With the recent CAMS announcement of the discontinuation of the National Formula Ford Championship, the Formula Ford Association (FFA) would like to announce that it intends to continue with a national race series in 2014.
The Formula Ford Association has extensive history in managing national events with the championship being managed by the Formula Ford Association between 1969 and 2005.
“Maintaining a National Formula Ford presence is critical for the development of young drivers seeking to forge a career in motorsport. We believe that the gap between go karts and senior categories such as V8 Supercars is best filled by Formula Ford and this has been proven over the years.” said FFA chairman John Van Leeuwen.
The vast majority of Australian professional drivers have developed through the ranks of Formula Ford which is testament to the success of this formula of cars.
Moving forward, the FFA is committed to rationalising the costs of Formula Ford racing to maintain it as one of the world’s most affordable racing categories and make it accessible to those that seek to progress to professional levels.
This is an opportunity to take Formula Ford back to its roots as a low cost racing category that breeds excellence in driving ability.
The nature of the 2014 series is yet to be confirmed but will be announced in the near future.
We would like to thank CAMS for their support of Formula Ford and look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.
