Formula 3 Asian Championship Certified by FIA and Giti Tire were tasked with executing the first major racing series of 2021, was sure to be a challenge.
Adaptation and Digitalization Concludes The Season
With the COVID-19 travel and logistics difficulties of gathering all drivers and teams, safely completing the five round series, and maximising digital exposure without having fans in attendance, a smooth result required great effort from all involved. Fortunately, the result turned out to be a very successful one, with 25 top young drivers from 17 countries bringing one of the most exciting seasons in the five years of F3 Asia.
One of the challenges from the season was to find a location that would provide ability to travel and access to world-class tracks in the Asia region. While the Formula 3 Asian Championship series usually rotates among various major tracks and cities in Asia, international travel restrictions paved the way for the UAE to be selected, with famous Abu Dhabi and Dubai racetracks providing the perfect backdrop. Meanwhile, all teams needed to gather from around the world, as well as the Giti Tire support crew.
Another way of providing a positive solution for this season was the ability to stream all races online through a variety of social media channels. This allowed all fans to access the action freely and in the comfort and safety of their own homes, for the first time in F3 Asia history.
Giti Tire stated in a recent press communication, “We are proud to support the F3 Asian championship series, with all cars using GitiCompete GTR1 tyres in the action.”
These tyres are specially engineered with Giti’s global R&D team and AdvanZtech proprietary technology to meet the requirements of the most demanding motorsports racers, as shown through the successful races of this season.
