2013 - FOC - Snetterton Race 1 & 2

2012 - Snetterton Race 1 & 2

For 2013 Pirelli have mandated the classic teams use the 17 inch wheels and new PZero Rosso tyres to replace the old PZero Corsa we have used since 2004. Unfortunately they are a significantly harder compound, reducing grip and therefore lap time. The good news is we all have the same tyres and no advantage can be gained using old Corsa's.

The good news for Tristec is that we have already run at Snetterton on the Rosso tyres, allowing us to measure our progress. In 2012 we achieved a 2:25.794 on the 300 circuit and a 1:32.803 on the 200 layout. I'm pleased to say that we improved times in both configurations with a new best of 2:23.320 on the 300 and 1:30.704 on the 200.

I will draft a full update shortly, video footage and results are below.

2013 Pirelli Ferrari formula classic - Provisional Calendar

The 2013 calendar is now in draft. We have entered both the Pirelli Ferrari formula classic and the Aston Martin Owners Club Intermarque Championship, covering the main UK tracks along with a return to Spa for a European event. Unfortunately we are unlikely to be fighting to retain our 2012 titles as we cannot attend all rounds of each series, but we are really looking forward some exceptional racing on some great tracks.
