Formula Classic welcomes enthusiasts interested in
Rear Engine Racing & Sports car from 1960 up until the mid 80′s.
While Formula Classic is primarily for CAMS 5th Category log booked vehicles of the types outlined above, a decision made during a group meeting in late 2008 to organise ourselves to further redevelop this racing group. As a result we opted to drop the CAMS ‘formula alphabet’ approach of ‘M,O,P,Q,R’ and re-brand our class of cars as ‘Formula Classic’. The W.A. CAMS racing panel approved this change towards the end of 2008.
As was the intention during 2009 and this being our first season as Formula Classic it has enabled us to be more attractive in encouraging new drivers, it has simplified our involvement with the event promoter, primarily being WASCC and made it far easier for the commentators to describe our class at race meetings. It has also brought about re-newed public interest into this group.
Formula Classic also allows the cars the WASCC deam to be appropriate to be included within our ranks at each & every race meeting held at Barbagallo Raceway. These we include as the Invited Vehicles.
All of the cars you see in Formula Classic are the real thing. Every car actually competed in full competition in a particular period as noted on the drivers pages of this site. There are no reproduction vehicles.
Formula Classic will welcome anybody who is interested in the cars of this period, while our main focus is towards competition there are several members who prefer the more leisurely regularity trail runs.
On the competition front Formula Classic drivers can nominate to participate & compete for trophies in a handicap point score competition that covers all events entered during the racing year plus the regular season the WASCC point score which is open to all the competing cars.
Formula Classic members consist of competitors, family, friends & pit crew. Currently the group has in excess of 50 members and grid numbers approaching 25 vehicles per meeting and growing.
