The 2014 FIA Formula 3 European Championship will see
more powerful Volkswagen engines in their cars which will see an extra 15hp
added on to the old 210-hp generation of Formula 3 engines. Thus, it would be 225-hp
generation engines screaming their hearts out during the races.
Nine drivers will line up with the newly developed power
train from Wolfsburg when the Formula 3 European Championship gets underway in
Silverstone, Great Britain. Meanwhile, the national series that form the
foundation for the European Championship will run the tried-and-tested Formula
3 engines. The conventional units will continue to be used in both the British
Formula 3 Championship and the German ATS Formula 3 Cup, in which Volkswagen is
also involved as engine supplier.
“The new engine regulations in Formula 3 offer Volkswagen
a fantastic opportunity to further demonstrate its technical expertise in this
important junior class,” said Volkswagen Motorsport Director Jost Capito. “Volkswagen
has developed a lot of outstanding, thoroughbred racing engines recently. We
have won the Rally Dakar on three occasions with TDI technology. The ‘Global
Race Engine’ for last year’s World Rally Championship was instrumental in
ensuring that all three World Championship titles went to Wolfsburg at the
first attempt. We have now incorporated all of our expertise in the development
of the Formula 3 engine, and are excited to see how it fares against our direct
rivals at the highest level,” he added.
