Superleague Formula is back and bigger than ever - and we've 25 pairs of tickets to this weekend's opening round at Silverstone to give away!

Craig Dolby is behind the wheel again for the Tottenham Hotspur SF team managed by Alan Docking Racing in the football-themed motor-racing championship.

The first two years of SF have consisted of six rounds but the championship has now expanded to 12 rounds including two rounds in England at Silverstone and Brands Hatch.

We finished second last season after taking early leaders Liverpool to the last weekend of the six-race series.

Seen as one of the sport's hottest properties, Craig took us to a first win in Superleague Formula last year and another six podium finishes in the championship that has two 45-minute races per round.

The series starts again at the home of British motorsport and the British F1 Grand Prix, Silverstone, this weekend - Saturday, April 3 and Sunday, April 4 - with qualifying on Saturday and the two races on Sunday.

About SF

Qualifying - Qualifying takes place on the Saturday. The teams are split into two groups, A and B, and qualify for 15 minutes. The four fastest cars from each group go through to the next stage. These eight teams then qualify head-to-head over quarter-finals, semi-final and final to determine grid positions for race one on Sunday.

Races - SF run two races of 45 minutes. Unique to SF is that qualifying grid from race one is completely reversed for race two, so if you have pole position in race one, you will start from last in race two. Points are awarded all the way from first to last, with winners taking 50.

Super Final - The top six cars (in terms of points over the two races) are entered into the 'Super Final', a five-lap shoot-out, to bring a spectacular conclusion to every round.
