Lola Simraceway Formula 3: Class-Leading Safety


fia-logoSpeed is the most common measurement of how a race car performs. However, an equally-important–and often overlooked–component is that of safety.

Being the fastest, most capable school racing cars around, our Lola Simraceway Formula 3 racers perform amazingly on the track. However, unlike many other school cars, they also comply with the FIA’s strict crash safety standards. Built of carbon-fiber, their one-piece monocoque shells are strong enough to withstand extreme impacts with little deformation. These “survival cells”, combined with front and rear crash boxes, make them one of the safest vehicles in racing.




The Simraceway F3 Racing Series’ price per three day weekend includes practice session, qualifying and a race for each of the days. Additional practice sessions are available earlier in both weeks.

Early Reservation (Before Monday, November 9th at 12:00 p.m.)$8,995 for all weekend events
Standard Reservation (After Monday November 9th at 12:00 p.m.)$9,995 for all weekend events
Crash damage insurance (Maximum liability is $4,750 per incident)$795 per day
Crash Damage


Competitors are responsible for all crash damage. However, liability can be limited to $4,750 per incident with the $795 purchase of a full day of crash damage insurance. We strongly advise competing drivers to consider taking this insurance out for race days. Please contact us for more information.
