The Monoposto Season Kicks-off at Road America
Welcome to the 2013 Monoposto Racing season! We hope you are as excited as we are about the great season ahead with 11 races on the schedule at a wide variety of tracks and locations.
Our race series kicks off this week, with SVRA's "Spring Vintage Festival" at Road America, Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. This is a favorite of Monoposto, and with a big contingent of racers from this area, it should be another great experience. The 4 mile track is always exhilarating to race with its long straights, sweeping turns and the challenge of "the Kink".
As always, we will have a get together for Monoposto racers at the event, so watch for an announcement at the track for the day and location of the gathering at Road America. We are always looking for party hosts, so if you would like to volunteer please let us know.

A fun double event has been added into our schedule for the Formula B cars at the Lime Rock/Watkins Glen events in the fall. David Erwin of Erwin Engineering in Colorado has put together a 2 event series for FB cars at these tracks that will be called "Mountains Meet the Sea Formula B Challenge". He has been able to put together sponsorship that will award prizes for the top 5 as follows:
1st will be a set of tires from Sasco Sports
2nd is a $1000 gift certificate from Savannah Race Engineering
3rd is a $500 gift certificate from Dave Bean Engineering
4th is a free entry to the Lime Rock Fall Festival for 2014
5th is a small barrel of race fuel from Irwin Engineering
Formula B Drivers, get your entries in for these events and be part of what could be the biggest group of these cars racing together in a long time!
We are also updating some of our rules and one of our classes. Most significantly we will be moving the Club Fords out of Formula 70 and into the Classic Monoposto group. The Classic Formula Fords will be referred to as HFF, while the Club Fords will be CFF. There will be a separate championship for each class. Rules will be basically the same for CFF and HFF cars, with the exception of the CFF cars are able to run on aluminum wheels.
If you haven't signed up for the 2013 Monoposto series, be sure to do so soon, so the points you earn will accrue towards your championship standings. And remember, it is FREE!
