FIA Formula 3 European Championship

Experienced driver and rookie hold the top positions

An experienced Formula 3 driver and an F3 rookie hold the top positions in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship – and both are contesting the series with the writings ‘Spiess’ and ‘Volkswagen’ decorating the air boxes of their single-seaters. With two race meetings and six championship rounds respectively contested, Antonio Giovinazzi (Jagonya Ayam by Carlin) and Charles Leclerc (Van Amersfoort Racing) are the only ones of the more than 30 drivers who succeeded in scoring more than 100 points, in the planet’s most competitive young-driver series: Italian Giovinazzi has got 106 points on his tally and Monaco’s Leclerc follows in second position with 101 points.

“For me, it’s far more important that we represent a massive force in the upper half of the field, with our engines,” said Holger Spiess. “There hasn’t been a single outlier, so far, or others who regularly have to cope with positions at the end of the field. This underlines the broad performance level of our power units.”

Together with his engineers, the Spiess Motorenbau GmbH CEO also was on site on the first weekend in May at Hockenheim to attend to the teams Van Amersfoort Racing (Netherlands), Carlin (UK), Motopark (Germany) and Signature (France).

Following the season kick-off held in mid-April at Silverstone, UK, the FIA Formula 3 European Championship contested its second race meeting of the 2015 season in its standard environment – the DTM support programme. In the races at the Hockenheimring’s GP circuit, the changeable conditions represented a challenging test for the young drivers. So, the crowds once again were provided with enthralling motor racing and even more so, as the DTM support programme also featured a World Rallycross Championship round – for the first time.

Engine manufacturing The engines are individual custom products and are assembled in the heart of the company by a highly qualified team. Here, quality instead of quantity represents the yardstick.
Test bench Here, the process represented by development and design, production and manufacturing comes full circle. On the test rigs, the components or the entire project have to definitively demonstrate if they meet the highest standards.
