Calling Formula Atlantic owners.....

I am now the proud owner of a March 79B Atlantic, the ex Howdy Holmes car.
Myself and Alan Morgan have sent out an e mail to all Atlantic owners in the UK that are registered with the HSCC. I have had talks with the club and Roger Bevan F2 coordinator with an idea to have a stand alone Atlantic race. This is much the same way we started Historic FF2000.
At the moment Graham White has said there is not space within the HSCC calendar so we thought we would try and get as many Atlantic cars along with Formula B cars to enter the Derek Bell race at the Super Prix meeting at Brands Hatch this year.
We plan to have our own race within the D B race with separate awards and trophies and make this an opportunity to kick start a revival for this what used to be a very popular class of racing back in its day.Also if anyone out there has a car for sale they could bring it along, I intend to have a display and some hospitality in the paddock.
If there is anyone out there with a car that we have missed contacting by e mail or if you know of any driver and cars who would be interested I would greatly appreciate being contacted by PM. Many thanks Iain Rowley and Alan Morgan.

Good luck with that, Iain. used to enjoy FA back in the days of Yellow Pages Championship etc - can still 'hear' the Yellow Pages jingle crackling over the airwaves at Snett!

Iain's asked me to post a copy of the latest Formula Atlantic email here...

Good morning Atlantic owners,

First of all, can I ask if anyone has any objection to Alan and me setting up a Formula Atlantic register, using owner’s contact details and exchanging these details with other registered drivers?

Alan and I had another meeting with Grahame White at Race Retro last week. Grahame and the HSCC are very enthusiastic about this plan to have some stand-alone races in 2019 following our pilot race with the DBT at the Legends of Brands Hatch Superprix in July. Grahame has agreed that we can have a separate podium presentation for the Atlantic drivers and that we can also have space in the paddock for a display and some hospitality. We have had a fantastic response and not a week has gone by without me being contacted by owners who have cars. If you think you know of anyone with a car please let us know in case we have missed them.

I know from my own experience that racing in Derek Bell Trophy races can be frustrating but I must urge you all to enter this race at Brands Hatch if you possibly can as it will be our best chance to show the HSCC that we mean business with the plan to have our own races. There are over 15 drivers who have expressed an interest in racing at Brands and we know there are more owners out there that have not contacted us.

That’s about it for the time being - we will send out another email with an update during April.

Best regards Iain and Alan.

HSCC plans Formula Atlantic revival

HSCC plans Formula Atlantic revival

The Historic Sports Car Club is planning a revival of the Formula Atlantic category with a dedicated class for the cars in the Derek Bell Trophy races at the Legends of Brands Hatch Super Prix (June 30/July 1).

Prime movers of the idea are Iain Rowley and Alan Morgan, the originators of Historic Formula Ford 2000, and they are targeting as many as 15 cars to race alongside the Formula 5000 and Formula 2 cars in the Derek Bell Trophy double-header.

Formula Atlantic grew out of the US Formula B category of the late 1960s and started in the UK in 1971 for 1600cc single-seater racing cars powered by production-based twin-cam engines. The Cosworth BDA engine later became the most popular power unit and the class gained considerable support. It was even a support race to the British Grand Prix but faded later in the 1970s under the threat from Formula 3. After a brief return from 1979 to 1983, the category was dropped, but left a legacy of cars from a range of manufacturers.

Now, Rowley and Morgan are keen to get more Atlantic cars back to racing and have developed a database of around 40 cars. “I’ve always thought a Formula Atlantic was a proper racing car,” said Rowley, who now has the ex-Howdy Holmes March 79B previously owned by Gary Diver. “We’ve been contacting people and have had an incredible response. We’d like to get as many as 15 cars as well as a display of non-running cars in the paddock.”

“There will be a separate podium for the Atlantics and if things go well at Brands then we'd like some stand-alone races next year,” said Morgan. “But we will work with the HSCC Historic F2 series as that also has classes for Formula Atlantics. We would love to hear from any Formula Atlantic owners who haven't been contacted by us already.”
