The South African Simulation Formula 3 Championship (SA simF3 Series) is an entirely new concept to Sim Race South Africa and its first season will start on 15 February 2016. The championship is inspired by, influenced by, and modeled partly on the real world European Formula 3 Series. The real world European Formula 3 Series is associated with big names in Formula one namely; Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Michael Schumacher, Ayrton Senna and many more, all of whom proved their talent while competing in the championship.
The SA simF3 Series joins the already established and successful Assetto Corsa SA simGT Series, and the new Project Cars SA simEC Series, as the third 2016 National Simulation Championship. The championship will make use of Assetto Corsa, created by Kunos Simulazoni, as its base platform as well as the Dallara F312 (Formula 3 car model), created by the mod team; Radiator Springs Racing (RSR). After a brief discussion, RSR have given Sim Race SA permission to use their mod.
The 2016 SA simF3 series will span 10 months, with mostly one round (two races) per month from 15 February 2016 to 05 December 2016.
Drivers will be required to be up to date with their Sim Race South Africa F3 or F3 Team membership fees after they have applied for the championship (SEE HERE).
