First GP3 cars delivered  
New GP3 car
With just over six weeks to go until the initial Series test, the first of three new GP3 cars were delivered to the teams this week, with engines ready for collection on Friday.

The new chassis has been designed and built by Dallara, with hydraulics and electronics supplied by Magneti Marelli. Hewland provided the 6 speed paddle shift sequential gearbox, and Brembo the steel brakes and pads. The engine, based on a road car 2L Turbo, has been developed by the Renault F1 Team in Viry-Châtillon.

After months of thorough preparation the first generation car, to be raced for a three-year period, has been completed on time. The ten teams entered in the 2010 season now have the chance to begin readying their cars for the first official test on March 3rd at Circuit Paul Ricard.

The second batch of cars will be delivered during the first week of February as planned, and the third during the third week of February in time for the first test.

GP3 Series Organizer Bruno Michel said...

“The manufacturing of the first generation GP3 car is complete and on time, and I am confident that it will achieve the same level of quality competition and reliability reached in GP2. We always kept in mind during the design process to produce a car that will offer great racing to the fans whilst keeping it affordable for the teams. It’s also great to see that the 2010 grid is fast taking shape. A number of teams already have promising young drivers signed for the Series, and one can only be impressed by their high- caliber.”
