A three-round 2021 national Formula Ford championship calendar has been confirmed, with meetings taking place in both the North and South Island.
The first round of the season will be held at Hampton Downs on February 21. The series then heads to Pukekohe Park in March before drawing the close in Ruapuna, the sole round in the mainland.
The finale will be run in conjunction with the 40th Anniversary of the South Island Formula Ford Club.
“We’re pleased to have the NZ Formula Ford Championship wrap up their 2021 season at our 40th anniversary event,” said South Island Formula Ford racer Nigel Barclay.
“The event is a celebration of Formula Ford’s history and place in New Zealand motorsport and this will certainly add to the event.”
To encourage entry numbers and reduce costs for drivers, all events will take place over just one day.
Series articles and technical regulations are in the final stages of approval and will be published in early 2021.
A spokesperson for the NZ Formula Ford Championship organising committee, said they were pleased to finally confirm a calendar for the coming season.
“It’s great to finally have a calendar locked in place so our prospective competitors can start planning.
“We must extend a huge thanks and credit to the North Island Formula Ford committee for accommodating us at their events up north.
“To the same extent we must thank Nigel Barclay for allowing us to wrap up the championship at his event, we think it is a very fitting conclusion to the season.”
