Doing its debut last month, the F3 Asian Championship is kicking-off a Winter Series to be run on January and February 2019, organizer Top Speed announced. The three, triple-header rounds will be raced in Thailand's Buriram Circuit and Malaysia’s Sepang, the one that is already considered the "home" of Asian F3.
Commenting on the announcement, Top Speed General Manager Davide De Gobbi said, "Given the enormous excitement generated by the F3 Asian Championship Certified by FIA, adding a Winter Series makes perfect sense for many reasons. Primarily it will give both our existing and new drivers the opportunity to prepare ahead of the 2019 season. In addition, it will provide drivers from anywhere in the world the opportunity to experience the brilliant new-era of single-chassis, single-engine regional Formula 3.”
The F3 Asian Championship Winter Series will in this way join the race program of the Asian Le Mans Series, on the weekends of January 13 in Thailand and February 24 in Malaysia, while paring with the GT Masters Asia in Malaysia on January 20, attracting more attentions and spectators.
