The race meeting will also include a round of the very popular Classic Formula Ford Championship for cars up to 1981.

Scrutineers advice. Helmet wrapping.

The ‘wrapping’ of helmets is not acceptable. Vehicle wrapping is commonplace now, and the reason for not accepting it on helmets is simply that it can easily cover up cracking and other damage. The same applies to helmets where decals have been applied.

Helmet dating.

Although the Snell SA2005 standard expired at the end of 2018, the FIA 8860-2004 standard remains valid until the end of 2020, therefore such a helmet remains acceptable until the end of 2020.

Donington.

We are about 30 HFF on the grid, ready to rock (no rolls we hope) and have a talented line up for the season ahead.


Two or three new boys to us but not to racing - We welcome new drivers; London-based Kit Lawson in a Lotus 31 ex-Jim Russell School car of the early 1960’s. He was a Locost racer 15 years ago. His car’s last outing was 44 years ago in 1974 and may be the oldest Formula Ford car racing with us.
Stephen Mansell is another ex-Caterham Series racer joining us from West Sussex settling himself in a Macon.

The Radio Caroline Over50 Championship will be one of our big features again this year as well as our Main Carless/Championship points. We will also be hosting and trialling a parallel championship run by Merlyn driver Ross Dryborough and his company, The Worthing Implant Centre.

If we have our new tents made by this coming weekend call in for a cuppa.

Silverstone just gone.

Mega-racing even for the Grand Prix Circuit - it was tight up the top...and also for a big bunch behind. 2 tenthes enclosed the first 4 and followed by ten cars, repeat 10 cars within a couple of seconds then many 2, 3 , 4- car battles in BOTH races.
Next, Snetterton then Cadwell (live band & BBQ) Both great racing circuits. Come and see us. You'll need to brace yourselves.....

This weekend's HFF race is gonna be a belter!

We have a serious entry for Snetterton this weekend. Maybe not in numbers but there's certainly QUALITY on the grid for two gripping races.

See the entries and believe. If you can't make it, go to Live Timing all on the HSCC Website. Find a seat with some belts...

Strange over-programmed calendar expecting professional turnout of hobbyist racers... simple!
Next year's calendar will return to sanity..

Croft had good, tight racing, the Winklemann had it both times with 5 cars keeping Jackson honest.

Oulton Park next with mid-20's entry.

Two good races at Oulton, report now out soon on HSCC website. Great front/mid and rear field fights. Nano seconds between some.

Next up; one day at Brands, M25 never popular esp. by those 100 miles north...
Castle Combe; a couple of our cars (if not a few more) were there 50 years ago and are going back. Son now racing Dad's car too.

Last race and one of the best of the year.

Our Finals proved to be action-packed pretty much for everyone all down the grid. This is only a flavour of what all drivers experienced.
Twas good! Join us!

HSCC HISTORIC FORMULA FORD 1600 CHAMPIONSHIP

Sponsored by Carless Race Fuels with Vital Equipment

In association with Avon Tyres

Supported by Radio Caroline



Rounds 18 and 19: Silverstone National, 19/20 October



Jackson heads the steam train



The concluding two rounds of the HSCC Historic Formula Ford Championship were simply breath-taking as up to 12 cars slipstreamed around the Silverstone National track (19/20 October).



Ultimately, Cameron Jackson won twice to take his 2019 tally to 12 wins from 15 starts but he had to work incredibly hard as Linton Stutely, Ed Thurston and Pierre Livingston never gave up. In the opening race, Jackson’s winning margin was seven-thousandths of a second.



Tremendous racing raged all the way down a strong field and it was Livingston who secured the runner-up slot in the championship while Rob Smith emerged at the head of the Radio Caroline Over 50s category.



On Saturday, Jackson scored his 11th win from 14 starts in the Winkelmann and none have been harder earned than this one as he edged Stutely by a coat of paint after a race that had onlookers holding their breath for most of the 14 laps.



In the early laps, Jackson and Stutely (Royale RP3) went up against the Speedsport Merlyns of Thurston, Livingston and polesitter Ben Tusting. With as many as seven more cars towing along, the 12-car train made a sensational spectacle.



This was wheel-to-wheel dicing of the highest order and after countless place changes it all came down to Jackson, Stutely and Thurston for the final lap. It took all of Jackson’s race craft to get the Winkelmann into the right position to be ahead in the sprint to the line but as they fanned out Stutely came so close to giving the Royale a first win. “That was awesome,” said Jackson. “I looked in the mirrors at one point and saw a never-ending train of cars behind me!”



“I got alongside on the last lap but couldn’t outbrake him,” said Stutely after a mighty performance, while Thurston chased them over the line. A few yards behind, Livingston just beat Brian Morris, having one of the best HFF races of his career, Matt Wrigley, Tusting and Ted Pearson. Morris spectacularly topped the Radio Caroline Over 50s in fifth place from Pearson in eighth as Danny Stanzl (Elden Mk8) and Ross Drybrough rounded out the top 10. Rob Smith was next up to hold onto his Radio Caroline lead with one race to go but it would mean a 4th place or better especially if Pearson had the lead!



Sunday’s race was every bit as good despite having to be re-started after a first lap tangle on the exit of Copse. As it all just got too crowded, there was a clash of wheels and out went, Morris, Stanzl and Tusting although Stanzl later drove his car back to the paddock. The incident also settled the Radio Caroline Over 50s category in Smith’s favour as Pearson’s car tangled and was also eliminated.



From the re-start, Jackson, Stutely and Livingston eventually escaped from the fighting pack and this time around Jackson beat Stutely to the line by 42-hundredths of a second after Stutely did all he could to unseat the champion. Somehow Livingston survived a high-speed trip down the grass towards Brooklands and lost remarkably little time to ensure the championship runner-up position and third place in the race.



Thurston was running on his own in fourth by the finish before Wrigley beat Drybrough home for fifth. After more excellent battling, Smith beat Kevin Stanzl and Stuart Kestenbaum for seventh. A top 10 finish was some reward for Kestenbaum, who spun to the very tail of the field on the opening lap of the first race.



The aggregate winner of the Historic Formula Ford races, Cameron Jackson, was presented with the impressive Chris Mudge Trophy in memory of the 1970s FF1600 racer from Canada.


Chris's sister Pixie was on hand from her home in Canada to make the presentation as well as some long-standing members of Peterborough Motor Club: which first instigated the trophy. Cameron was delighted to find out that his dad Simon won the trophy during his time in Formula Ford back in 1989 - when Cameron was two years old!

Rob Smith took The Caroline award for the third year running! with Ted Pearson 2nd and Brian Morris 3rd in this great Over50's Championship.



Paul Lawrence/Dick Dixon.
