Also on July 1st and 2nd at Stewartby,we have a round of the World Formula 4 Championship and the European GT30 Championship.One not to be missed this.

So as you see we cover quite a bit of the country with our racing,should be a course somewhere near you.1417-copy

I also have some news about one of the GT15 class drivers.Harvey Smith ,son of ex racer Martyn,  is one of our top drivers in this class and this season is hoping to do better than last,a difficult task when you consider he was always in the top 2 or 3 throughout the season,and  he took his boat to Norway and won,beating some of the top European drivers,you can see what a hard job that will be to better that,.However I have a feeling that he will do us all proud on his travels in 2017.

The F1 Atlantic driver will be competing in all the rounds of the British Championship and also is travelling to Imatra,Finland for the World GT15 Championship in Jun and the European Gt15 Championship at Aluksne,Latvia in Aug.Speaking to his father I`m told he is also planning some more trips to Scandinavia to race and and alo plans to watch as many of the Formula 1 Championship rounds as possible.

I am also informed that he is also testing in Formula 4 this season,so a very busy season awaits Harvey and team.

Thats all for now ,will be back with more news when I get it

Bob.
