Entry info - Round 4, Qld Raceway, July 6

Saturday only event with Qualifying and 2 Championship pointscore races.

All classes of Formula Ford are welcome to compete, so drag that shed-bound Kent, Historic or Duratec out and join the fun!

We are joining the DSS Law Queensland Sportscar Championship grid at QRDC Round 4. Their group comprises of LeMans prototype style Chirons, West, Stohr, Radical and clubman type cars, generally all faster than us. They are expecting about 15 sportscars.

Formula Ford will be gridded separately behind their group, and will start ~200m behind during the rolling-start. This worked well last year, as it kept the classes apart and they didn't lap us.

Format:
Saturday only event with Qualifying and 2 Championship pointscore races only.

Practice is still available on the Friday for those interested.

I am awaiting confirmation of which circuit we are racing on. Rolling starts.

The Sportscars continue racing Sunday (another 3 races), if you wish to continue running Sunday, just pay an additional $155 (totalling $375). Pay either upfront, or just let me know by Saturday afternoon. No championship points will be awarded Sunday, it's purely an option for extra track time.

If you wish to split/share car space (i.e. 3 cars in two spaces), please pay directly to QR and sort sharing arrangements among yourself, I will not be negotiating bays this year. At the time of booking, advise QR if you wish to be next to another competitor you are sharing with.
