We are going to close the “pre-registration” site that we opened on MotorsportReg.com about a month ago. For those of us who have pre-registered on that portal; please be advised that the MotorsportReg folks have not been able to simply move our registrations over to the FRP site. So, it will be necessary for us to register again on the FRP portal for that weekend. You will be asked to select an entry and you just need to choose “RCFFS” and that will get you registered for the Right Coast and Golden Anniversary Part 1.
The Right Coast Formula F Series is always open to all eligible Formula F cars. We have had inquiries from drivers who usually run with the various vintage groups who wanted to know if there would be a “treaded tire” only race group.
We have worked with the kind folks of FRP and come up with a schedule for the weekend. Attached is the proposed schedule for the Formula Race Promotions event at Mid Ohio where we will conduct the first of our two anniversary events commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Formula F in the United States. This particular schedule is dependent upon at least 20 “Historic/Treaded Tire” drivers entering. This schedule provides separate run groups for treaded tire cars and separate run groups for slick tired cars. This schedule will ONLY be used if we get the minimum of 20 treaded tire drivers.
If we cannot get to this number of treaded tire entrants; then we will revert to an alternative schedule without separate run groups for slick tire and treaded tire entrants. As of today, we have 24 pre-entrants. Two of those entrants have chosen the “Historic” group and are the only treaded tire entrants that we have at this time.
The attached schedule should be used for planning purposes, but the final version will be determined as entry levels will determine if there is sufficient interest to run a treaded tire only group. We need 20 of those cars to justify a stand-alone group. Should we not get 20; those choosing to run treaded ties are always welcome to run with us in a group with all tires allowed. Regardless all will have two practice sessions on Friday, one qualifying session and Race 1 on Saturday, then Race two and a 35 minute all comers 50th Anniversary Race on Sunday.
We wanted to have a longer race to close out the weekend and FRP has been kind enough to oblige us. We also feel very strongly that there is no reason why we could not run both tire groups in a single event. We have had experience with treaded and slick tires being on the track with us on a couple of occasions and have not had any significant issues. But this is open to discussion. If you have an idea or objection, please let us know.
