In brief, March 2014
* Classic 2-litre F3 cars from the 1970s and early 1980s will feature at the Silverstone Classic (July 25-27), with two races for the type of cars once raced by drivers such as Ayrton Senna and Nelson Piquet. The HSCC aims to create the biggest F3 grid ever seen with a target of 50 cars from the 1971-84 era. The grid will combine cars from the club’s UK series and the corresponding French F3 Classic series. A class for 1600cc F3 cars will be included.
* The 2014 Sydney-London Marathon will pit competitors against 700 miles of gravel special stages in Australia followed by another 700 miles of asphalt in Europe before the marathon rally ends in London on Sunday May 11. The rally starts in Sydney on April 12 for 33 special stages to Perth. After an airlift to Turkey, the route crosses Bulgaria, Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Austria, Italy and France, then takes in two days on the Epynt ranges in Wales before the finish.
