GP3 Series Teams Receive Final Car for 2010
Meaning they can begin testing the new cars from as early as next month's test meeting at Circuit Paul Ricard, scheduled between March 4 and 5. In other words, the teams will have 2 more weeks in hand to make the necessary adjustments to their new single-seaters, before debuting them on the track.
“I’m pleased to say that we have been able to keep to schedule on all stages of the new GP3 car development, fabrication and delivery to the teams. Now we can’t wait to see the drivers and teams in action,” said the GP3 organizer and boss of the GP2 Series Bruno Michel.
“GP3 will run alongside Formula One and GP2 offering an incredible and unique chance for young drivers to get experience and be seen and monitored throughout the season by the motorsport experts. Therefore, I believe that for young and talented drivers with ambition joining the Series is the best opportunity to pave the way for their future,” added the French official.
According to the same press release, the new series will also benefit from a brand new website from as soon as the first test kicks off at Paul Ricard.
As far as the new car goes, the GP3 competition single-seater has been previously tested by F1 veteran Mark Webber during November last year. The chassis manufacturer for the GP3 Series is Dallara, the engine manufacturer is Renault F1 Team (the powerplants will be built at the Viry-Chatillon factory) and the tires will be provided by Pirelli.
