French Calendar Update

Latest update from Formula Ford Historic France for the "Forecast" 2022 Calendar adds two dates:

20/22 May: Grand Prix de Pau Historique (Pau)
17-19 June: Grand Prix de France Historique (Paul Ricard, Le Castellet)

The Historic FF1600 event at Le Castellet this year was very well supported with a 50-60 car entry, all racing on a single grid, but it can be (and was!) very hot at Le Castellet in June. I was really surprised and pleased to see the Pau date appear. I thought we were not going to get further racing opportunities there. I don't know what other categories are scheduled to race at Pau.

It isn't quite clear if the two Calendar additions are part of the French Historic Championship, I'm trying to find out. If they are part of the championship that would mean it will be 8 events/16 races with a big gap mid June to early September.

The other French Championship for 67-92 FF1600s + FF Zetecs usually shares the same dates as the French Historic Formula Fords, but I suspect it may not include Pau in 2022. It also continues to show a provisional event at Spa sometime after mid June, but this may just be a "syncing" issue.

So, not hugely different from this year, though Anglesey, Brands and Silverstone are on different layouts next year.



Apparently the new GB4 single seater Series will have its opening round with CSCC at Snetterton.


I'm sure the grids will be as full as ever - not sure whether I'll be able to join them, though......
Richard, you forgot to mention that CSCC is also getting some elements of its 2023 calendar in place! Dates at Daytona and Sebring in November 2023 to help celebrate CSCC’s 20th anniversary.
(Can’t see me making that trip, this side of a lottery win, though!)

The Swedish historic championship:

May 20-22: Kinnekulle Ring
June 17-19: Gelleråsen (Karlskoga)
July 1-3: Ring Knutstorp
August 26-28: Scandinavian Raceway (Anderstorp)
September 16-18: Falkenberg

New for 2022 is that, for the first time in many years, we will race at the ex-Grand Prix circuit at Anderstorp.

Races are open to all historic cars adhering to Appendix K and with an FIA HTP or a corrsponding national VIF (subject to the approval of the organizing club, so check first). The car will also need a silencer.

Hi Simon. To say the least its a little bit confusing atm. Not talking about rumors.

I think the Historic Tour will go not go to Pau this year. If this meeting is held it wont be part of the French Championship just because HVM is the official organiser for any event of this calendar.
And yes you're right there is a gap between June and September.

As to Trophée FF Kent Zetec, nothing about Pau and Castellet on the provisional calendar.

As you say, both Pau and Castellet are part of the Formula Ford Historic France calendar ATM and forms can be downloaded via the website. What is clear is that those two meetings are not part of the Historic Tour. May be Régis knows more.
If some french grids go to Spa (I only see an opportunity during the Summer Classic) it wont be an addition to the official championship either.

Agreed again, there's a huge gap but financial wise its good for amateurs not mentioning there's time to refurbish the damaged cars!

Spa was on the cards for this season, but didn't happen. Personally I would very much like a run there in 2022. It's my favourite race track by some margin. I know that French FF1600s have previously run there in the Summer Classic with Roadbook so it could be a possibility.

This season I originally thought the French Historic Grand Prix at Paul Ricard was not scheduled to be part of the Historic FF1600 Championship, but it ended up in the points table...

Despite this sort of confusion, I wish more UK Race Organising Clubs would publish calendars earlier. It makes competition, travel and other planning much easier. Some Clubs - CSCC, CTCRC - do manage to do this and I suspect reap benefits. But late calendars are a recurring issue for UK motorsport. The bones of UK calendars are worked out before the end of the previous year, although there are often late changes due to "big" events moving around. Earlier publication of "Forecast Calendars" would help even if people have to understand there could well be changes before it's finalised.

Crystal clear. Fully agreed. Having some of those people involved in their sport/leisure/passion/hobby/job is not a piece of cake, believe me, I used to work -hard and not very well paid - with a french organiser.

French Historic Championship - Further Update

The French FF1600 Historic web site (aka Action Racing) now is making it clear that neither the Pau or the Paul Ricard events are part of either the Historic FF1600 Championship or the wider Historic Tour.

The Kent/Zetec web site does not show the Pau event in its calendar, but does list the Paul Ricard Event. It continues also to list a potential Spa event, undated. The site doesn't comment on whether the listed events are all part of the championship.

My guess is that the Historic FF1600s have got a grid at Pau, in whatever program has been assembled outside the Historic Tour, but there won't be space on the grid for the Kent/Zetec cars, whereas at Paul Ricard both groups will fit onto one enormous grid as they did this year. Hence the Zetecs/Kents are trying for a Spa slot at the Summer Classic.

Makes for an interesting set of Euro-racing opportunities for us elderly FF1600 racers (I'm not sure if I refer to cars or people, or in my case - both)

The 2022 edition of the Thruxton Historic meeting will take place over the weekend of June 11th & 12th. At the moment the HRDC have been confirmed.

Near neighbours Castle Combe have brought forward their Autumn Classic meeting from it's traditional first weekend in October date to September 24th, firstly to avoid a clash with Spa and secondly to, hopefully, avoid the diabolical weather which has plagued four out of the last five meetings.

If you intend to race at Magny this year, entering via the YTCC grid is interesting, three races of 30' each.
