Clas­sic For­mula Ford 1600 fields get ready for two cham­pi­onship rounds at dif­fer­ent cir­cuits

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The Clas­sic For­mula Ford 1600 Cham­pi­onship is gear­ing up to hold two cham­pi­onship rounds across two days at two dif­fer­ent tracks this week­end, both of which could fea­ture sell-out grids.

The Clas­sic FF1600 field will hold a sin­gle qual­i­fy­ing ses­sion and a race at Don­ing­ton Park this Satur­day as part of the BARC meet­ing, be­fore the field de­camps to join the Vin­tage Sports Car Club at Cad­well Park to do the same on Sun­day.

The FF1600 field had 30 entries for Don­ing­ton when Mo­tor­sport News closed for press, leav­ing just two grid slots left. The grid at Cad­well Park is sold out at 26 starters.

Clas­sic FF1600 co­or­di­na­tor Peter Hack­ett said: “It’ll be a busy week­end but we wanted to do some­thing dif­fer­ent and this smacks of the old school days when For­mula Ford driv­ers raced all over the place on the same week­end.

“We’ve had to plan it care­fully. For ex­am­ple we qual­ify and race be­fore the lunch break at Don­ing­ton and have the area in the pad­dock clos­est to the gate, so we can be in and out eas­ily. Don­ing­ton and Cad­well are only 70 miles apart so it makes it achiev­able. Mike Gard­ner has also booked ex­clu­sive test­ing at Cad­well from 1600hrs-1900hrs Satur­day evening, and then we have a party planned with the VSCC to cel­e­brate their 40th an­niver­sary of go­ing to Cad­well. It should be a su­perb week­end.”
