Formula Ford and Formula 3 fit together perfectly, as evidenced by the number of Formula Ford drivers who go on to success in F3, and it is very pleasing that so many of our British championship dates have that association.
“The new EuroCup has an impressive and compact calendar also, at some fantastic tracks and alongside some superb events. The series is attracting considerable interest not only from British teams and drivers seeking to broaden their experience but also from the Benelux and Scandinavian competitors.”
