Along with experienced engineers guiding the drivers through every step this process the championship provides an invaluable start to a junior racing career all the while offering drivers a thorough understanding of the cars before moving on to a higher race category. It provides a fantastic stepping stone onward to the GP3, GP2 and IndyLights Series.

The FIA Formula Three European Championship visits a variety of high profile tracks, many of which are past or current Formula One venues, and features regularly on the same weekend programme as the highly esteemed DTM Championship as well as the World Touring Car Championship.
