European F3 secures 39 entries for 2016

The European Formula 3 Championship could see as many as 39 cars across 13 teams compete in 2016.
The European Formula 3 Championship could see up to 39 cars on the grid in 2016 after organisers revealed 13 teams have applied to participate.

The series saw a large influx of new entries for 2015, with grids regularly exceeding 30, but this is set to grow even further in 2016, with the pre-registration phase enticing 13 teams to provisionally apply for a total of 39 entries.

Most teams that competed in 2015 will continue next year, with Prema Powerteam, Carlin, Van Amersfoot, Mucke, Signature, Fortec Motopark, West-Tec and Double R each returning, while T-Sport will take a punt on the new Japanese-engineered Tomei engine for its entry.

In addition, Jo Zeller Racing is set to return to the series having raced in 2014, while British team Hitech GP has also announced drivers for its return to the F3 fold. Finally, Italian outfit DAV Racing has also submitted itself for entry.

Dropping off the entry list is Eurointernational, which only competed in four races last season, while the ambitious Russian Artline Engineering project is also missing.
