Writ­ing this, it seems like last year’s For­mula Ford Fes­ti­val has only just fin­ished and it’s a de­press­ing thought that it’s an­other nine months un­til the 48th run­ning of the world-fa­mous event.

But it will be worth the wait as it al­most never fails to en­ter­tain, pro­duc­ing some of the best and clos­est rac­ing na­tional mo­tor­sport has to of­fer.

Last year’s race was de­cided on the very last lap as three driv­ers – Niall Mur­ray, Ol­lie White and even­tual win­ner Josh Smith – bat­tled for the lead in a ter­rific scrap. Up to that point the rac­ing had been fre­netic as usual in the heats and semi-fi­nals.

As if that Oc­to­ber week­end isn’t go­ing to pro­duce enough For­mula Ford 1600 ac­tion, just a week later there’s the Wal­ter Hayes Tro­phy on the Sil­ver­stone Na­tional lay­out.

Put sim­ply, Au­tumn can’t come soon enough.
