A rebirth seems set for 500cc racing this year. The latest issue of the newsletter of the 500 Owners Association lists no less than 30 modern half-litre racers built or apart from the historic F3 cars which race regularly. 500s have tended to appear in sprints and hill-climbs, but the Association is keen to see half-litre classes on the circuits as a challenge to the recently-announced Formula First to encourage newcomers into racing. Information on the Club’s activities from Barry Brant, 104 Lowbrook Lane, Tidbury Green, Solihull, West Midlands.
