The first race of the F3 Cup 2013 season took place at Oulton Park on the 1st April.

The weather was much improved over ┬álast seasons visit to the Cheshire circuit, and whilst it wasn’t warm, the skies were clear and the track dry.

Many competitors had been doing extensive testing prior to the event, and there were some new faces in the F3 Cup paddock, including Alice Powell, 2010 Formula Renault BARC champion, who was racing in GP3 last year; Henry Chart who has moved from FR BARC as well, Olly Rae, and the return of Alex Craven who has raced periodically in F3 Cup / Club F3. Some drivers had changed teams, and some had new cars.

Alice Powell (pictured) won both races ahead of Alex Craven, although she had to work harder for the win in race 2.
