F3f Southern Winter League 2016/2017
This season, the Southern winter league F3f comps of 2016/17 will be hosted & staged by WSRFC. This was similarly done for the 2014/15 season and proved to be very popular.
The Winter league comps are run in a warm friendly atmosphere, and are the perfect introduction for newcomers to F3f. It’s the way that most of today’s regularly competing F3f pilots started. Lots of hints, tips, advice & encouragement are always gladly & freely given at these events.
Southern Winter League dates 2016/17.
