Welcome to Dallara398.com

IMG_6005Welcome!  We compete in the UK’s F3 Cup Championship, which is intended to allow Formula 3 cars from 1981 – 2007 compete without massive professional budgets. In 2007 we began our single seater racing career with a 1988 Reynard 883 Formula 3 car. Championship wins followed in 2008 (Reynard), 2010 and 2011 (Dallara F398), and 2012 (Dallara F307)

2013 Going Strong

Our 2013 season is going well, after a slow start.
We began the year with our 2012 car and zero testing, leaving us slightly off the pace of newcomers Alice Powell, Alex Craven and Henry Chart. The new car was ready for Silverstone GP (Round 2), but it was so new to us that we weren’t able to improve our results very much that weekend. Despite zero testing this season, we have gradually worked our way on to the pace of the front runners, with fastest laps in round 3 (Brands Indy), wins at Round 4 (Zolder), Round 5 (Brands GP) and round 6 (Silverstone GP).

Because of our slow start, we are only 2nd in the championship hunt, behind Alice Powell, but there is everything to play for in the remaining 6 races (3 rounds). We won’t give up until it’s mathematically impossible to win the title, and that is a long shot at the moment. I’ll keep doing my best both on the track and in the workshop.

Keep track of the results on the F3 Cup website (www.f3cup.co.uk), on our team website (www.omicronmotorsport.co.uk) and on twitter by following @dallara307 and @omicronsport.

What’s under the sheet??? Livery 2013

Car under a sheet

I would like to know what the consensus of opinion is on the following potential liveries for 2013. A near-identical design to my car in 2012, but with a silver base colour.  That’s not to say that we’ll use the livery with the most votes, but it’ll give me an idea of what is preferred out this limited selection. Note that the yellow will be a bright day-glo colour.

Tony Victory Snetterton

I’ve been a bit slack. Slacker even than usual when it comes to this site. It’s not dead, it’s just resting. And I’ve been either too busy, too lazy, or too forgetful to write anything at all.  So let’s have a recap, shall we, before I try to get everything up to date (which might take a while…)

Monoposto 2012 – we ran Tony Bishop in Monoposto 2000, and with us he claimed his first win (and a second one too), some very very good drives, learnt a lot, and finished 2nd in the championship. With a little more luck and a couple less crashes that could have been a championship victory, but motorsport can be cruel and it’s easy to be wise after the event.

F3 Cup - Cup Class

F3 Cup 2012. We finished the car, and got it to the media day. By all accounts it looked great! And it drove great too...

Motorsport News Top 10 Driver of 2011

In the current issue (28/12/11) of Motorsport News, they have published their “Top 10 Single Seater Drivers of 2011″, and I’ve been included!

2012 Calendar

2012 Calendars announced

Both the Monoposto Racing Club and MSV F3 Cup have announced their (provision) 2012 racing calenders now. I’ve combined the two below, and we’re pleased to see that no rounds clash with each other (i.e. same date, different circuits).
It’s a long old season though – 18 rounds for F3 Cup, and at the time of writing it’s not clear whether all or only ~16 rounds will count towards the final tally.
