BRITISH F2 1992

Bertaggia won round 9 - pic from Durango site

This year the series was renamed British Formula 2, but the series was in decline with smaller grids than previous years. Champion of 1992 was Yvan Muller who drove for Omegaland. He would later race in International F3000 for the same team, before becoming multiple ice racing champion and touring car star in France and Britain. Britain's Jason Elliott was second for Madgwick, with Peter Kox finishing third overall for Weylock. Future series champ Jose Luis di Palma finished fourth in the standings. Other drivers making appearances included Vincenzo Sospiri and Pedro Diniz. Kiwi Craig Baird competed in an ex-Japanese F3000 Dome F102.
