Supernova were based in Sussex and had a short-lived career as a F3 racing car constructor, they were better known for building good looking Super Vee cars.


As can be seen from the picture to the left the SF3 was a slender design with conventional outboard suspension and a front radiator, the nose looks very similar to the F5000 Trojan design. Judging by the narrow wheels and tyres at the front and the rear uprights sticking out in the breeze these were not the correct wheels for the car. Powered by a Brown Ford twin-cam engine the Supernova had a couple of good early season results with a best of 3rd at Oulton Park in March.
