    This week in the RaceDepartment rFactor 2 club we visit Aintree!

    The Classic F3's are perhaps one of the most drivable cars of all the classics, these creations from ISI are great to throw into the corners and catch your drifts out of the corners, putting a smile on everyones face when doing this to perfection. Immerse yourself into a driver of the sixties in these cars, by joining the following weeks in the RD Racing Club Classic F3 series on the beautifully recreated sixties tracks.

    The circuit has hosted the Formula One British Grand Prix five times, in 1955, 1957, 1959, 1961 and 1962.
    In addition to the Grands Prix, the circuit also held 11 non-championship Formula 1 races, known as the Aintree 200, first won by Stirling Moss in 1954 with the last winner being Jack Brabham, in April 1964 (Brabham had made his Formula One debut at the circuit in the 1955 British GP). Aintree was the location for the famous race in 1955 in which Stirling Moss won his first British Grand Prix, driving a Mercedes. Two years later, he and Tony Brooks (sharing the Vanwall) became the first British drivers to win both the British Grand Prix and a round of the Formula 1 World Championship, whilst driving a British car, a Vanwall. The 1957 Grand Prix also took the title of Grand Prix de Europe and was the premier Formula 1 event of the season, attracting 150 000 spectators
