Formula V8 heads to USA for 2017

The Formula V8 3.5 Championship will head to the USA and Mexico as part of its World Endurance Championship support deal.
The 2017 Formula V8 3.5 Championship will feature a round in the United States and Mexico next season as part of its new support series status to the FIA World Endurance Championship.

Though the former Renault-backed series has struggled for entries since it came under new ownership ahead of the 2016 season, a new deal that will see it feature on the support schedule for the WEC is expected to give the championship a boost next year.

Speaking at the Monza round of the Formula V8 series, Jaime Alguersuari Snr – president of FV8 3.5 promoter RPM – revealed the extent to which this new deal goes, with a round at the Circuit of the Americas and in Mexico City, as well as Bahrain.

COTA replaces Fuji, which has been dropped on the cost grounds. FV8 is also set to visit Silverstone, Spa and the Nurburgring.
