The Formula F class is an affordable option for young, career minded karters transitioning to cars.
Many young racers are surprised to learn that, instead of remaining in karts, they can move into a full-on formula car for less money than a season of high level karting. A young driver seeking to make a career in racing can make the jump early, as young as age 15, and start learning correct driving techniques, proper chassis setups, as well as what different suspension changes feel like without the “masking” effects often provided by aerodynamic wings and ground effects.
The Quantum FF program will get you into a modern racecar with increased safety (spaceframe construction, full roll hoop, etc.) and similar driving characteristics found in every single-seat racing category up through IndyCars. Our Honda powered Van Diemens are perfect for teaching drivers how to maintain momentum and take full advantage of the mechanical grip provided by the chassis and tires. This same Van Diemen chassis is also used in the pro F2000 series, easing the young driver’s next move up the racing ladder.
Formula F cars are much more sophisticated than alternatives, such as driving school based series. They produce quicker lap times and better training for the next level. One of our schedule options is designed around SCCA Majors, including the famed June Sprints and National Championship Runoffs. The other is the F1600 Formula F Championship Series, which runs pro events alongside the F2000 Championship Series.
Racing against the best Formula F drivers in the country will help develop your skills and race craft. After the completion of a season with us, you will be well prepared for the next step in your career. We are prepared to mentor you and give you the proper foundation for future racing success. The F1600 series champion will be awarded an “entry ticket” to the Mazda Road to Indy USF2000 $200K Scholarship Shootout. The winner will be awarded a $200K scholarship from Mazda to enter USF2000 in 2017.
