Press Release issued by MSVR:
01/12/11 – The Monoposto Championship is preparing for another strong season with MSVR after the release of their provisional calendar which includes a return to the famous Spa Francorchamps circuit.
After attracting bumper grids throughout 2011, including a record breaking 53 car entry at the Silverstone Grand prix circuit, the single-seater championship is set to be just an bouyant in 2012, with the announcement of 13 championship rounds and three non-championship events next season.
The championship, which caters for many variants of single-seaters, will begin the year at Brands Hatch in March before ending the championship campaign at the challenging Cadwell Park in September. Monoposto competitors will also visit Donington Park, Silverstone (National), Mallory Park, Spa Francorchamps (Belgium), Snetterton 300, Oulton Park and the iconic Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit in 2012.
Monoposto Championship Co-ordinator Simon Davey commented: “Working with MotorSport Vision Racing we have been able to put together an excellent calendar for Monoposto in 2012, and as usual we will be dividing our large entry into two grids for all our Championship rounds. We offer excellent value for money racing at superb venues, with big competitive grids, and a very friendly paddock. We are still working on additional non-Championship races at top venues, so watch our website for the latest news.”
Monoposto Club Chairman Nick Harrison added “We recognise that the current economic climate makes racing difficult for many competitors, but we believe that our relationship with MSVR has enabled us to provide the most cost effective single-seater racing championship in the UK, which should tempt more eligible cars out of their garages and onto the best circuits in the UK. We are also continuing to offer our SUNBAC Nova Awards which give £1000 of free race entries every year to the best novice drivers in the Championship.”
