New Zealand Formula Ford
MotorSport NZ’s longest running championship continues as a stepping stone for young drivers making the leap from kart racing. Race craft is honed, race lines learnt and single seater driving skills refined. This class prepares drivers to step up to Toyota Racing Series or NZV8 Touring Cars, before looking offshore for international opportunities. Many a top racing star made their start in Formula Ford and we see this continuing for many years.
