COVID-19 Information and Updates

To VSCDA Members and Interested parties:

VSCDA’s primary concern is for the safety of our racers, members, guests and extended family of volunteers. We are closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and currently plan to continue with our racing schedule for the year. This includes Gingerman Spring Brake Drivers School & Race (April 30-May 3) and Blackhawk Classic (June 19-21). Their Event Chairs are working on contingencies and new systems for the events that will lessen exposure risk for all. Of course, we do not know what circumstances will be a month from now. We will keep you informed and certainly comply with all governmental requirements. At this point, please keep prepping your cars.

We are looking forward to seeing you throughout our 2020 racing season.

On behalf of the VSCDA Officers, Board and Event Chairs,

Alex Rorke

VSCDA President

1969 ZINK FORMULA VEE-The car is in very good shape both mechanically, and appearance wise. The fuel cell is fairly new at 3 years old, and the tires and chrome wheels have just completed their 3rd season on the car, with approximately 11 race weekends on them. The tires look like new, as do the wheels, and the rest of the car. It has a Firecharger extinguishing system, and a leather padded seat, and a quick release steering wheel.
The car has placed well in the past with a more skilled (and lighter) driver. Last run at 2018 Blackhawktoberfest, and ELVF. The only reason I am selling is, I am about to have my 5th shoulder surgery, and have had 1 knee replacement, and it is now becoming impossible for me to get in, and mostly out of the car. The car is absolutely ready to jump in and hit the track!
There is a set of 4 spare chromes with tires that you might use for some practices included with the car.  There is also a single axle formula vee type tilt bed trailer with almost new tires, wheels, and LED lighting. It’s in very nice shape.
I have the log books from 2004 thru 2018.
Asking price for the Zink is $8500.00 O.B.O. Cell: 630-669-4194 Email:

FF50th @ Road America Pre-Registration

The pre-registration window for the FF50th @ Road America is open!  Before you click on the link below, here is what you need to know:

Event Outline.  The FF50th will headline the 2019 Elkhart Lake Vintage Festival, the VSCDA’s marquee event.  Formula Ford’s 50th anniversary will be a five-day party (September 11-15, 2019) starting with registration, tech, and paddock load-in on Wednesday, morning test and tune (additional fee) and afternoon untimed practice on Thursday, qualifications and 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.

Pre-Registration.  Pre-registration will be open through January 31, 2019.  A $200 refundable deposit towards an expected $550 entry fee will reserve a spot in the FF50th.  Pre-entries will initially be classified into Historic Formula Ford, Club Ford (treads), Formula Ford (treads), Club Ford (slicks), and Formula Ford (slicks).  Final classifications and provisional race group placements will be announced in February.  During pre-registration, classification and/or race group change requests will be accommodated.  Pre-registration deposits are refundable until March 29, 2019.

Regular Registration.  Pre-registrants will be required to complete their entry during regular registration.  During regular registration, there may be movement across race groups as one fills up before the other.  The regular registration window will open at a date to be announced.

Crossover entries (a driver entering one car in both race groups…two drivers sharing one car is not a crossover) will be tentatively accepted.  If there are less than 200 entries on August 12, 2019, crossover entries will be confirmed until both race groups are full.  Entries after August 12, 2019will not bump a confirmed crossover out of a race group.

If both FF50th Formula Ford race groups are over-subscribed, overflow entries will be given the option to race in another ELVF race group.

Here’s a quick checklist to successfully pre-register on the first try:

Driver Eligibility.  The following requirements must be met to race at the FF50th:

– be a VSCDA member (Membership is not required for pre-registration, you can purchased your membership during the registration process)

– have a Medical on file with VSCDA OR hold a competition racing license

– have wheel-to-wheel competition racing experience within the past 2 years OR

– have completed a competition racing school within the past 2 years

VSCDA membership is not required to pre-register.  Memberships for 2019 can be purchased during regular registration. If you do not meet the licensing or seat time requirements, the VSCDA has a combined driver’s school and race weekend May 2-5, 2019 at GingerMan Raceway in South Haven, Michigan.

Licensing.  Competition licenses issued by the VMC (and its affiliated clubs), SCCA, FIA, and CASC are accepted at VSCDA events.  If you are planning on racing at the FF50th on a competition license issued by another organization, please submit a scan of your license with your entry for approval.Calendar year 2018 licenses will be accepted for pre-registration with the good faith understanding that they will be renewed for 2019.

Car Preparation Sheet.  A Car Preparation Sheet must be on file with the VSCDA.  Here is the link: CAR PREP SHEET

FF50th Driver & Car Questionnaire.  The FF50th registration process includes a questionnaire to collect information that will be used in making race group assignments.
