Mono F3: roadmap proposal for future regulations regarding engines

Posted on January 11, 2017

We have seen a golden era for the Mono2000 / Mono F3 class over the last 16 years. The rules that have been in place for this time have given us a choice of reliable, competitive engines that have been easily and cheaply available. We have seen 2000cc engines from Vauxhall, Toyota, Ford and Volkswagen win Mono races outright in this period.

Other that a relatively small change to the regulations in 2010 to allow fuel injection, the stability of the regulations has been seen to be very beneficial to the membership. Unfortunately, these engines are now getting long in the tooth, base engine and parts availability for some of them is becoming difficult. This situation of parts availability is not going to improve over time.

This availability problem has not yet become critical, we should use this time we have available to look at the future regulations for the class. This time gives us the possibility to formulate, discuss and implement a regulations roadmap for the largest of the Mono classes without the need for emergency measures.

The attached document below, drawn up by Russ Giles and the Technical Committee, is intended to be the start of a discussion process, with the intention to have reached a consensus by the summer.   The regulations would be implemented for the 2020 season, allowing all current and future competitors plenty of time to prepare, and for those regulations to be stable bar minor adjustments until the 2025 season.
