One of Freightlink Motorsport's newest clients will be racing Martin Brundle’s Classic F3 from the famous 1983 season at the Historic Grand Prix in Zandvoort, Netherlands next month.
The F3 car rose to fame because of the renowned 1983 Vandervell British F3 Championship where Brundle went toe-to-toe in the Championship title battle with the legendary Ayrton Senna. In the 20 races that season, only once had neither Brundle nor Senna won the race. The season also had several notable race drivers for the future, including future Le Mans winner Davy Jones.
Following the dominance of the two in the Formula 3 Championship in 1983, both drivers made the step up into Formula One in 1984.
The 6th Historic Grand Prix in Zandvoort takes place between the 1st - 3rd September and features not only Martin Bundle’s 1983 Formula 3 car in the ‘Historic F3 1000cc European Trophy’ but another thirty to forty cars are also expected to be on the start line. Over the course of the weekend 80+ years of international motorsport will be on display and celebrated with several races and demonstrations.
Earlier in the month it was confirmed that Freightlink Motorsport was the preferred ferry ticket provider for the Historic Grand Prix in Zandvoort.
European Sales Manager, Adam Redford said
“I was delighted to announce the partnership with Zandvoort. It is a true acknowledgement of what we are trying to achieve. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be associated with one of a kind cars, many of which hold some breath-taking history!
We are such a small part of the race or event you take part in, but also a very important one. We give you back the time to focus on cars, drivers, history, and all things motorsport. We hear some fantastic stories in this industry, and are glad to serve it.
Next year holds some exciting developments for Freightlink as we continue to deliver the right service when it matters.”
