Blak­eney plots His­toric For­mula Ford 2000 cam­paign with Delta

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Pat Blak­eney, For­mula Ford racer and group op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor at Thrux­ton, will re­turn to his rac­ing roots this sea­son in His­toric FF2000.

Blak­eney has ac­quired a Delta T81 for a re­turn to the class he first con­tested in 1986. He later did a full sea­son in the 1989 Bri­tish FF2000 Cham­pi­onship in a Reynard.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited about go­ing rac­ing again,” he said af­ter miss­ing the last four sea­sons due to work com­mit­ments. “I’ve al­ways loved the two-litre cars and I plan to do as many races as I can around work. It’s for the at­mos­phere and the so­cial side of it as well. It’s a case of go­ing back to the start.”

Blak­eney owned and raced an FF1600 Vec­tor for 14 years and later shared it with his son Scott, who is also likely to race the Delta.
