Star of Mallory back with 750MC permit
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.
