Blakeney plots Historic Formula Ford 2000 campaign with Delta
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.
