The Crossflow Cup

5 Epic races for Historic and Club Formula Fords

 

Join in the fun...

51 years ago,a Ford Kent engine was installed in what was essentially a Lotus 22 Formula Junior Chassis.  The results created a class of affordable race cars, that were formative in the careers of almost all Formula Champions in the decades that followed.   The Crossflow Cup is a series for Historic Formula Fords (Cars built in 1972 or before) and Club or Classic Formula Fords for cars built prior to 1981.  

The Crossflow Cup returns for its second year in 2018, with its core objective of gathering racers who venerate these cars, want to have a great time and show the racing world the proper place for what is the most important racing class in the history of Motorsports.   With big fields, hard clean racing, lots of great prizes and great parties, 2018 will be another memorable year for any Historic and Club Ford driver that attends.  

The Crossflow Cup is made possible by Vehiclesforcharity.comCSRG, SOVREN, HMSA, Ivey Engines, Roger Krause Racing, 19York, Wine Country Motorsports, John Anderson Racing,  HJC Motorsports, Joerger Financial, Parr Law Group, Auction City, Sonoma View Winery, Car Week Concierge and the CSRG, SOVREN and Formula Ford The Series team who helped put this all together.

The Heritage of Formula Ford

It would be an oversimplification to say that without Formula Ford I wouldn’t be where I am today. I might have done it another way, by hook or by crook, but it would have certainly taken a great deal longer. Formula Ford was the launch of my career. It was a short cut launch, perfect for my situation at that time. Times change – but I still believe that Formula Ford is a good starting off point for a young driver.
— James Hunt
I wouldn’t have made it had it not been for Formula Ford. I learned the basic ground rules of racing in that formula. It was the most valuable stepping stone in my career… Nothing is cheap these days; but Formula Ford is still the most reasonable way to go real racing. It’s close and competitive and the lessons you learn in setting up an FF car to make it competitive are basically the same techniques that are used in Formula 1.

 "I wrote years ago that I thought Formula Ford racing in its heyday, was possibly the best racing there ever was.  I would say - dollar for dollar - that remains true today" Peter Egan
