One of the longest standing categories in motorsport, Formula Ford has been the ideal proving ground for nurturing young, up and coming talent for more than 50 years and still continues to produce superstars of future today. Lack of aerodynamic aids means drivers learn how to set up and drive a race car purely on mechanical grip, teaching them valuable lessons that will stay with them for the rest of their racing careers.
The Northern & Super Classic Championship is a much loved and well supported regional Formula Ford series that mainly visits North Western based venues such as Oulton Park in Cheshire and Anglesey in North Wales. This championship has a loyal following by several drivers, who regularly compete against one another in intense single-seater combat.
The 2020 edition sees the series change its name from Northern to Northern & Super Classic, accommodating the new Super Classic classes that make a return for the first time since the 1990s. Not just a name, these classes mean that effectively any year of Formula Ford chassis is eligible to compete, including those that were built in the early to mid-90s that otherwise didn’t have many places to race previously.
The five Northern & Super Classic Formula Ford classes will line up as follows:
|P Class||Cars built from 01/01/99|
|Super Classic A||Cars built from 01/01/90 to 31/12/98|
|Super Classic B||Cars built from 01/01/82 to 31/12/89|
|Super Classic C||Cars built from 01/01/81 to 31/12/72|
|Super Classic D||Cars built before 1972|
Alongside the main championship tables, there are also contests for the Champion of Oulton and Star of Anglesey titles as well. Any driver who competes in rounds at these circuits respectively will score points towards these championships as well as the main Northern & Super Classic class titles. These are perfect for drivers who can’t commit to a full season, but still wish to compete for something by running selected rounds.
