FIA wants older F3 championships to drop the name

Oh, dear, these guys are getting paranoic:

Quote:
National Formula 3 championships in Europe - including the British - have been warned by the FIA that they may not be able to use the 'F3' name, AUTOSPORT understands.

Sources indicate that the MSA received a letter before Christmas in which the FIA expressed surprise that it endorses the use of the 'F3' name, because its championship does not conform to current F3 regulations.

It is understood that the DMSB, which sanctions the German F3 Cup, has received a similar communication.


Frits van Amersfoort believes that the FIA is attempting to force all championships to adopt the new rules. "They are trying to get everything under one umbrella and I think that's important," he said, "but I can't understand why people with older cars and engines can't call themselves F3.


"It is vital that the British and the German series (pictured) can keep the name 'F3' - it's the most important thing the series have.


The Spanish-sanctioned European F3 Open, which uses spec Toyota engines, has already opted for a name change that will be announced on Friday February 14. Jesus Pareja explained that he had decided not to challenge the FIA, despite a long-standing tacit agreement with the governing body to use the F3 name.
(I meant "older")

They are trying to "motivate" the championships to adopt the new engine rules. It's their brand name, so it's not surprising. Everything should be clear for next year's Macau.

The regulations are made by the FIA, they do not ask for any advice or comments. The concept of the engine is good but to change initially is expensive so let us wait until the new engines have run for a year or so.

The most absurd thing about this, if you had to take this "rule" to the letter, the European championship and Macau GP wouldn't have been allowed to use the "F3" moniker in 2013, since they weren't using the latest-spec engines that the Japanese were already using at the time...

It seems that FIA only supports FIA F3.

British F3 and German F3 series want to be F3 but keep running with classic cars. What about F3 European Open? Pareja's gang turn it into a F3.2 category. FIA to support the real F3 championships only.

3F cup?

FIA clearly think nitpicking is a good way to fix all the problems in single seater motorsport....

How silly, sounds more like something Bernie would say about events like F1 Stock Car and F1 Powerboat racing.

I really doubt there is any confusion, anyone who follows F3 will know what the different series offer.

As I understand it, international series (such as British F3 or the German F3 Cup) have to be registered with the FIA and as a consequence, they get an influence over the name. National competitions only have to be registered with the MSA, meaning that this request should not have an impact (and by extension the Classic, Historic and 500cc F3 competitions).

So SRO are ignoring the FIAs directive, hopefully the other ones will aswell and the FIA will have to accept it

Good for them. Two fingers up to Berger and his cronies. People should stand up to bullies.
