£1,000 Worth of Awards to be Won in 2011 by New Race Drivers
Monoposto Racing Club has been leading the way in organising low cost single seater racing for its members for over 50 years. The Monoposto Championship is the largest single seater championship in the UK with typical entry numbers in the 50+ range.
For 2011 the Monoposto Racing Club has announced the Monoposto Nova Awards, which are specifically aimed at encouraging new drivers.
As part of the 2011 Monoposto Championship the Club will include Awards for the first and second place drivers on Championship points won in any Mono class, who start their season as “novices”. Alongside the Trophies comes two free double header Monoposto Race entries in 2012 for the winner, and one free double header race entry in 2012 for the runner up. The total value of the Awards is approximately £1000; arguably the most valuable prize fund in club-level single seater racing.
The Monoposto Nova Awards will be open to any full Monoposto member, who starts their first 2011 Monoposto Championship race still needing to be observed and to obtain some or all of the initial 6 signatures on their competition licence Upgrade Card. To be eligible for the Monoposto Nova Awards, a competitor will therefore start their 2011 Mono Championship campaign as a novice race driver as defined by the MSA, with the car carrying the compulsory black/yellow cross.
The Monoposto Nova Awards are a positive recognition that Monoposto is a key entry point into single seater racing in the UK, and one which also enables racers to progress to faster cars as they gain experience.
Chairman Nick Harrison commented ‘Anyone thinking of racing a single seater next season could buy a competitive car, ready to race for less than £5,000, and with race entries among the lowest in club racing we are going a long way to achieving our goal, to make single seater racing an affordable and enjoyable experience.’
