There are a wide number of different championships running at Formula 3 level around the world, headed by the FIA Formula 3 Championship that supports Formula 1. Below this, there are official Regional F3 championships covering Europe, America, Asia and Japan – as well as the independent Formula Renault Eurocup and W Series. Others, such as Euroformula and Super Formula Lights, remain faithful to the classic F3 concept.
19-year-old Vicky Piria will switch to European F3 Open this year, partnering Mario Marasca at BVM. Piria will be entering the series in a main class Dallara F312 after scoring her maiden podium in F3 Open in the Winter Series.
