The 60th anniversary of the introduction of the 1-litre Formula 3 category will be celebrated during the Historic Sports Car Club’s Historic Formula 3 Championship next season.  The HSCC is devising a 2024 calendar with some high profile race meetings along with a big push to encourage more of the earlier cars to join the grid.  Plans are also being made to have some former 1-litre F3 racers as guests during the year where they will be reunited with their cars and demonstrate them on track.  One confirmed 2024 race date will take these wonderful single seaters, raced from 1964 to 1970, to Spa-Francorchamps, while other dates are yet to be announced. 

President of the One Litre F3 Historic Racing Association, period 1-litre F3 racer Mike Walker plans to be on the grid next season in his Brabham BT21.  “We plan to make 2024 something special for Historic Formula 3.  We had more than 30 cars at Brands Hatch recently and we have more cars coming.  We’re particularly keen to attract some of the earlier cars back out along with some cars that have not raced for a while,” he said.  For more information contact the HSCC or see www.hscc.org.uk.
