| The start of Formula Ford Festival week begins with some great news for campaigners of the 1800cc Zetec cars. The BRSCC has today confirmed that the category has been allocated its own 20 lap Final this coming Sunday afternoon.|
Festival co-ordinator James Beckett is delighted with the news, “I am really pleased that we have been able to grant competitors in the Formula Ford Festival with Zetec cars their own Grand Final. I am confident that by handing this opportunity to Zetec drivers the category has been further boosted and will now grow as everyone works towards the 2010 Festival”.
The move follows a lot of hard work by Zetec competitors Mark Edwards and John Whitbourn who have been determined to ensure the category is well represented at the annual end of season event. “This really is fantastic news for everyone who owns a Zetec as it offers them an opportunity to race their car at one of the best meetings on the calendar. We want to make the Festival the centre of the Zetec owners racing season for many years to come, as well as encouraging more owners into what is essentially a cost effective clubmans class. I hope this news may now encourage a few more Zetecs to enter before the weekend”, said Mark Edwards who will be racing his Mygale SJ00.
At last year’s Festival the Zetecs ran on the same grid as the Duratecs with Neil Tofts taking the title with a 17th place finish in the Duratec final. Neil is back this year to defend his crown and will be determined to take the chequered flag in his own right.
The 2009 BRSCC Formula Ford Festival takes place at Brands Hatch on Saturday 17th – Sunday 18th October. Entries are still being taken in Zetec, Duratec and Kent categories and an entry form can be found at the Festival section of this website.
