British F3 promoters SRO have unveiled a provisional calendar for the 2014 season of the series, featuring six local rounds and a solitary foreign outing at Spa-Francorchamps.

Next year’s season is set to kick off at Rockingham, during the weekend of May 3-4, with the final round scheduled to take place on 13-14 September at Donington.

Apart from the rounds at Spa, Brands-Hatch and Silverstone (which were retained from the shortened 2013 calendar), as well as the aforementioned Donington and Rockingham, the series will also pay a visit to Snetterton and Thruxton.

The weekend format will be left unchanged from the 2013 season, featuring three 30-minute races per round.

“The new look British F3 series requires a committed and consistent approach with stability key for building it a lasting future, that is something SRO is fully committed to”, stated the promoter company’s CEO Stephane Ratel. “This calendar has been created in consultation with the teams and FOTA and we believe it is an exciting prospect for new and existing drivers and teams, and the addition of Thruxton to the calendar after several years is something we know will help attract new entries into British F3. It is important for British F3 to grow-up and find it’s place in this new era of motorsport. This calendar and the details we announced in Spa in July are the correct course of action to allow it to mature and not just preserve its existing heritage, but add new champions and create more history”.
