Sport mourns as pop­u­lar Clas­sic For­mula 3 racer Bruce Bartell dies

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Clas­sic For­mula 3 racer Bruce Bartell died last week aged 59 after an 18-month bat­tle against can­cer.

Bartell was a pop­u­lar mem­ber of the his­toric rac­ing fra­ter­nity and came to promi­nence when he stepped up from track days to race the ex-ru­pert Kee­gan Chevron B34.

When his ill­ness started to have an ef­fect, Bruce handed the Chevron over to his son Max who won the 2015 CF3 ti­tle. The fa­therand-son duo also raced the ex-keith St John ELVA-BMW MK7S sports-rac­ing car. De­spite in­creas­ingly poor health, Bruce was on hand at the Good­wood Re­vival in Septem­ber when Max fin­ished on the podium of the Madg­wick Cup in the Elva.
