Event 3 of the F1Fanatic Forza Motorsport 3 Championship was held at the Silverstone Circuit, on the National layout. The cars used were classic 1961 Jaguar E-Type Mk1's, which are Class E 211 cars. This was much to the delight of RumblyLizard, who has spent a fair amount of the previous weekend in his dad's real E-Type on his way to and from the 2011 24 Heures du Mans, although he hates to drive the Forza 3 version himself.

The choice of car saw mixed reviews. Some liked its ability to powerslide, whilst others found it difficult to drive. ajokay Motorsport driver Ajokay was quoted as saying "It's like driving a big, fluffy pillow".

The cars turned out in classic style retro liveries, the teams choosing to remove a lot of the detail and sponsors of their usual liveries seen on their newer cars.

This was the first race for BDGP driver FlavouryRug, who was filling in as a reserve to Feta Motorsport's Tomcheesey, who had a schedule conflict with a 'The Killers' concert. I hope they rocked his socks off.

Lime GP's Javaguy360 was mysteriously absent from these two rounds, until he finally turned up at just before the original start time of 9pm, a start time that had been brought forward to 7:30pm at least 5 days earlier. This incident caused events 3 and 4 to be the only championship rounds contested by less than 8 drivers.

The event saw near total dominance from newcomer FlavouryRug, who took the fastest lap and victory in the sprint race, and fastest lap and 2nd position, only beaten to first by a shade over 1 second, in the feature race.
