BRDC British F3 competitors will benefit from an increased prize fund in the 2019 Jack Cavill Pole Position Cup, thanks to the generosity of award founder John Cavill.
Pole positions secured for races one and three of each British F3 weekend will now receive £200 as well as a trophy, an increase of £50 per pole compared to previous years. Race two pole sitters will continue to receive a trophy.
The driver with the most pole positions* throughout the season will again receive an end-of-year prize of £1,000 and a trophy, signifying a total prize pot of £4,200 for the year.
The £1,000 David Poole-Warren Cup prize awarded to the team of the driver with most pole positions will also continue.
The Jack Cavill Pole Position Cup initiative has been running since the inaugural BRDC F4 season in 2013, and has continued through the series’ transition into BRDC British F3, with over £20,000 awarded to drivers during the past six seasons.
The award is named after Jack Cavill, who played a vital supporting role in the early careers of several notable drivers from the 1960s onwards.
The prizes are presented at each round by Jack's son John, who has followed in his father's footsteps, helping famous names such as Tim Sugden, Will Power and Anthony Wilds (son of Mike). The 2013 Jack Cavill Pole Position Cup was won by champion Jake Hughes with George Russell claiming the 2014 prize, having taken the award on a tie-break ahead of his Lanan Racing team-mate Arjun Maini, while Will Palmer was the last winner of the BRDC F4 era.
The 2016 winner was Ricky Collard, while Enaam Ahmed was the recipient of the prize in his dominant 2017 campaign. 2018 champion Linus Lundqvist is the latest driver to receive the prize.
*Only poles secured for races one and three each weekend will count towards the Jack Cavill Pole Position Cup.
