The work of Dave Amey who had worked at the Arrows and Spirit F1 teams the VF3-T88A was designed around a carbonfibre/aluminium honeycomb tub. Suspension was pushrod all round and a TOM’s Toyota engine was fitted. The car was never competitive and many felt it had been over engineered for F3 as it was also designed with F3000 in mind. During the year both Tommy “Slim” Borgudd and Roland Ratzenburger tested the car but it seems they could make it go no better than regular pilot Bob Berridge.
A modified VF3-T89A was built and tested the following year but never raced and the whole project was sold off to be used by someone in Sprinting.
