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, as the 2017 season winds down we have approximately 34 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 Upcoming 2018 racing season to again be fun and exciting. We are using the TOYO R888R, and that tyre has been approved by SVRA to run in their series.
 

We have a couple of summer tours in the planning stages for 2018. Stay tuned to this page for more information!!

The10 drivers that headed back to run with SVRA during June at the Open Wheel Festival at Indianapolis, the Brickyard Invitational the following weekend, Mid Ohio for the Vintage Grand Prix the 3rd weekend had an absolute blast. There were so many FFords that we nearly all started speaking with an English accent! That was followed In November with the trip to COTA, 8 of the drivers making that trip, also with SVRA. Again, so many FFords showed up they threw in an extra session on Sunday for the FFords. What an incredible track, terrific people and phenomenal racing.

As always we look forward to running all the local events in 2018, and currently are planning on attending races in the Pacific NW, Oregon, Washington, N. Cal and maybe western Canada if it falls in to place. Other trips are to Utah Motorsports Campus (Formerly Miller) in September to run the 3.0 and the 4.5 miles courses. A return trip to COTA is possible in November 2018, with a race at Texas World Speedway (near College Station) the following weekend with the Charity Groups that run the very successful and well attended race at High Plains, CO. 

Stay tuned for info and check the schedule page regularly.

See you at the races!
