Euro Formula Ford | Racing - Affordable and Competitive

2017 - Our 12th year of fun, competitive racing!

Euro Formula Ford is an affordable, competitive and “fun” open wheel series.  Choosing the Formula Ford was merely an outcome of researching a number of criteria, then choosing the direction;

  1. Must be open wheel
  2. Excellent car availability
  3. Parts and knowledge are readily available
  4. Average skill needed for setup and minor repairs
  5. Fairly easy and non time consuming prep between races
  6. Affordable to buy
  7. Affordable to campaign
Suffice to say, a Formula Ford on DOT tyres has proven to be fun, affordable and very, very competitive. During the 2006 season we grew from 2 cars to 15 cars and at the end of 2013 we were 32 cars strong. Now, for the 2017 we have 40 cars on the tyres. Not always possible to get everyone to the track on the same weekend, and some cars are still under construction and/or repair. It looks like we can count on about 25% to 30% participation, providing great wheel to wheel competition lap after lap. We continue to grow and expect the 2017 racing season to again be fun and exciting. We are using the TOYO R888 again, and that tyre has been approved by SVRA to run in their series.
 

We have an incredible summer tour planned for 2017. There are 9 drivers heading back to run with SVRA during June. First will be the Open Wheel Festival at Indianapolis. All types of open wheel race cars will be running and the format calls for four (4)! classes/groups for Formula Fords (and Honda) and then everything from FV to F1 in other groups. This is a must attend weekend. The following weekend is the Brickyard Invitational, a signature SVRA event at Indianapolis that will bring out a staggering display of Vintage Race Cars. This weekend will be jaw dropping even as a spectator. If you are flying anywhere at that time, be sure to stop in at Indy! The following weekend we will be at the iconic, well liked and very tricky Mid Ohio course for the Vintage Grand Prix of Mid Ohio. 3 races in 3 weekends!! Can you say racing heaven!

As always we look forward to running all the local events and currently are planning on attending the RMVR High Plains, Colorado Charity Race end of July but not the Coronado Fleetweek event in San Diego during September 2017 as work is being done on the runways. Also going to travel to NM to join SWMS at an event there. 

See you at the races!
