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.
