Champions keep playing until they get it right.

Formula 3 has always been a breeding ground for Champions and the vast majority of top drivers from Europe, South America and Japan over the last forty years made their name racing these wonderful cars. The pictures on the right are a roll call of World Champions all of whom first drew attention to themselves with their F3 successes.

It’s not only F3 drivers whose names resonate through motorsport history: Lotus, Brabham, March, Chevron, Ralt, Dallara, Martini are just some of the manufacturers that have won a huge number of races through the first five decades that F3 has been part of the racing scene.
