From its inception, Formula Ford has focused on creating a level playing field for competitors through regulation of technical aspects of the cars as well as cost containment to make Formula Ford racing available to as many as possible.


It is very important that you understand the technical regulations as vehicles are regularly inspected at race meetings to ensure that they comply to these regulations.


Technical regulations are monitored by the FFA and modified as required to ensure the spirit of Formula Ford is upheld.

Kent engines in FF1600 cars use a control camshaft, which is numbered and recorded by the FFA.


FF1600 competitors can obtain new camshafts from various suppliers both overseas and in Australia. The competitors can then get them ground according to the FFA specifications and then send the camshaft to the FFA for checking, registration and numbering.


To get your camshaft reground or checked, complete the Application for Control Camshaft form in full and forward it to the FFA administrator. The FFA Administrator will advise you where to send your camshaft.




Duratec-powered cars in Australia must use the following controlled parts for competition:

  • Flywheel

  • Collector

  • Wheels

These parts can be purchased directly from the Formula Ford Association Inc. using this form.





All categories of Formula Ford have a controlled tyre in order to maintain equality and costs.


The Formula Ford Association is proud to partner with both Yokohama (Formula Ford & Formula Ford 1600 contemporary category) and Avon ACB9 A29 (Historic class) and their distributors.


These tyres have proven to be of great quality with nationwide availability.
