The calendar for the 2010 F3 Euroseries schedule has been confirmed, with the season opener set to take place at the Paul Ricard circuit in France.
The event at La Castellet will run alongside the French Le Mans Series and is the only event on the calendar not to be part of a DTM race weekend.
The remaining eight meetings will run with the touring car series with the season finale being held at Hockenheim, the final DTM race of the year in European soil ahead of the trip to China for the final round of the campaign.
“We are delighted with having once again succeeded in creating – in co-operation with FFSA and DMSB – a calendar that is attractive for our young drivers, the media and the motor racing enthusiasts,” Walter Mertes, managing director of the Formel 3 Euro Serie Vermarktungs GmbH said.
Pre-season testing will take place at Barcelona and Valencia next month.
