07/03/13 - Multiple Champion of Brands race winner,
Josh Barnett, heads the list of pre-season registrations
currently preparing for the start of the 2013 CoB season.
Barnett has registered for the James Beckett Motorsport and
MSVR administered Champion of Brands with a Van Diemen BR001, the
very car that took him to race victories last season. Barnett has
registered his car as number 90, although as the reigning
'champion' in the Brands Hatch based series he will start his 2013
campaign on June 1 displaying the number 1 on his car.
Ahead of the official season launch of the Champion of Brands, that
will take place at the MSVR Media Day on Wednesday March 20th,
series organiser, James Beckett, reports strong interest in the CoB
as it heads towards its fourth season since reappearing on race
schedules under the administration of MSVR.
Beckett says, "The Champion of Brands has been taken to heart by
the Brands Hatch and Formula Ford faithful and 2013 looks set to be
a great year for the category. Many competitors have already
registered for the 2013 season and the Champion of Brands is set to
thrill crowds with some great racing again this season."
*The Champion of Brands will consist of four rounds this season,
three of which will take place around the iconic Brands Hatch Grand
Prix Circuit. The CoB races also form rounds of the SuperSeries for
Formula Ford 1600, a series that has been significantly boosted
by James Beckett Motorsport and MSVR for 2013.
