The Euroformula Open back to Pau

24.01.2023

GT Sport today announced a final change in the calendar of the 2023 Euroformula Open. The F.3-based series will be returning to the street track of Pau, in the weekend of 13-14 May, for what will be the 80th running of the iconic Grand-Prix de Pau.

It will be the third time that the Euroformula Open has the honour to be the main race of the Grand-Prix de Pau. In 2019, Billy Monger (Carlin) conquered a memorable win in the wet, while last year, when the race came back after a 2-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Vlad Lomko (CryptoTower Racing) imposed himself.

The Pau event will be run on the 2-race format used in those two previous editions, with Race 1 on Saturday and the 80th Grand-Prix de Pau on Sunday.

The 2023 calendar of the Euroformula Open will stick to the eight-event format announced for 2023, with the round foreseen at Mugello on 30 September - 1st October being dropped for this year.

Jesús Pareja, CEO of GT Sport commented: “We are delighted to have the Euroformula Open again as the top series in the Grand-Prix de Pau, and even more so on s special year like this one when this event, one with the longest and richest history in motorsports, will hit the 80th edition mark. This is great news for all Euroformula Open contenders, as they will have the possibility to measure themselves on what is, together with Monaco and Macau, the oldest and most prestigious urban track in the world. I want to thank everyone involved at Pau and in the FFSA for making this possible, and also ACI Sport for their understanding, as we step down from the Mugello event.”
