MOTORSPORT: THE Grand Prix stars of tomorrow will be at Oulton Park tomorrow and Sunday as they battle it out for the title of British Formula 3 champion.
The scenic but challenging Cheshire circuit plays host to Britain's premier national single-seater championship at a crucial point of the series, with Nelson Angelo Piquet (the son of triple Formula 1 world champion Nelson Piquet) and Northern Irishman Adam Carroll tied at the top of the points standings.
Hot on their heels is the revelation of this year's championship, Briton James Rossiter, who has stunned with his pace in only his second full year of motor racing.
With only four rounds to go after Oulton, this will be the place where any one of these three needs to make a break if they are to scoop the title and, with it, a great chance of progressing to the big time in Formula 1, just like current BAR (British American Racing) hero Jenson Button did a few years ago.
And what better place to test the young charges than Oulton Park's famously demanding International circuit? The undulations, twists and turns of the picturesque circuit provide a unique challenge for the drivers which makes Oulton a favourite for racers and spectators alike.
As well as the on-track action from the F3 boys, there will be also be the fire-spitting monsters of the British GT Championship, which include Ferraris, Porsches and TVRs as well as a host of supporting race categories, too.
Off-track, there will be plenty to keep the whole family occupied, with the unique chance for visitors to the meeting to drive their own car on the historic Oulton circuit for a fee of just £5.
For seekers of other thrills, there will be a funfair as part of Oulton's Family Fun Day which will include local guests of honour and trade stands to suit all tastes.
