The FIA Formula 3 Americas championship will have its first international event in 2020 when the series heads north to Quebec Canada for the Grand Prix de Trois Riviere on the streets of Quebec. Speaking about the news SCCA Pro Racing General Manager Sydney Davis Yagel said:
“F3 Americas Championship is excited to add a Canadian stop to our 2020 schedule. “We’re excited to internationally debut the Honda-powered Ligier JS F3 cars on Hankook tires at such a fan-favorite event like the Grand Prix of Trois Rivieres. It’s also a perfect event to showcase our field of talented drivers on the championship’s first temporary street circuit.
General Manager of GP3R Dominic Fugere commented on the news saying:
The period where we had an important stock-car series with Trans-Am and a major single-seater championship with Atlantic are remembered as some of the most significant of our 50 editions. “With the NASCAR Pinty’s Series adding 10 laps to its Trois-Rivières round and the F3 Americas Championship bringing some of the best developing talent of the continent, we are happy to bring our fans such a breadth of racing in our city. Spectators in our Villeneuve and Germain grandstands, right in front of our pit lane, will be treated to more drama and we believe that these seats will go very fast.”
Canadian F3 Americas driver Logan Cusson said:
“I am really excited that the F3 Americas Championship added GP3R to its Canadian roster for 2020. “It’s the perfect place for F3 Americas to introduce itself to the Canadian fans and to race on the championship’s first ever street course.”
The race takes place from August 7-9 2020 with tickets on sale now from https://gp3r.com
