F3 Cup open to National B licence-holders for 2015

Formula 3 racing available to more competitors than ever before

F3 Cup organisers MotorSport Vision Racing (MSVR) have opened up the championship's regulations to include MSA National B licence-holders (at UK rounds) with effect from the 2015 season, which kicks off at Oulton Park on 6 April. This means F3 Cup is now available for more competitors to compete in high-tech single-seater machinery than ever before.

 

F3 Cup is Britain's only championship for modern Formula 3 cars, with three classes covering machinery from the 1980s to 2011, plus an Invitation class for cars outside that timeframe.

 

The 2014 title was claimed by 18-year-old former karting star Toby Sowery, who faced a field consisting of both aspiring racers and enthusiastic amateurs. This mix will be encouraged further in 2015 with the new licence requirements for the seven-round championship.

 

F3 Cup Championship Coordinator, Simon Davey, said: "F3 Cup has always been about providing cost-effective high-tech single-seater competition that is inclusive to all, and with the demise of the British F3 Championship it is important that we retain these values. The new licence requirement will consolidate our position and I'm sure that this will result in an increase in grid sizes for 2015."
