Third and final GP3 delivery complete

Competing teams now have the promised three cars in their possession ahead of first GP3 Series test.

All registered GP3 Series teams have taken delivery of their third and final cars this week, comfortably ahead of the series' first official test at Paul Ricard on 4-5 March.

The teams will now have two weeks to get familiar with their new machines and drivers before they tackle the first session of the season, with an international field already taking shape three weeks ahead of the test.

"I'm pleased to say that we have been able to keep to schedule on all stages of the new GP3 car development, fabrication and delivery to the teams," series organiser Bruno Michel commented, "Now we can't wait to see the drivers and teams in action.

"GP3 will run alongside F1 and GP2 throughout the 2010 campaign, offering an incredible and unique chance for young drivers to get experience and be seen and monitored throughout the season by the motorsport experts. Therefore, I believe that for young and talented drivers with ambition joining the Series is the best opportunity to pave the way for their future."

Surely motor sport would flourish if there was a championship that could support a few GP's, but which had an open manufacturer/engine formula, & that was a logical stepping stone up the racing ladder. This would not only encourage the drivers & teams, but also the engine suppliers & chassis manufacturers & thus produce a broader engineering base across Europe (sounds like Formula 3!!!). What we have instead, is a 'closed shop', with one manufacturer & one engine supplier getting a lucrative deal via friends of friends in the FIA. The result of all this will be stagnation & lack of interest in motor sport.

Why is Formula 1 so popular? One reason is beacuse there are many different manufacturers of chassis & engines. So, why can't the powers that be adopt this approach for the championships that lead up to Grand Prix racing? Vested interests perhaps?
