2. 3 GP3 Series™ was designed to reflect 5 core values. The sporting and technical regulations are the blue print of the championship and are only changed if the proposed modifications fit into the template formed by theses values, which remain the guiding principles of the GP3 Series™ . Performance With GP3 lap times beating those of its nearest rivals, it was clear from the outset that we were never going to be just another championship in the ever expanding pool of junior formulae. Over 400HP engines, and no hidden snazzy gadgets like traction control or power steering, means it’s all about the driver with these machines. We’ve also been told they’re a lot of fun to drive! Cost control Just like our sister Series GP2, GP3 races on the same tracks, on the same weekends and for the same crowds as Formula One™ with the same impressive display of racing – but for a minute fraction of the cost. Centralised purchasing, strict limits on testing and an outright ban on individual developments means costs are kept in check, while all modifications are made with an eye on how they affect the price structure for the teams. THE VALUES The Series The Values From GP3 to GP2 and Formula 1 Technical Side The Regulations Race Weekend Structure 2015 Season 2014 TV Right Holders TV Broadcast Summary The Official Website The Insider The Social Media Entertainment By far GP3’s biggest selling point is the excitement its races provide for the fans. With two races per weekend, reverse grids and identical cars on display, the series never fails to enthral and entertain. There is also the added bonus of being able to catch the Formula One™ race after GP3 has packed up for the day! Safety Racing at such high speeds means safety is of course of the uppermost priority: the GP3 car has passed every one of the stringent F1™ FIA tests. GP2 has been committed to safety over the last six years; something we have ensured is mirrored in the GP3 Series™ . Preparation The record speaks for itself: there has never been an F1 feeder category as successful as the GP2 Series™ with over half of the 2014 Formula 1™ grid consisting of GP2 graduates. GP3 is following in the footsteps of its big sister series with three of our GP3 Champions already reaching the pinnacle of Formula One™ which is high praise indeed. Six drivers have earned test/development roles also in Formula One™ with 16 drivers graduating to GP2.
