Ascari For Snetterton
The Ascari marque will return to the British GT Championship for
the first time since 1997 at the Snetterton F3 / GT meeting next
month (July 15-16), with a pair of the Damax GT3 class KZ1Rs joining
the grid - at a meeting which will be sponsored by the Ascari company.
Dubbed the Ascari Summer Festival, the theme will
be carried through with displays of Ascari road and race cars (including
the 2001/2002 Le Mans LMP900 prototype racer and the mighty 600bhp
Spanish GT racecar-derived Ascari A10 road car). On track, apart
from the Damax race cars, there will be a KZ1 course car too.
The Damax GT entries are likely to feature four
of the regular FIA GT3 Series driving squad for their Snetterton
adventure where they look set to face GT3 competition from both
the Lotus Sport Cadena Exiges (on their local track) and potentially
the Barwell Aston Martins too.
It seems that
the re-introduction of the MSV circuits is proving popular with
the teams – rather more so than Mondello Park has been in
