But the mainstream is those non-Dallara F3 series

Always the great beauty of F3 was that there were several series worldwide that were basically all the same.

Now there are going to be something like ten series, of at least five different specs! Madness.

One has to admit, the "Regional F3" formulas (i.e., more powerful f4 cars) have been hugely popular. Maybe it really is the future?

Regional F3 cars use off the shelf 2.0 turbos (for instance, F3 Americas use the Civic Type R engine, while American F4 uses the base model Civic engine -- both stock block, off the shelf engines) which has to cut costs drastically compared to the highly tuned racing versions of engines used in classic F3, surely?

International F3 can be rebranded GP3. There is a clear distinct in the level and cost of Regional F3 and International F3.

One would have loved to retain classic F2 as an open formula, but ultimately F3000 -- which unfortunately ultimately became spec -- and GP2 has proved hugely popular, and eventually rebranded as F2 again. Much as Japan initially stuck with the old F2 rules, they will also stick with "classic" F3 for the time being too.

whilst i agree with you and i think standardising the formula renault level stuff is a good idea, i'm not sure it is the future in the uk - brdc f3 teeters on the brink despite a decent car, reasonably priced tyres and not completely daft running costs. granted, it's not the current spec regional f3, but it may as well be.

but maybe we can't support anything more expensive than f4 here any more.

i dunno, a combination of budgets being too high and drivers not having the money, and finding the career prospects better in stuff with a roof on like ginettas, touring cars and gt racing?

Let there be light! but how about the drivers being looking for F1 style tracks instead of hitting post-war racing circuits?

I know it's way too early, it's just November 2018 but the speculation for drivers and where to go has already started for '19.

Prema: Schwartzman, Armstrong & Daruvala
ART GP/Renault Jr.: Lundgaard, Fewtrell, Drugovich
HiTech: Vips, Ahmed, Fenestraz

When do they start testing, after the Abu Dhabi GP? With GP3 cars?

not sure, but this from autosport:

Quote:
Testing of the new car has already began - an initial run on October 11 took place at a French racing school near Magny-Cours, before two weeks of testing on the former F1 track.

The series is planning more tests to "ensure that a reliable car will be delivered to the teams".

The first car for each team will be delivered in mid-January, followed by their second and third machines in February.

There will be an initial group shake-down in February - with one car per team allowed to participate - for drivers to acclimatise to the new machinery.
the car is far too far away from how f3 cars look at the moment, which is pretty disappointing. it just seems to be an evolution of the gp3 car?

This car and these new series give bad name to F3. Shame on you FIA.
