No GP3 for iSport
September 20, 2009 2 Comments
As Italiaracing informed yesterday, iSport has reportedly withdrawn its interest in the new GP3 series. F3 UK team Double R has also made its sentiment public to stay away from GP3 at this point.
If true, not a good sign for a series that will need a strong dose of confidence from top teams to take off. As posted before, I seriously doubt this category will be feasible for GP2/WSR/F3 teams in 2010. If you recall, GP3 is made up of 10 teams with 3 cars each, making the capital expenditure load on each team significant for a series of this level.
I once again hope the organizers have some sensibility to the realities of the teams, and postpone the category until things pick up a bit. Or better else, make up with IFM and put that category on the grid in 2010.
