Duo to return as title sponsor for the 2016 Autumn Trophy


Following another successful year as partner of the BRDC British Formula 3 Championship, Duo plc will continue its association with the UK’s leading single-seater motor-racing series by title sponsoring the upcoming 2016 Autumn Trophy at Snetterton (29/30 October).


The four-race, one-weekend championship will be named the Duo BRDC British Formula 3 Autumn Trophy in recognition of the partnership with the UK-based international company which specialises in providing the construction industry with material processing systems, particularly aggregate washing.


After the successful introduction of the Duo Prize Fund during this year’s main championship, Duo cash awards will continue to be presented during the Autumn Trophy, with over £5000 being distributed to the top-10 finishers across all four races. As part of the overall prize package, BRDC British F3 will offer free entry to the 2017 Championship for the winner of the Autumn Trophy, with second and third places receiving a 50 per cent and 25 per cent discount on entry fees respectively.


Duo branding will appear on all BRDC British F3 cars competing in the Autumn Trophy, and the Duo logo will also feature on the race suit of each driver, the British F3 podium backdrop, as well as featuring prominently on race programme covers, other printed materials, and the F3 website.


Alex Moss, Chief Executive of Duo Group plc, said: “We are thrilled to continue our support of the BRDC British Formula 3. After a fantastic and closely fought 2016 season, the Autumn Trophy is shaping up to be another high-quality grid of young drivers and we are proud to be able to offer our support through the Duo Prize Fund.”
