Monoposto SUNBAC Nova Awards

Posted on February 22, 2013

£1,000 Worth of Awards to be Won Annually 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.

Monoposto Racing Club has combined forces with SUNBAC to provide the Monoposto SUNBAC Nova Awards, which are specifically aimed at encouraging new drivers. SUNBAC – the Sutton Coldfield & North Birmingham Automobile club – has been historically important in introducing new competitors to motor sport. Although SUNBAC is no longer active in Motorsport organisation their major support for the Nova Awards means that these now offer a long-term platform to help new drivers develop their careers.

Each year from 2011 to 2015, as part of the Monoposto Championship, the Awards will go to the first and second place drivers on Championship points won in any Mono class, who start their season as “novices”. The Awards provide two free twin header Monoposto Race entries in the following season for the winner, and one free twin header race entry for the runner up. The total value of the Awards is approximately £1000 each year; arguably the most valuable prize fund in club-level single seater racing.

The Monoposto SUNBAC Nova Awards are open to any full Monoposto member, who starts their Monoposto Championship year 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 SUNBAC Nova Awards, a competitor will therefore start their Mono Championship campaign as a novice race driver as defined by the MSA, with the car carrying the compulsory black/yellow cross.

The Monoposto SUNBAC 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.

Monoposto Chairman Nick Harrison commented “Anyone thinking of racing a single seater 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. We are delighted by SUNBAC’s support, the Awards will keep this famous name to the fore in club motorsport in a very appropriate way, and enable us to extend the scheme for the next five years”
