Kent racer Aaron Steele is take part in Motorsport at The Palace next weekend, demonstrating his Grays Motorsport Formula 3 car at the Crystal Palace event.
Steele has driven the Dallara F302/4 – a car capable of 0-60 is three seconds and topping 160mph – to victory in four of his six races in the MSV F3 Cup so far this year.
“Crystal Palace should be a really fun event” enthused Steele. “Driving an F3 car around what is a park where people walk their dogs round on a Sunday afternoon is going to be a challenge for sure”.
“There's going to be a lot of hidden unexpected bumps that will try to throw the car off, and the track width is very narrow, so it's going to be a challenge, but being able to drive the historic race circuit will be very enjoyable and I'm looking forward to showing a bit of what the car can do to the crowd!”
Steele will be one of more than 200 drivers and cars anticipated to take a shot at recording the fastest time of the weekend on the event's parkland circuit. The lap features several parts of the old layout, including the Terrace Straight and North Tower Crescent.
The May 29-30 event will also feature plenty of off track activity as well. The open paddock will give visitors the chance to get up close with the vintage and modern machinery at the event, as well as talk with the mechanics and drivers.
