    Ford Pull Funding: AUSTRALIAN FORMULA FORD CHAMPIONSHIP TO BE AXED

    AUSTRALIAN FORMULA FORD CHAMPIONSHIP TO BE AXED

    The Formula Ford field in action at Winton last weekend
    The Australian Formula Ford Championship will be discontinued at the end of the current season, the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport has announced.
    In a statement, CAMS cited the withdrawal of funding from Ford as the primary reason for the class’s eventual demise at national level.
    State level Formula Ford championships are set to continue, while an annual national festival is being assessed.
    “As much as CAMS would like to see a thriving national Formula Ford competition, this has been and will be difficult to achieve,” said CAMS chief executive Eugene Arocca.

    So where do you go from Karts now?

    Does Formula Holden or something similar still exist?

    Formula Holden was also known Formula Brabham IIRC and in the end became Formula 4000 and the top Open wheel category is now F3.
    There will still be state based FF but to not have a national category is not ideal as from there they feed into the DVS series or overseas to European FF categories.
    The most similar category to FF is Formula Vee utilising VW engines but i'm not up to speed with that category as well as FF

    There is a lot of Aussie engineered chassis' floating around in various open wheel categories from FF to Formula Holden.

    On the plus side I was planning on buying A FF for my nephew when he graduates from karting which he starts next season. Might make that purchase cheaper now.
