Ben wins at Snetterton!

Ben Cartwright had his first outright win in the Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic last weekend at Snetterton. The meeting was a double header consisting of a 20 minute race on the Saturday and a 30 minute race on the Sunday. He claimed pole position for the first race and finished second after a close duel with the race victor David Tomlin and 3rd place William Jenkins.

PFFC 2009 Class wins

After an exiting seasons racing in the Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic and two overall wins for Jamie the Scuderia Cartwright came out on top with two overall class wins. Jamie was awarded the Trofeo trophy for his GP4 modified class win and Ben was awarded the Big Swifty for his GP3 standard class win. We hope to repeat this success in 2010.

Jamie wins at Silverstone!

The weather forecast was good for the weekend, and this proved correct, as qualifying conditions were perfect if a little cold back in the paddock. I felt pretty happy with the way my car was performing and there were no major issues as the session commenced .It was my first real outing at this circuit so I felt that I would use qualifying as a steep learning curve, to build my confidence for the race.

Racing at Zandvoort

Races 8 & 9 of the Pirelli classic were held at the seaside Circuit of Zandvoort in September. After a choppy overnight crossing from Hull to Rotterdam we arrived for testing on the Friday at a very blustery Zandvoort. The paddock was full of all of the usual suspects.

1st victory for Scuderia Cartwright!

Jamie had set some impressive times in his GP4 car on Friday’s test and we were full of high hopes for him for Sundays 2 races. All three cars were entered with Nick and myself in our GP3 cars. Jamie impressed us all and qualified on pole position on Sunday morning almost a second ahead of second place David Tomlin.
