BlackArts Racing joins F3 Asian Championship for 2018

BlackArts Racing is pleased to announce that the team will join the upcoming 2018 F3 Asian Championship, which is certificated by FIA last month.

After triumphing the team championship of both Asian Renault Formula and Chinese F4 Championship, BlackArts Racing has decided to make its foray into the inaugural F3 Asian championship and further improve the driver development program.

Adopting the new FIA F3 single chassis and engine concept, the F3 Asian Championship will comply with the latest FIA safety specifications, including the new Halo device. It will have a six-speed paddle shift gear box and will be powered by a single-make 270hp turbo engine.

As an active promoter of Asian formula races, BlackArts Racing has been able to provide the young talented driver with a more professional training environment.

Beginning this summer with an official test on July 9 and 10, the inaugural F3 regional Asian championship calendar includes 15 races- three at each of the five rounds- at Malaysia’s Sepang International Circuit, China’s Ningbo International Speedway and the Shanghai International Circuit. Also, the series will carry FIA Super licenses points for the champion.

BlackArts Racing is a fast growing and competitive team, winning the team championship of AFR three times in a row and both driver championship and team championship of Chinese F4 in 2017. The expansion to F3 Asian series is a hugely positive step of BAR’s driver development program of the team that team will offer professional training with its experienced coaching team to advance the drivers’ skills and compete at a higher level.
