FIA Historic Formula 3
After the last three years at Zandvoort, the single-event FIA Historic Formula 3 European Cup races will take place this year at Circuit Paul Ricard on 7-9 April as part of the KENNOL Grand Prix de France Historique in collaboration with event promoter HVM Racing and the FFSA. HVM is also the promoter of the French Formula 3 Classic championship series. All Formula 3 cars from the years 1971 to 1984 (with 1600 or 2-litre engines) are welcome. Two races will be run over the weekend, with the European Cup winner determined on aggregate results. For regulations and to register for the FIA Cup go to the FIA website.
Six Hours of Paul Ricard
In another development concerning the GP de France Historique, it has also been announced that the previous two x 45minute races for GT and Touring cars would be replaced by a proper six hour enduro in collaboration with VdV Racing. Car accepted will be all those that are eligible for the VdeV Deux Tours d’Horloge, 24-hour race, which takes place at the same venue later in the year. These include just about all touring and GT cars from Period E to J2 and sports prototypes and Sports 2000 cars up to 1976 and 1986 respectively. This is one of two six-hour races that VdeV will run this year, the other being at Barcelona on 20-21 May before the the Deux Tours, which takes place in early November. See VdeV.fr for regulations and entries.
