Head to the Dolphin Shopping Centre
Top British Formula 3 International team Hitech Racing and Southampton-based Avon Tyres British GT team Brookspeed Team Trimite have confirmed that their drivers will be making the special trip to Poole to attend the Dolphin Shopping Centre’s Pit Shop Roadshow on Thursday 26 June. From Poole the stars and cars will hotfoot it down to Thruxton to contest the respective championship rounds at the ultra-fast neighbouring Hampshire circuit, on 28 & 29 June.
As well as rubbing shoulders with motor racing champions of the future, shoppers can also win tickets to the Thruxton race meeting in the Dolphin Shopping Centre’s free prize draw. The winner will also enjoy Grid Walk passes and exclusive behind-the-scenes tours of the Hitech Racing and Brookspeed Team Trimite pit garages. See details in-centre and post your entry form in the competition box next to the cars on the Main Mall by 16.00 on Thursday 26 June.
Hitech Racing, the 2007 British Formula 3 International Champions, has announced that Max Chilton (Reigate), the series’ youngest ever Formula 3 driver, will be travelling to Dorset to meet and greet shoppers. Max is the younger brother of BTCC star Tom and last month at Monza became the youngest ever pole-sitter in the UK’s premier single-seater championship.
Fresh from its second and latest victory at Snetterton in Norfolk at the beginning of June, Brookspeed Team Trimite has confirmed that its Avon Tyres British GT Championship-leading drivers will be in attendance. Southampton’s Jon Barnes and James Gornall, from Peterborough, will also join the Hitech British F3 stars.
The British F3/GT showcase in Poole marks the second Pit Shop Roadshow to be held in selected Grosvenor Shopping Centres across the UK, where the Brookspeed Team Trimite Dodge Viper Competition Coupe will join the Hitech Dallara F308 Mercedes HWA. The drivers and key personnel from both teams will be available to chat with shoppers who can get autographs and pose for photographs with their racing heroes.
With the Scalextric Roadshow complementing the event, shoppers will no doubt relish the chance to challenge the professional drivers, who will be appearing from 11.00, on the two Scalextric Digital tracks.
