And is it still the same upstanding and respected figure behind it?

When they say funded, do they provide the funds, or does the driver have to come with a blank cheque?

I can think of plenty of exceptional drivers that deserve funded drives.

Danny Watts being close to the top of the list. Looks like Adam Carroll will be joining him on the list too.

Rob.

a few facts

Hi guys,
Nice to see that you keep an eye on the Autosport ads.
Yes - the Challenge is very much with us and we have done a huge amount of work in the last four years to make this the best single seater racing anywhere in the uK.
So that you know - the first announcement introduced the concept, the second, two years ago, demonstrated a concept car with Ben Collions at the wheel.
It has taken the last two years to finalise our supply chain (the car is 95% sourced in the UK unlike most other categories that are all imported) and, having found out how much investment we needed to make, raise the money. Not too easy in a 2005 economy.
If you're a Racing Driver with the right licence or a Team Principal why not find out the facts and come along to the definitive launch on 18th August (Thursday) at Sywell Aerodrome - details in our Autosport Ad.
The brand new Challenge Car will be introduced, as will our plans for 2006 and beyond and an outline of the way in which we can solved the sponsorship problem for a number of drivers, many of who have been lost to the sport when their family finding ran out.
Our new web site will also be launched then.
Meanwhile if you have any sensible questions you can ask them here.

could you tell us more about the car Peter - the one that ran a couple of years ago was based on an Indy Lights Lola wasn't it? Also are Latinum still involved?

Would this be seen as an F3 replacement, potentially?

Hi - the car we demonstrated at Rockingham was a hybrid which Lola very kindly built for us using an Indy lights tub/front suspension mated to an F3000 rear end and with the Langford engine in the middle - it was not ever intended as our production car but gave us very valuable information which proved a neutral downforce car would work and was huge fun to drive and watch!
The new car being announced shortly has been designed from the ground up by Oxford Racing and is built to Champ Car engineering standards, with the Langford engine driving through a Hewland NMT 6 speed sequential transmission. It is 95% sourced here in the UK.
It is also crash tested to Champ Car standards and will be running on the oval at Rockingham as well as a number of road circuits throughout next year in our first full Series.
I could not comment on this as a replacement for anything as F3 has a long history of excellence and in any case we are doing everything we can to dovetail around the traditional events in working out our 2006 calendar. Think of it more as a new layer of motor racing where drivers can have a paying careeer option at Senior National levels and audiences can be entertained with some electifying racing where overtaking, race strategy, driver skill and not lap times are the key to success.

I hope it succeeds Peter - I believe the UK deserves a top level single-seater series.

Japan has Formula Nippon - where many drivers race season in, season out - there's no reason why the UK can't have a series like yours as its number one championship.


Any thoughts on a TV deal?

As you will find out at the launch we are not going for tv but web broadcasting which does a much better job for us. I cant go into to much detail now.
ss-collins - you might be a bit lonely at Silverstone because we are launching at Sywell........ - but you'd be welcome there!
