2012 – 2013 Race Calendar

Believe it or not, but the first race of the new season is only four months away this weekend.  And everyone knows that the older one gets, the quicker the year flies by, so before you know it, that time that you thought you had to fix this or that on the car will all be gone.

The latest DRAFT issue of the race calendar can be downloaded by clicking on the link at the bottom of this post.  Please note that Formula Fords WILL be on the race programme for BOTH weekends of the NZ Festival of Motorsport celebrating Denny Hulme.

As part of the Denny Hulme festival it is hoped that there will be an overseas contingent coming to race in the Historic Formula Ford class with the “Internationals” getting their first taste of NZ motor racing at the Taupo event on the weekend prior – so three weekends to mark down as ones to compete in.

As per previous years, the HRSCC Picnic at the Taupo Club Track is a non-championship, non-stress, non-gridded, non-timed event just for a bit of fun and, well, time for a picnic.

A FINAL issue of the race calendar will be issued on 1st September.  Any events added after this date will be non-championship, just-for-fun events.



Cross Eye’s Up More Sausage Rolls

You’d be right to wonder why there is a plate of sausage roll’s on a Formula Ford website.  What this is though, is the view one Tony Cross will continue to indulge himself in whilst attending Historic Race and Sports Car Club committee meetings.

Tony was once again voted in, albeit against competition as stiff as Phill Goff is to John Key, to be the HFFR representative at this weeks AGM of the HRSCC.

Although Tony self confesses that he is there only for the sausage rolls, if you have anything you would like to bring up at a committee level, then he is your go-to man, to, well, go to.
