Champions and Championship Cars heading to Trois-Rivieres.
Dan Marvin, 1984 Formula Atlantic Champion will drive the Jon Norman owned, ex-Gilles Villeneuve -- Direct Film -- March 76B -- 1976 Championship car at Trois-Rivieres.
Gilles Villenueve won 9 races in this car to capture his 1976 Championship, can Dan Marvin add to this record at the first HFAA event. Marvin, no stranger to the Formula Atlantic podium with 10 race victories in his Formula Atlantic career, could very well be the first HFAA winner.
The number of former Formula Atlantic Champions planning to attend the Trois-Rivieres event is growing, making this a double treat for Formula Atlantic fans. The HFAA will be arranging a Champion and competitors autograph session on Saturday July 31st to give the race fans at Trois-Rivieres a chance to meet and talk with drivers both past and present.
Claude Bourbonnais, former Formula Atlantic star with 13 F-Atlantic victories, is looking for a drive in the Trois-Rivieres event. Any car owners who would like to see Claude behind the wheel of their car are invited to get in touch ASAP.
With the number of entries growing so quickly, it looks like we will be filling the grid to the legal maximum limit for the circuit. If you plan to enter this event you are encouraged to get your entry in NOW, as it will be a first come -- first served situation.
