As announced last month, MOTOR SPORT, in conjunction with Shell, is awarding £1,000 for a Formula Three Championship this year, the opening round being at the BRSCC Snetterton Meeting on March 27th (it’s all starting, next month!).
In addition to this F3 Championship, MOTOR SPORT will again present the Brooklands Memorial Trophy, to be won on a points basis at the race meetings of the Vintage Sports Car Club, with £75 prize money for the winner and £50 and £25 for the runners-up. Thus we are endeavouring to encourage racing at both ends of the spectrum, as it were. The full list of the dozen fixtures which qualify for the MOTOR SPORT/Shell F3 Championship was published last month. The VSCC Race Meetings at which points will be awarded in the MOTOR SPORT Brooklands Memorial Trophy Contest are:
Silverstone: April 11th.
Silverstone: July 18th.
Oulton Park: June 20th.
Thruxton: September 12th.
