Background & Plans
I have been racing Formula Fords ( 1975 LOLA T-342) for the past 13 years, while extremely fun- "with Age comes the cage" .
This car is whole different beast, Lots of HP and 2900lbs vs. the 900 lb FF with 114hp.
So far, I have raced one weekend with Shelby Club at WSIR , sense i purchased the car late last year.
This year ( 2024) I plan on running a few West coast historic, races with VARA and SVRA- ( Plus...I am Pending acceptance for the Monterey Historic's )
Although we may head to Road America this July, if Monterey doesn't happen.
