Star of Mal­lory back with 750MC per­mit

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The 750 Mo­tor Club will ex­pand its port­fo­lio of race meet­ings by run­ning this year’s Star of Mal­lory For­mula Ford 1600 con­test at Mal­lory Park.

The 750MC will per­mit the sec­ond run­ning of the knock­out FF1600 con­test, which takes place at the Le­ices­ter­shire track on Oc­to­ber 16. Mal­lory Park owner Real Mo­tor­sport Ltd will also sup­port the event, putting up £850 of prize money with £500 to the out­right event win­ner.

The Star of Mal­lory con­test has a long his­tory at the venue, but had not run in re­cent years dur­ing the le­gal is­sues that sur­rounded the race cir­cuit. Real Mo­tor­sport and FF1600 guru James Beck­ett rein­tro­duced the event last year. It was won by Bri­tish GT racer Joey Foster.

This year’s event will fea­ture prac­tice, qual­i­fy­ing, a heat, pre­fi­nal and grand fi­nal races for £240 en­try fee per car. A one-off round of Beck­ett’s Su­per­series FF1600 will also run in sup­port with an en­try fee of £125.

“The Star of Mal­lory is one of the clas­sic FF1600 events,” said Beck­ett. “The 750MC has been in­cred­i­bly help­ful in agree­ing to help run the meet­ing and work with Mal­lory Park.

“Driv­ers love the re­laxed at­mos­phere of events like this and FF1600S have en­ter­tained at Mal­lory for many years and we want to keep that tra­di­tion go­ing.

“It is great value as for £375 FF1600 rac­ers can have four races as well as qual­i­fy­ing and prac­tice.”

Races for both closed-wheel and open-wheel All­com­ers grids will cap off the meet­ing.
