17/03/2011 - The entry list has been announced for the inaugural round of the MSV F3 Cup. A grid of sixteen competitors will be amongst the first to race on the new Snetterton 300 circuit this weekend (19th-20th March) at the MSVR Season starter.

All but one of this weekend's MSV F3 Cup entries are Dallara-mounted. Chris Needham's DST Group Dallara carries competition number 1 and heads the field, but he will be challenged by several very quick drivers. Brothers Mark and Neil Harrison, both running Toyota Xtec engines in their Magic Motorsport cars, will be on the pace, as will a pair of cars run by Mark Bailey Racing for Nick Robinson and Stuart Wiltshire. Lanan Racing has Mark Terry, plus anticipated entries from Alex Craven and the quick Kat Impey. Richard Purcell in the Topmarx car will be busy since he has another car running in the Monoposto race.

Matt Draper has also entered with Antel Motorsport entry. Matt is a young driver with a strong record in Formula Renault and it will be interesting to see how he fairs in the MSV F3 Cup. Aaron Steele, 2008 FPA Shootout winner and Mclaren Autosport Award nominee, is another young and very quick driver in the series, also with a very impressive record already.

Phil Moore returns to this category of racing in his Toms Toyota engine F304, and should go well. Other well established F3 competitors here today are Dave Karaskas, now in a Class A Dallara Spiess, Philip Austin in the Hartley Hire Mitsubishi Xtec engine F398 and James Ledamun in the sole Class B entry, the interesting TOMS 036F sponsored by TRS Harnesses.
