1997 FF1M-3000 Season

Next: 1998

The 1997 FF1M-3000 Season was the inaugaural season of FF1M-3000, now called FF2M, the leading feeder series to FF1M. The Drivers Championship was won by Juan Pablo Montoya with a race to spare whilst SAP Team Black won the Teams Championship in their one and only FF1M-3000 campaign before merging with Team Yellow who finished 3rd.

Juan Pablo Montoya did not take part in the final race of the season as the championship was already won and he was rewarded with a drive in the Ajay Motorsports FF1M team.

Teams and Drivers

For the first season of FF1M-3000 all teams were run by the AFIA. They were given colours as names which also became their liveries. Over the season they picked up sponsorship which in some cases was added to the name of the team.
