The Formula Classic Racing group will be welcoming a few new cars as part of their contribution to the Free Formula category this year. The first new addition will be Dan Gate who will be driving a Ralt RT4.
The Ralt RT4 is probably the fastest car in the Formula Classic Racing group field capable of sub 57 second lap times around Wanneroo Raceway. Dan has a history in racing including a stint in Formula Ford so should adapt to the Formula Classic racing quite easily.
Other new entrants include a changing of the ownership with George Webber offloading a Ralt to Darren McKee and a Formula Ford 2000 to Neil McLay. Both are being refurbished and prepared to join the grid later in 2022.
Speaking with Brian Searles the Secretary for the Formula Classic Racing Gracing group he said “Formula Classic is seeing an upturn in popularity and participation this year and we are not expecting to see any helmets hung up.”
“We have 50 members and around 100 eligible cars and are hoping to see a great showing this year from the group.”
All the entrants this year will be hoping to take the race to the Formula Classic Racing chairman Marty Bullock who last year completed a clean sweep across the local championships including the Motorsport Australia Historic Racing and Sports Car Championship, WASCC Historic Racing & Sports Car Championship, Collie Motorplex Historic Racing & Sports Car Championship, FCR Handicap Championship and the FCR Spirit Award.
Formula Classic Racing will be at Wanneroo Raceway this year as part of the WA Sporting Car Club championship running under the Free Formula category with five rounds while they will also make the trip to the south of Western Australia to compete three times at Collie Motorplex.
