Congratulations to Francois Derossi for winning the 2017 Historic F3 1000cc European Trophy in his Chevron B17. Francois has been a front runner all season but in at Zandvoort on September 3rd he tangled with a back marker and looked like being a non-starter at the final two rounds of the Championship at Val de Vienne on 30th September and 1st October. There was significant damage to the front left hand corner of his car but the team at Chevron Heritage fabricated a number of new parts and even had time to get them plated in time for Francois to race his rebuilt car.
His 1st and 2nd places in the Val de Vienne races were enough to win the Championship by a single point. Well done Francois and well done to the Chevron Heritage fabricators who got him to the grid after his Zandvoort accident.
