Formula Vee 50th Birthday Party at Roebling Rd.

Post by SR Racing »

The Formula V venue celebrated the 50th year of V racing at Roebling Road on April 6th.
Almost 200 FV's showed up for 3 days of practice, qualifying and racing. The new Formula First Class was also invited. Since it was not a points race for the Formuila First Drivers Association only 4 cars entered.

However the race was an exciting one. Rob Clark (Det) driving an SR Racing Evolution won the event. Doug Sontag (CKR) had carb problems and Qualified 4th, but after an SR carb replacement he quickly moved up and finished 2nd and set fast race lap. Third place was Bill Wolfe (New Mexico) also in an SR Car. Fourth was Dave Blevins (Cinci).

Formula First is a class started about 5 years ago by SR and 2 other FV competitors to modernize the class and have a new parts supply more radially available. It uses a 1600cc engine with bigger cam, carb, disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, inboard shocks, Formula Ford tires and a longer wheel base.

The Formula First class is fast growing and has a series of its own consisting of 12 races with Sponsorship from Hoosier, K&N, Aurora and several other vendors. (More info here: )
