Saturday we're having a fun/social rally starting at SR Racing and finishing with a lunch at Wallace Station. Two passengers are required per car (a driver and navigator.) There will be no fee for this event! If you are not an SCCA member you will be required to fill out a weekend membership form, but CKR is covering the cost so the event is free for all. If you attend our Autocross the following day the weekend membership is still valid, so it can save you $10 on the Autocross if you're not a member!

Formula Vee 50th Birthday Party at Roebling Rd.
Posted May 5, 2013, 7:01 pm in
Road Racing News
The Formula V venue celebrated the 50th year of V racing at Roebling Road on April 6th.
Almost 200 FV's showed up for 3 days of practice, qualifying and racing. The new Formula First Class was also invited. Since it was not a points race for the Formuila First Drivers Association only 4 cars entered.
However the race was an exciting one. Rob Clark (Det) driving an SR Racing Evolution won the event. Doug Sontag (CKR) had carb problems and Qualified 4th, but after an SR carb replacement he quickly moved up and finished 2nd and set fast race lap. Third place was Bill Wolfe (New Mexico) also in an SR Car. Fourth was Dave Blevins (Cinci).
Formula First is a class started about 5 years ago by SR and 2 other FV competitors to modernize the class and have a new parts supply more radially available. It uses a 1600cc engine with bigger cam, carb, disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, inboard shocks, Formula Ford tires and a longer wheel base.
The Formula First class is fast growing and has a series of its own consisting of 12 races with Sponsorship from Hoosier, K&N, Aurora and several other vendors. (More info here: http://www.formula-first.org/
