The first New Zealand Formula Ford super round has been postponed due to uncertainty surrounding travel and Covid-19 protocols.
Highlands Motorsport Park in Cromwell was scheduled to host the series’ season-opener in early January.
However, North and South Island Formula Ford clubs decided it was in the best interest of competitors to delay the start of the national championship.
Taupo Motorsport Park will now open the national season on March 25-27.
A second round, held in the South Island, will be rescheduled sometime in April or May.
This summer’s national Formula Ford championship is determined over two ‘super rounds’, which feature four races per weekend.
Both super rounds will have the top North, and the top South Island competitors go head-to-head.
Regional championships will have six rounds each, with the South Island series already underway.
This year, a $60,000 prize package is up for grabs, including pole position monetary awards and three Toyota Racing Series tests.
Importantly, the Highlands race meeting in January is still set to go ahead as planned, just without Formula Ford on the programme.
