No Knockhill on the British F3/GT Calendar for 2006. Seems that while the organisers were so busy putting in places like Pau, Magny Cours and the moon, (FIVE International rounds no less) they forgot that these are supposed to be British Series. Apparently it came down to Mondello Park or Knockhill for the last round and they preferred giving it to the Irish kart track.
Other way round for me - I love the GTs F3 I'm fairly indifferent to as it's a bit dull in all honesty but the support package with the F3/GTs is always pretty good plus it sometimes gave SMRC series a chance to run in front of a crowd.

Saw this news today.... great shame. It's some feeling standing a few feet from the track as the F3s take off through the chicane at around 90mph with total commitment!! Mind you, even more fun when they don't quite make it...
Will miss that. Hope they come back in 2007.

Aw - no fair!! I enjoyed the F3 and GT races this year, even if they were really noisy and gave me a headache! Didn't particularly enjoy trying to push two of the Porsches out of the mud though Next time (maybe 2007??) they can just flipping well stay there!!
Lisa, it was worth it though.... chocolates from the driver involved was a nice touch I thought!!
Only two bars each, though, David - for all the effort Karen and I put in I'd have expected more - couple of big boxes of Celebrations at least!! ;D But then we'd only have had to share them with you lot...
