Major 2019 Dates
We are working on the season wrap-up newsletter and video, which will follow shortly as well as some other big announcements. But wanted to get everyone at least an early version of the Crossflow/West Coast calendar for next year. If you thought 2018 was a good year for Formula Ford, 2019 promise to be even bigger. That is great news, but poses challenges as well.
In 2019, between the FF Drivers Challenge, CSRG, HMSA, SVRA, SCRAMP and SOVREN, there will be almost 20 west coast events for Formula Ford Drivers, plus national events like the 50th Anniversary, The Rolex Reunion (yes Club and Formula Fords will be running at the Rolex) and the Lime Rock Historics. Most of the clubs have yet to set their dates, so the list below is only Crossflow points, Triple Crossflow appearance points and major Formula Ford events dates we are aware of now. This calendar will evolve and as soon as all of the CSRG, SOVREN and FF Driver's Club dates are available, we will publish them on the web site. We will be doing a survey shortly to see what you all want to do, but save the dates below if you can.
We are very much aware of the huge hole in the schedule in June and July, so if there is interest, we may see if the SCCA would host us at Laguna or Sonoma during those months.
You will be receiving a survey shortly, that we hope helps us finalize the Crossflow schedule in a way that does not break the bank, assures big grids and makes room for your interest in the big events. The timing between certain events it tight, so it is very important for us to know if you want to prioritize the Elkhart 50th anniversary event, or the west coast races. There are currently only 3 Crossflow events scheduled, we would like 4 minimum, but need to time those in a way that accommodates your interest in the extraordinary opportunity to run at the Rolex Reunion, the 50th anniversary and even the Lime Rock Historics.
Please note that Crossflow Points races are full crossflow championship events (medals, free beer, etc.) Crossflow Triple appearance points races are not championship events, but anyone that attends, gets 6 appearance points added to their Crossflow points total. The goal is to support our host clubs and give competitors who miss or DNF a chance to add to their total.
More news to follow and when you get the survey, PLEASE fill it out. Also if you have a friend that wants to join the party, send them here to sign up for the newsletter.
