Now the hectic season has come to an end, it is time to think ahead and plan. The RKB-F1 Motorsport team is deeply involved in the season ahead.

Clearly, the up-coming year is going to be a season to remember for many reasons. Not least of all the attendance of all the top teams from the UK on some very interesting machinery.
