Most Monoposto race weekends are held over a weekend with separate qualifying and races on each day. Oulton Park was different. Oulton rarely holds races on Sundays, and only for the biggest UK meetings such as BTCC, so Saturday was crammed full with an early start and running right up to the 18:30 […]

F3 Cup – Oulton Park, July 2014 by Norwich Photo The weather on the way to Oulton Park on Friday afternoon was glorious – hot and sunny. However, the forecast predicted showers and sun… Saturday morning arrived to a dull grey damp morning, with a heavy drizzle in the air which progressed to fairly […]
The Spa Summer Classic organised by Roadbook is a popular event for English drivers and I was there covering several of the races. My main series of interest was the F3 Cup Championship round and Monoposto non-championship round which had two guest drivers in Peter Li Zhi Cong who races in British F3 with […]
Thruxton is a circuit which is only allowed to have 12 race weekends per year, so the opportunity for a club series to visit is fairly rare. The last time Monoposto went to Thruxton was in 2010. It’s the fastest circuit on the calendar, and although many think this means lots of power is […]
Fifty years ago this year, ‘Gentleman’ Jack Sears won the last running of the original Autosport 3 hour race at Snetterton in a Willmont Cobra Coupe (similar to the Daytona Cobra Coupe). In the modern era, Chevrons have dominated, but this year that type of car was not included and it was Chris Ward and […]
I have yet to master the art of being in two places at once, and with Monoposto at Donington, whilst F3 Cup were at Silverstone, it was easier to hire another photographer than to turn science fiction into fact. Thus Tim Wood kindly volunteered to work on my behalf at Donington. He enjoyed […]
Toby Sowery took two more race wins this weekend on the Silverstone GP circuit in mixed dry/damp conditions. The picture here shows Stuart Wiltshire ahead of Lee Morgan, photo taken on the exit of Luffield before the right hand kink of Woodcote that leads on to the National start line. F1 uses the […]
The first race weekend of the Monoposto season took place at Snetterton. Many old faces, but a couple of new faces, and a couple of new cars out as well. The weather was quite good on Saturday, but a bit iffy on the Sunday. It didn’t rain heavily during the day, just […]
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.
The Mono 300 end of season meeting was very much a last minute addition to the calendar, and with a very low entry fee of £ 200 for 2 quail and 4 races, many racers paid up for an end of season run. Sadly, its late addition to the calendar meant I couldn’t attend, as […]
The Macau Grand Prix is the Monaco GP for professional Formula 3 drivers, with representatives from all over the world bidding to win the ‘world cup’ of F3. Any driver wishing to take part needs to have competed in a Formula 3 race in the last 12 months, and F3 Cup meets the […]
Jim Blockley emerged as the inaugural winner of the Tiedeman Trophy but was one of three contenders who all scored maximum points (if points were awarded). Jim took the class win in both races as well as recording fastest race lap, as did Chris Dittmann and Jason Timms, but Jim had more competition in […]
