Formula Ford

Formula Ford is a cornerstone of driver development globally, recognised as the vital stepping stone for aspiring young drivers in the infancy of their careers. The New Zealand Formula Ford Championship has been contested since 1971 with the same basic concept of the class carrying through to this day.

A relatively basic spaceframe chassis and control tyre powered by a 1600cc Ford Kent engine along with tight regulations around suspension and transmission have seen close and competitive racing remain the backbone of the Formula.
