Monoposto is set for a capacity grid this weekend (16/17 August)
as the championship heads to the Silverstone Grand Prix
The single seater championship's classes are normally split
across two grids, but they are this weekend combined onto one. The
result is a 60+ entry and a reserve list of cars waiting for one of
the 54 grid-slots to become available.
It will be the second year in succession the club has sold out
its full Silverstone allocation.
Simon Davey, Monoposto championship organiser, said: "It's great
to see such a large entry for the event, particularly in the
two-litre classes where we've got 34 cars running. It must be one
of the most competitive race weekends the Club has seen for many
Robbie Watts currently leads the standings, but hasn't won for
four races. The wins have been shared around though, which has
helped him preserve his 2000 Class lead. Mono Moto has the closest
title battle with just three points between Kevin Waring and double
Oulton Park winner Jason Timms. Davey believes a good battle could
be in store between the front runners from the 2000 and Moto
classes for the outright wins.
"It will be fascinating to see if self-designed cars such as
Adrian Wright's GEM can beat the assembled might of a field of
F3-derived Dallaras. There's no shortage of competitive runners in
the Mono Moto bike-engined class."
