F3 Cup Partners
MotorSport Vision Racing and F3 Cup extend a warm welcome to these companies and thank them for their continued support.
Anglo American Oil will continue to supply their Sunoco race fuel as the control fuel for F3 Cup in 2018, meaning drivers will again be eligible for the Sunoco 200 Challenge, whose highest points-scorer wins a drive in the SportsCar 200 Championship race at Daytona International Speedway, Florida, on the same weekend as the Rolex 24 race.Visit the Sunoco website
Pirelli Tyres was appointed as the control tyre supplier from the 2015 season. All F3 Cup cars run on Pirelli P Zero F3 tyres, whose performance and durability has been proven testing in Europe and racing in the Brazilian F3 Championship, won in 2014 by Pedro Piquet, son of triple World Champion Nelson Piquet.
Pirelli tyres were selected by F3 Cup promoter MSVR for their high levels of grip and excellent durability. Compared with F3 Cup's previous tyre, they will also be offered at marginally lower cost - consistent with the series' role in providing cost-conscious and affordable racing in state-of-the-art F3 single-seaters.
This new affiliation with motorsport's premier tyre manufacturer - Pirelli is supplier to the GP3, F2 and F1 championships - will also ensure excellent customer service for F3 Cup's participating teams. Pirelli will provide support from the same facility in Didcot, Oxfordshire, that coordinates its F1 tyre operations.Visit the Pirelli website
MARCHAND WATCH COMPANY
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.
