F3 Americas adds Road America


F3 Americas Championship Powered by Honda has finalized its schedule with the addition of Road America to its calendar for the 2019 season. As one of the newest FIA regional single-seater, single-chassis championships F3 Americas will support the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Stadium Super Truck Series and the SCCA Pro Racing Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli Aug. 22-24.

The announcement marks the second consecutive year for F3 Americas acting as the support series to a NASCAR Xfinity Series event.

“We are excited to secure this fantastic venue for our final F3 Americas Championship date,” SCCA Pro Racing General Manager Sydney Davis Yagel said. “I can’t wait to see and hear our Ligier JS F3 cars come to life on this iconic track for our penultimate round.”

A fleet of Ligier JS F3 cars, powered by a 303 HP Honda Civic Type R engine and equipped with Hankook tires, will take on Road America’s legendary four-mile, 14-turn road course for three 35-minute races throughout the weekend. The final event schedule will be released closer to the event.

“Many racers have started their careers at Road America and climbed the ladder to the top levels of motorsport,” said Mike Kertscher, Road America’s president and general manager. “From racing karts at our CTECH Manufacturing Motorplex, to open-wheel racing, then advancing to IndyCar, IMSA and even NASCAR. We are very excited to host the F3 Americas Championship and serve as a unique venue where today’s up and coming racers can gain experience and establish lifelong memories at ‘America’s National Park of Speed.’”

F3 Americas opens its 2019 season at Barber Motorsports Park supporting IndyCar April 3-5, with stops at Road Atlanta, Pittsburgh International Race Complex, Virginia International Raceway and Sebring International Raceway following.
