CLASSIFIEDS

There are many new and used cars available for LMP3 Cup Australia. With the move to hold onto the current LMP3 Homologation until the end of 2021 it opens up all of the current cars in the market meaning existing LMP3 teams can use their current cars for another two years and new teams and drivers have a large number of high quality used cars available to them making the entry price much lower. That being said all manufacturers will still supply brand new current homologation cars to the Australian market. Used car prices are ranging from €60,000 - 150,000 depending on included spares and mileage. New cars €206,000.
