Ford Racing UK have received enquiries from drivers of the smaller Ford cars mainly Fiestas who are looking to take part in a race series where they are able to race with other like minded competitors in a sensibly budgeted series.
The racing will mainly (subject to confirmation) be under the race day organisation of the Classic Sports Car Club. At this stage any Ford powered Fiesta car shall be eligible and the format of racing will follow the tried and tested and very appealing mini-endurance type. This means a 30 minute qualifying session and then a 40 minute race - for up to 2 drivers. A mandatory pit stop (driver change if two drivers) will be included. The class structure is yet to be determined but will probably be based on engine capacity and type of aspiration of the engine.
The planning is in the early stages but is starting to take shape.
Competitors will be members of the Classic Sports Car Club. Current race membership = £39. Current race entry is £395 and this is for 30 minute qualifying and 40 minutes of racing for up to 2 drivers.
