Previous: 1977 Next: 1979

The 1978 German Formula Three Championship (German: 1978 Deutsche Formel-3-Meisterschaft)[1] was a multi-event motor racing championship for single-seat open wheel formula racing cars held across Europe. The championship featured drivers competing in two-litre Formula Three racing cars which conformed to the technical regulations, or formula, for the championship. It commenced on 12 March at Circuit Zolder and ended at Erding on 1 October after nine rounds.

Klaus Zimmermann Racing Team driver Bertram Schäfer became a champion. He won races at Zolder, Nürburgring and Wunstorf. Alan Smith finished as runner-up, he was consistent but wasn't able to win a race. The same was true for Helmut Bross, who completed the top-three in the drivers' standings. Jochen Dauer, Michael Korten and Walter Lechner were the only other drivers who were able to win a race in the season.[2]
