The Vintage Sports Car Drivers Association (VSCDA) has announced a date change for its 50th anniversary party for Formula Ford at Road America. The event has been moved up a week, to September 11-15, 2019.
The FF50th will be a five-day event starting with registration and tech on Wednesday, paddock load-in and untimed practice on Thursday, qualifications with a group photo on Friday, and concluding with heat and feature races on Saturday and Sunday.
Open to Kent-powered Formula Fords of all ages, there will be two race groups allowing a total entry of 200 cars. Tire rules (for both slicks and treads) and licensing requirements are being written for maximum inclusivity.
The FF50th will headline the 2019 Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival, the VSCDA’s marquee event. Off-track activities will provide multiple opportunities to network, bench race, and get close to hundreds of beautiful cars.
The road course re-enactment tours the same public roads (which are now part of the National Historic Register) used for racing in the early 1950s before Road America was constructed.
