MSV F3 Cup announces terms for F2 test drive prize

10/03/2011 - Judging panel revealed for MSV F3 Cup most meritorious driver criteria

10/03/2011 - The MSV F3 Cup has revealed the criteria for its prize FIA Formula Two Championship test drive, which will be awarded to the most meritorious driver in its inaugural campaign.

A new series to the MotorSport Vision Racing (MSVR) portfolio in 2011, the MSV F3 Cup consists of a programme of stand alone races and therefore no overall champion will be crowned.

Considering the class structure and the varying age of the cars, the winner will be the driver who gives the most outstanding performance of the year according to the car they are driving.

To be eligible, drivers must have attended at least seven of the 9 scheduled 2011 events, starting a minimum of one race at each meeting. The overall decision will be made by a panel of experts from the motorsport industry after the last race of the year at Oulton Park on 22 October.

David Scott, Race Operations Director for MSVR, said: ""We're delighted to secure such an eminent panel of knowledgeable and respected figures from the motorsport industry to judge the most meritorious driver of the inaugural MSV F3 Cup. The F2 test prize represents a fantastic opportunity for a club motorsport competitor to sample top international machinery and the winner will not necessarily be the person who wins the most races - they might not win any!"

The MSVR F3 Cup gets underway at Snetterton on 19/20 March as part of the MSVR Season Starter, the first race meeting to take place on the newly developed 300 circuit.
