F3 Cup opened its 2014 season at the Snetterton 300 circuit. Karting champion, new to cars, Toby Sowery, swept to two victories, with Tristan Cliffe best of the rest. This shot is from the starting gantry of race 1.

Seeing 54 cars hurtle from standstill into the first corner is a great sight and they all made it through without any tangles. […]
I’d not been to Castle Combe since 2007, so it was nice to go back. The morning was lovely, ideal racing conditions – not too hot, not too windy, but clouds rolled in and whilst the 2000 cars were in the assembly area it began to drizzle, then to rain a bit and everyone was […]

A single qualifying session to determine grids for both races, with 2nd fastest time setting the grid for race 2. The most spectactular photo has to be Nick […]
