In Northern England, BRSCC Formula Ford 1600 offers intense on-track competition for drivers from a variety of backgrounds in pukka racing cars which have performance and handling capabilities far beyond that of road-orientated vehicles.
But we offer much more than sport as the paddock provides a very friendly environment which makes each race weekend a great social event not to be missed.
It is truly a family orientated arena in which “Lad & Dad” teams are commonplace. Indeed, there has been more than one instance where father and son raced against each other. Often our drivers are assisted by their wives, girlfriends and kids who all form close bonds with the support teams of their fellow competitors.
When the red lights go out, the racing is as good as you find anywhere because aerodynamic aids are outlawed so that a pursuing car’s corner-speed is never affected by disturbed air. There is always plenty of overtaking but, due to the exposed wheels, all passing manoeuvres have to be made with precision.
We cater for all budgets with a Northern Championship which comprises of 7 meetings including an away day at Mallory Park. Meanwhile our single-venue series – the Champion of Oulton and Star of Anglesey – have earned legendary status in their own right.
The Northern Championship provides just about everyone with something to race for as the cars are divided into the following 5 classes according to their date of manufacture:
|A||Cars built from 01/01/99|
|B||Cars built from 01/01/90 to 31/12/98|
|C||Cars built from 01/01/87 to 31/12/89|
|D||Cars built from 01/01/84 to 31/12/86|
|E||Cars built before 1984|
As the Formula Ford 1600 regulations have largely been unchanged since there were created in 1967 – more than 50 years ago – there is a large proliferation of cars eligible to compete in all of the BRSCC Championships.
