MEMBERS UPDATE, JANUARY 2018
2018 in now underway and we have some interesting info for our growing Formula Ford community.
We are set for a huge year of racing across the country. South Australian racers have been blessed by the arrival of a brand new world class motorsport facility, The Bend Motorsport Park. Both the S.A. State Championship and the National Championship will visit this 7.7 state-of-the-art circuit during the year and we expect large grids at these meetings.
The S.A. State Championship features 5 rounds, NSW 5, Vic State 5, WA 7 and all QLD rounds are about to be finalised. See below for all of the confirmed events, dates and the cars eligible.
The 2017 Australian Formula Ford Series was won by South Aussie sensation Max Vidau. For winning our National Series, Max was awarded a ticket to fly too the United States to represent Australia in the Mazda Road To Indy scholarship shootout. Although Max fell shy of earning himself a fully funded drive in USF2000 for 2018, we expect him to step up this year to a Porsche category in Australia. Good luck Max!
This year's National Championship will be intense as it usually is in the Duratec field. At this stage, we are expecting grids slightly larger than 2017, with a range of fresh new faces.
A 3-round National Kent Championship will be held at Queensland Raceway, Sandown and Sydney Motorsport Park in conjunction with the 7-round Australian Formula Ford Championship. As always, Kent-powered cars (within the regulations) are welcomed at every National round.
