Carl Cox Motorsport is please to announce that our New Zealand based Formula 1 Sidecar team, consisting of rider Barry Smith, Passenger Robbie Shorter and Manager Gavin Sokolich have secured an entry for the inaugural Formula 2 World Trophy event, to be held in Oschersleben, Germany over the weekend of August 21st -24th this year.
This event is a draw-card on the calendar as part of the festivities surrounding the FIM German Speedweek, and runs alongside a round of the World F1 Sidecar championship and multiple classes of two-wheeled championships.
For our class, the meeting will consist of unofficial practice on Aug 20th, followed by timed practice/qualifying on Aug 21st, and 2 x championship races scheduled for Aug 22nd.
This is an incredible opportunity for the team to take the NZ flag to the European stage- we have managed to secure a solid 600cc bike to enable us to compete against what will, without doubt, be an incredibly fast field of some of the world’s most established teams.
All of us here at Carl Cox Motorsport are incredibly excited and thankful to those assisting us with the task of travelling to the Northern Hemisphere in order to compete in this event- It’s a new world for us, a long way from home, and we’ll do our best to keep you posted on all aspects of the event and our progress as we go…
Updates on our European adventure will be posted to the official Carl Cox Motorsport Facebook page, along with www.carlcoxmotorsport.com or follow us on twitter @ccxmotorsport
A massive thanks to all our supporters that made our first year in New Zealand such an exciting season, we look forward to seeing you when we get back in time for the next Kiwi summer of racing, commencing at the Barry Sheene @ Hampton Downs in October.
Very special mention to those that are also helping us with aspects of our upcoming racing both in NZ and overseas:
