The top drivers in the final championship standings will be rewarded with a wide range of prize tests in various other racing categories. The top three drivers will receive a two-day test in a Formula Two car. As well as that, the champion will receive a Formula One test with Scuderia Ferrari, and the runner-up will receive a Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters test.
A ten-round calendar was announced on 15 March 2012; made up of seven rounds at Formula 3 Euro Series events, two British Formula 3 events at Pau and Spa-Francorchamps, with the Norisring round being run as a championship round in both series.
The second race at the Norisring was red-flagged after half the race had been completed due to torrential rain. As a result, series organisers only awarded half points to each of the classified finishers eligible to score points.
