Euroformula Open | 3-races-format, Reversed Grids & Points for Overtaking
Many interesting upgrades are going to involve Euroformula Open over its 2021 championship.
If the adoption of a third race for last year was temporary in order to create more racing, GT Sport (the organisation which manages Euroformula Open Championship) has now confirmed it as permanent for 2021. Leading the championship calendar to a total of 24 races (as the venue for the ninth round is still yet to be announced).

Reversed grids will also be introduced for the first time: Saturday's Race 1 will use the grid order set by Qualifying, Saturday's Race 2 will reverse the Race 1's top 6 finishers and Sunday's Race 3 starting order will be made of the drivers who set the fastest laps from Race 2.

Another interesting addition will be the two points for the driver who will have gained the most places during the race. 'All these measures are aimed at giving drivers new sporting challenges useful for their development and further increase the show for watchers' the Euroformula Open official website affirms.
