SCCA Pro Racing announced the dates for the inaugural F3 Americas Championship Powered by Honda season.

The 2018 calendar features six tripleheader race weekends, visiting prestigious open wheel tracks in North America with stops at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course Series and Circuit of The Americas supporting the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix in Texas.

According to officials, the F3 Americas series continues the evolution of affordable, competitive and technologically advanced open wheel racing which was established by the successful F4 US Championship that debuted in 2016.

Since its reveal at Circuit of The Americas (COTA) last October, the new series has generated significant interest in the racing community. Seventy-two chassis purchase agreements have already been sent to teams and drivers.

Featuring an all-new F3-FIA spec Ligier JS F3 race car chassis that is built and developed by Onroak Automotive in North Carolina, the F3 Americas car will run on Pirelli tires. The cars will also be powered by a 270-horsepower Honda Performance Development (HPD) version of the new Honda Civic Type-R turbocharged K20C1 motor.

The F3 Americas Championship aligns with the global FIA development ladder philosophy of using common components to provide a cost-efficient, reliable and powerful racing structure as drivers ascend through the levels on their way to US, or global, racing success.
