The Artline Formula 3 team are hoping to join the FIA European Formula 3 Championship during the season after finally passing their mandatory crash tests.
The team were hoping to come on board in the series full-time in 2015, but delayed their tests until the end of March so they could give the ARTTech P315 proper factory testing.
Artline have now revealed they have been given FIA clearance to race later this season, and hope to test their car for the first time before the end of May, with the team believing the chassis shows signs of having promise at this stage of its development.
“We are happy to announce that the car has been deemed compliant with the current F3 Technical Regulations and has become ArtLine’s first ever internationally certified racing car,” read a statement from the team.
The team are hopeful of joining the series later during the season, with drivers to be announced at a later date when they have revealed their début event with the P315, with the team confirming they will race with NBE engines.
