British F3 International Series to continue on SRO F3/GT package
Today the Stephane Ratel Organisation (SRO) has reached an agreement with the Formula Three Association (FOTA) to renew their commitment to the package that will see the British F3 International Series continue to be part of the SRO promoted British F3/GT package for the next three years.
Stephane Ratel said: “I’m delighted to announce that SRO will continue to promote and organise the British F3 International Series. We are committed to developing the series and have agreed with the teams to look at circuits that will provide driver development, with the possibility of more European races on F1 circuits. SRO is happy to have created a package that the teams believe is in the interests of British F3 and we look forward to working closely with them.”
Jeremy Lord, on behalf of FOTA, said: “There had been some uncertainty about the future of British F3 after the end of the 2008 season. However the teams have now reached an understanding with SRO to continue to work together to reinforce the British F3 International Series as the leading Formula 3 category. The teams provide a professional racing environment that attracts the best young drivers from around the world and SRO will provide the structure and calendar that will enable them to realise their potential.”
