F3 Cup is delighted to announce a new partnership for 2018, with Marchand Watch Company becoming the championship’s official timing partner.

F3 Cup heads into its seventh championship season in 2018, with a fresh new look unveiled at the start of the year. As part of this overhaul, organisers MotorSport Vision Racing (MSVR) are pleased to welcome the Marchand brand to the championship. The company’s logos will adorn all of the race cars this season, and feature on the championship website, and Marchand will offer prizes for the top three drivers at the end of the year.

The inspiration behind the Marchand Watch Company can be traced back to Adamir Marchand, who was born in Bienne, Switzerland in April 1885. A Swiss watch and clock inventor who joined Benrus Watch Company in the early 1930’s, Adamir is the great grandfather of Daniel Brigham, founder of Marchand Watch Company. The company’s first line of timepieces, the Debonair, was launched to great acclaim in 2017, and the new Legacy model is set to launch on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter for pre-orders at the beginning of April.

F3 Cup remains the only championship in the UK exclusively open to close-to-contemporary (pre-2017) Formula 3 machinery. Another superb calendar will see visits to the UK’s favourite circuits, including Brands Hatch GP, Silverstone GP and Donington Park. The 2017 title fight went right down to the wire, with Jacopo Sebastiani clinching the title at the final round ahead of the University of Wolverhampton Racing’s Shane Kelly.

The 2018 season kicks off at Donington Park on 21/22 April. For more information on the championship please visit www.f3cup.co.uk, and for more information on Marchand Watch Company please visit marchandwatches.com
