include the Rose City Cup for round 3 of the Championship at Winton Raceway, the City of Goulburn Cup at Wakefield Park for round 5 and the Grand Finale at The Bend in December.

The Australian Formula 3 Championship has a rich history, having provided a breeding ground for drivers who have gone on to successful professional careers in national and international motorsport. Graduates since the series’ inception have included Tim Macrow, James Winslow, Michael Caruso, Will Power and Todd Hazelwood.

In more recent times, other talented drivers have used the category’s high-grip, high-downforce attributes as a springboard to success. The 2017 champion Calan Williams will line up again for next year’s FIA F3 Championship (a support category for Formula 1 Grands Prix), while the 2018 series runner-up Cameron Shields has spent the year racing in the US in the Road to Indy program.

Richards said the 2021 Championship is already looking extremely competitive, with strongest interest in years from a number of younger drivers, and the prospect of more newer machine coming into the country with the addition of the Dallara F312/16 to the series from next.
