Hi all... We are about 5 weeks away from from our first race. Drivers are polishing and fettling their cars, some are on diets and violent crossfit programs, others are karting and doing sim work. So to really focus everyone, here is one of two notes about the opening of the 2018 Crossflow Cup Championship. Our season opens March 10-11 with the HMSA event at Laguna Seca.
To enter the event go to https://www.hmsausa.com/new-events/ and you can enter online or with a mail-in form. Imporant, you will see a Formula Ford Classification that says 1962-1972... you can ignore that, all eligible Historic and Club Fords per our series rules are eligible.
Important news about the first race
Trophies - HMSA is welcoming us back and will be sponsoring Trohpies for the top 3 Historic and top 3 Club fords. So in addition to your series medals, if you podium at this race you will receive a unique trophy courtesy of Cris and the team.
Friday night Party - We will have a party for the Crossflow drivers and crew on Friday night, location TBD.
Paddock set up - We have access to the paddock on Friday, and we all need to pit together, so we will have help on the ground to guide you to the paddock space for our group
Prizes - Roger is back with a new set of Avons for some lucky prize winner (you must be present to win)
Support - Jay Ivey and crew will be there along with our usual coaches and series helpers
Masters - A New Championship
We are also very happy to announce that we will be adding a new championship to the Crossflow Cup. 2018 will include a Masters Trophy. The top three scoring driver in Historic and Club Ford, that are age 60 and over, will be the Masters Champions. To be eligible, drivers must enter 3 of 5 races, and be 60 or over prior to March 10. So if you qualify please email firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and let us know that you qualify, don't tell us your age, just that your are a Master's driver.
Without sponsors, there is no series! So please support the folks who support us.
