Euro F2 - Dix Mille Tours du Castellet - 2017

The battle for the lead in the first Formula Two race with Martin Stretton's March 742 leading Matthew Watts in a March 772 towards the end of the race at the last corner.
A rather small field of just eight  historic Formula Two cars turned out at Paul Ricard for the  Dix Mille Tours meeting in October 2017.  However, they was a close battle at the front of the field.  Here are a few photos from Sunday's first race.  Martin Stretton won from pole position and took fastest lap.
