One of the key aims of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) is to aid the progress of young drivers through the ranks of junior motor sport towards an eventual drive in Formula One. To facilitate this progress the Federation has increased its involvement in the F3 European Championship in a bid to restore the series to its former glory. As such, from 2013 the FIA Formula 3 European Championship will be a part of major international meetings. The series will consist of ten events on both F1 circuits and others closely linked to the history of F3.
The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) is the governing body for world motor sport and the federation of the world’s leading motoring organisations. It is a non-profit making association and brings together 233 national motoring and sporting organisations from 134 countries on five continents. Its member clubs represent millions of motorists and their families.
