So - 5 days until practice 1 on the streets of Clipsal - F3 is back!
I bought the Clipsal program today and was staggered and very happily surprised to see the entry list!
here it is as shown - mind you, this program was made before Premat was annouced at GRM, and there are lots of TBA's, hence potential DNS'.
#1 - Champ - Gilmour R - Chris Gilmour - Dallara F307 Merc
#2 - Champ - Astuti MS - Matthew Sofi - Dallara F307 Mugen Honda
#3 - Champ - Team BRM - John Magro - Dallara F307 Merc
#4 - Champ - Team BRM - Jordan Skinner - Dallara F307 Merc
#5 - Champ - Team BRM - TBA - Dallara F307 Merc
#6 - Champ - R-Tek - TBA - Dallara F307 Merc
#7 - Natio - R-Tek - TBA - Dallara F304 - Spiess Opel
#8 - Natio - R-Tek - TBA - Dallara F304 - Spiess Opel
#9 - Champ - R-Tek - Steel Guiliana - Dallara F307 Merc
#11- Champ - Astuti MS - TBA - Dallara F307 Renault
#14- Natio - BF Racing - Roman Krumins - Dallara F304 Spiess Opel
#21- Natio - GKH PC - Graeme Holmes - Dallara F304 Spiess Opel
#22- Natio - LORD Chem - Lockie Marshall - Dallara F304 Renault
#25- Natio - TMR - TBA - Dallara F304 Renault
#27- Champ - Team BRM - Hart Mason - Mygale M-07 Merc
#32- Champ - Mills MS - Jon Mills - Mygale M-07 Merc
#33- Natio - Mills MS - TBA - Dallara F301 Spiess Opel
#42- Natio - BF Racing - Ben Gersekowski - Dallara F304 Spiess Opel
#46- Champ - Harvest MS - TBA - Mygale M-08 Merc
#??- Natio - Gotch Racing - Nathan Gotch - Dallara F304 Renault
So you see, looks good on paper!!
20 cars - 8 TBA's
However - 3 TBA's are R-Tek, which will be filled to the highest bidder, 1 TBA is a BRM champ position, which should be filled.
2 TBA's from Astuti and Tim Macrow Racing - which should be filled.
Either way you look at it - a damn fine field of cars! Including the Mygales too!

| Can't wait!
So excited to see a Gold Star event with large grids. I think you'll find cars that front at the first two or three rounds are given entry to the Bathurst round over one-off entries, so those TBA's will surely be filled.
Fingers crossed this keeps up. They're an expensive car to run, but Australia really needs a strong open-wheel championship.
