Mitchell will join His­toric F2 bat­tlers in ex-south car

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.”
