• Five-round 2021 season set for January 29 start at Dubai Autodrome

• Organizers anticipate 23 entries from nine teams

• Driver announcements to follow

The fourth season of the F3 Asian Championship Certified by FIA will get underway on January 29 at the Dubai Autodrome after organizers tweaked the provisional calendar in light of prevailing entry requirements for the UAE. Around 23 entries are expected from nine teams, with driver announcements to follow in the coming days.

The opening round will be preceded by a pre-season test on January 27, and teams arriving from specified countries have been advised to enter Dubai 10 days prior the second round at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit on February 5-6, in order to comply with the city’s entry requirements.

The championship returns to Dubai for Rounds 3 and 4, before the season finale at Yas Marina on February 19-20. The revised provisional calendar is subject to approval by the FIA.

Reigning champions BlackArts Racing, which won the 2020 driver and team titles with Dutchman Joey Alders, will enter three cars, while two-time team champions Hitech Grand Prix also enters three cars plus a further two under Hitech Asia.

Pinnacle Motorsport, which ran championship runner-up Jack Doohan and Pietro Fittipaldi last season, returns with a three-car entry. Championship regular Absolute Racing is also back, this time with two cars after a successful season with Jamie Chadwick in 2020.

Abu Dhabi Racing made its championship debut at the Yas Marina Circuit last year when Khaled Al Qubaisi took all three Masters category wins. The team returns this year for a full season with a three-car entry as Abu Dhabi Racing by Prema, marking the series debut of reigning FIA F2, FIA F3, Formula Regional European and Italian F4 champions Prema Powerteam.

Also new to the championship are Evans GP, founded by former BlackArts Racing Team Manager Josh Evans, with three cars, while Motoscape and Mumbai Falcons each enter two cars.

Driver announcements will follow shortly.
