Mitchell will join Historic F2 battlers in ex-south car
Ben Mitchell says he is thrilled at the chance to race the ex-stephen South March 782 in Historic F2 at Dijon this weekend.
The Cheltenham racer has a strong reputation in historic racing and will race the car for the Retro Track and Air team on its return to racing after an absence of more than 30 years.
Mitchell, 25, knows Matthew Watts and the Retro team as he did some work experience with the team before he left school. Now, he will race the newly-restored F2 March.
“I’ve never raced a two-litre F2 car before,” said the Historic Fford frontrunner. “Hopefully I can give it a good showing but the first priority is to look after the car.”
