Masters of America
Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, Brits rule, as Greg Thornton and Ron Maydon emerged as the 2019 Masters Historic Formula One USA Champions. The globe-trotting Thornton lifted the post-78 crown in his Lotus 91, while Masters boss Maydon, who contested all the races, took pre-78 glory in his LEC CRP1. Both titles were decided at the November 1-3 Masters support races to the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas – the final round of this year’s six-race schedule.
