With the options to run on British circuits having narrowed after MotorSport Vision made the step of actually asking the British F3 championship to pay the going rate for circuit use, it's an interesting provisional calendar that has been issued for 2005.

Brands Hatch, Oulton Park and Snetterton are all off the agenda, so the British series moves further onto European turf with visits to Italy's Monza and Germany's Nurburgring tracks.

The provisional 2005 calendar appears on one of the official British F3 websites, but not the other 'official' website, so there could well yet be some movement to come.
