Formal registration is now open for the Sept. 11-15 Formula Ford 50th Anniversary celebration at Road America, sanctioned by the Vintage Sports Car Drivers Association (VSCDA) and run as part of the 34th Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival.
As previously reported, pre-registration had to be extended to accommodate a steady influx of entries through the winter and early spring, finally closing with more than 225 cars and 255 drivers on the list. We can’t wait to see the final tally.
If you pre-registered, hop on your computer and finish up the paperwork. If you didn’t pre-register, there are still a few spots left in each of the three separate races, with room for 100 cars on each grid.
Earlier, it was announced that the Ford Motor Company will be an event sponsor of the VSCDA FF celebration, its corporate support signaling that interest in and passion for the world’s most popular and populous single-seater racing formula is as healthy today as it was 50 years ago.
Whether you are competing or not, if Kent- and Cortina-engined Formula Fords played any part in your motorsport upbringing or passion for racing over the last 50 years, please make plans to attend this fall event.
